1. A path module for a linear motor, comprising:

  • at least one armature winding;

    an amplifier connected to the at least one armature winding; and

    a module controller coupled to the amplifier, the module controller being operative to control the amplifier to selectively energize the at least one armature winding based on instructions received from motor controller, the path module being end-to-end connectable to at least one other path module to define a path, each module in the path having a different address so as to facilitate independent control of armature windings in the path.
