Control Techniques cease production of Digitax

Original product shots of the Digitax Drive
Way back in 1989, Control Techniques started manufacturing the revolutionary Digitax AC servo drive. These high performance servo drives would eventually become line critical items for countless manufactures across the globe. Today many companies still depend on Digitax to keep production flowing, particularly in the CNC machine tool industry. 


Unfortunately it will soon be time to say goodbye, as Control Techniques will soon stop production of the Digitax servo drives. 


Not too surprisingly, many Digitax users are worried about the long term support for this product and have contacted Direct-Industrial.com for advice.

Practical advice on upgrading to the latest generation platform


There is no direct replacement for DigitAx but we recommended the Control Techniques Undrive SP, combined with SM resolver module. These state of the art digital drives offer many more internal features (specifically a built in PLC capacity) and can be setup using your laptop .... or  Ipad if you feel flush. 


The table below shows which Unidrive SP to use as the replacement for your Digitax.
