MicroFlex™ e100Ethernet POWERLINK

Ethernet POWERLINK AC servo drive

MicroFlex e100


MicroFlex™ e100 integrates the advanced capabilities of real-time Ethernet POWERLINK to provide superior performance, network integration and costs savings. MicroFlex e100 is compatible with the NextMove e100 motion controller to provide a fully integrated solution using real-time Ethernet.

  • 1phase110-230VAC or 3 phase 230VAC
  • 3, 6 and 9Amp 200% overload 3 seconds
  • NEW 2.5, 5.25, 7.5 Amp 300% overload for 3 seconds
  • High performance servo control for both rotary and linear brushless motors.
  • A universal digital encoder feedback
  • Integrated Ethernet Powerlink and Modbus TCP


25% more torque

MicroFlex e150 and MicroFlex e100 now provide up to 25% more peak torque

A new dynamic mode providing up to 300% of rms current for up to 3 seconds, extend the peak current and hence peak torque capability of MicoFlex e100 and award winning MicroFlex e150 as standard.

e100 Ethernet Machine Control Solutions

MicroFlex e100 is compatible with ABB's multi-axis machine controller, NextMove e100 and range of single phase servo drives, MotiFlex e100 which operate over Ethernet POWERLINK.
