Scott Rohlfs, Director of Product Marketing, said: «The MPW is an application-specific extension to the ElectroCraft MobilePower gearmotor product offering. The MPW adds to the breadth of product capability from the MobilePower gearmotor line to include industrial-grade traction systems for automated guided vehicles (AGV) and also a wide range of autonomous mobile robots (AMR)».
