Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control – Advanced Motion Controls (AMC), a leading provider of servo amplifier solutions, is proud to announce the addition of six new CANopen servo drives with Extended Environment capabilities to their FlexPro® line. These new drives join AMC’s existing EtherCAT Extended Environment FlexPro drives, making the FlexPro® line the go-to solution for motion control applications in harsh environments.

Many motion control applications take place in conditions that are less than ideal, such as extreme temperatures, high and low pressures, shocks and vibrations, and contamination. Electronics, including servo drives, can malfunction or sustain permanent damage in these conditions. That’s why AMC offers off-the-shelf extended environment servo drives within the FlexPro™, DigiFlex® Performance™, and AxCent™ drive families, as well as custom-made modified servo drives to handle extreme conditions.

Motion Control – The Mars helicopter made history – with maxon’s precision motors!

Motion Control – Mars helicopter has maxon’s motors!

Space fans are thrilled: NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter has successfully completed its pioneering flight on Mars. This is the first time in the history of powered, unmanned spaceflight that a device has flown in a controlled manner on another planet.

motion control - mars helicopter


motion control - maxonTaunton, MA — Motion Control Products – A short flight for “Ingenuity,” but a big success for unmanned space flight. NASA’s Mars helicopter flew over the surface of the Red Planet for about 40 seconds on Monday, April 19th and landed back on four legs. From NASA’s perspective, this is a historic event similar to the Wright brothers’ first controlled flight in 1903.

With the Mars helicopter, the concept of powered, unmanned, and autonomous flights on foreign planets is being tested. This is comparable to the first Mars rover “Sojourner”, which paved the way for scientific follow-up missions such as “Curiosity” and currently “Perseverance”. “Ingenuity” is about to complete several flights over a period of 30 days, each lasting up to 90 seconds and reaching a maximum altitude of five meters.
