Very interesting how new control options and capability can be packed into small plug-in modules. Ideal for OEMs looking for specific solution.

True, Al, this is one direction these components are going. Less is indeed more in some cases.

Its a great piece of equipment. having the option to configure the controller acording to our needs provides a great flexibility at the users end. And its safety circuits will also make it comfortable to use.

But I think that it would have been great if they had also designed the the controller for high Ampere rating motors. This controller is a great device for mini servo motor and in robot design. But if we have to make use of such equipment on an industrial scale, it would be better if it caters for more current rating.

Thanks for this user perspective, taimoortariq. And your feedback on what kind of support should be included is also appreciated; perhaps Maxon will add something like this in a future version of the product or a separate motor.

An efficiency rate of 98% is incredible. I can't wait to see what projects will take advantage of the board. Add on boards for driving larger motors?
