Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Control Techniques' Excellence In Product Line Strategy In The European Electric Drives Market For Manufacturing

LONDON, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent research on the electric drives market for manufacturing automation, Frost & Sullivan presents Control Techniques with the 2013 European Product Line Strategy Award. The company has exhibited a superior ability to meet and exceed customer needs in the global manufacturing automation market. This has resulted in the market success of its latest Unidrive M series drives, designed specifically for the manufacturing sector.

"Our research shows that the European market for electric drives was valued at $3.00 billion in 2012, and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 3.7 per cent until 2017," said Frost & Sullivan Research Manager Sivakumar Narayanaswamy. "Manufacturing automation holds a significant proportion of this market and Control Techniques' Unidrive M range is one of the world's most comprehensive classes of drives for manufacturing automation applications."

Control Techniques makes extensive efforts to understand the specific needs of its customers and designs its products to precisely match these needs. The Unidrive M range offers incremental levels of functionality designed to precisely meet the full range of application requirements including the most complex needs in the manufacturing automation sector.

The Unidrive M family is designed to give exceptional control of virtually all types of industrial electric motors in manufacturing automation applications ranging from standard induction, permanent magnet motors to high performance servo motors, and can operate in open or closed loop modes.

Every drive in the Unidrive M family features a totally open creation environment.  This means that machine designers using the drives have an extremely wide choice of machine components and are not restricted by closed systems.  Unidrive M uses the CODESYS programming platform with industry standard IEC 61131-3 programming languages and standard Ethernet for communication across drives and other industrial devices such as PLCs.  Unidrive M also supports connectivity with PROFINET RT, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP and EtherCAT devices.
