May the cforce be with you

With the cforce motors we opened a new gate into the LBUS-galaxy.

cforce motors

2012 cmotion introtuced the first cforce basic motor as part of the compact LCS product line.
Just one year later ARRI and cmotion integrated the concept of the LBUS based motors in to their best selling Alexa Mini camera, and introduced the cforce mini motor. From that day, cmotion and ARRI is pushing the limits and are enhancing the LBUS protocol from day to day, offering new features and compatibilities with this unique daisy-chain concept.

The cforce plus, which was introduced in 2016 offers a super high torque and faster speed, to drive even the stiffest lenses, even in coldest conditions.
