Drives and controls

The field of drives and controls is concerned with solutions for the reliable detection, monitoring, and control of movements in electrical, pneumatic, and hydraulic drive elements and systems, such as rotative and linear motors, actuators, linear axes, robots, and pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders, including the corresponding amplifiers and controllers. As manufacturers of drive and automation technology often supply solutions to the wind industry, this is considered to be a subsegment of drives and controls.
