zub machine control: Multi-axis controllers for demanding systems
Successful realization of challenging control solutions with highly dynamic drive synchronization or curve interpolation for multi-axis systems: For more than 30 years, this has been the philosophy of zub machine control AG. At the end of 2017, zub joined the maxon group to complement maxon's 50 years of experience in positioning control.
The company successfully creates freely programmable (C/C++ or state machine) and (on request) customized control solutions for special equipment and machinery, mobile and lightweight robotics, as well as many other applications that use EtherCAT, CANopen, Profinet, etc.
If needed, support can be provided to assist customers with a safety concept and qualification.
The zub controllers with on-board EtherCAT master and slave bus interfaces can also be used as a bridge (e.g. EtherCAT bridge) to provide the most cost-efficient and compact interface between a higher-level control system and the motion control system.

A few examples of the micro controllers offered by zub machine control follow.
Motion control with integr. power stages
The MACS5 series by zub is a flexible and powerful master controller family with up to 6 encoder inputs (absolute and incremental). Available interfaces are EtherCAT master or Ethernet, 2x CANopen, and EtherCAT slave as an option. Optionally also available with integrated amplifiers for up to 6 axes.
Motion control for up to 32 axes
MasterMACS is zub's most powerful master controller and offers a large range of industrial bus interfaces, such as 2x CANopen, 2x EtherCAT-Bus, Ethernet and more.
Low-cost control for 1 to 3 axes
MiniMACS is zub's most cost-efficient multi-axis control solution on CANopen basis, available in a compact housing or DIN housing.
