Dynamic and precise: The perfect OEM drive solution
Available from maxon
As an addition to the EPOS family, maxon now presents an OEM version. The miniaturized EPOS2 Module 36/2 is designed to control brush DC motors as well as brushless EC motors. The well-priced plug-in module offers full motion control functionalities and suits single-axis and multiple-axis applications of miniature size.
One year ago, maxon motor launched its new generation EPOS2 digital positioning control unit and extended the existing series with products featuring Interpolated Position Mode (PVT) and USB interface. The latest member of the EPOS2 family is the EPOS2 Module 36/2. The high-performance plug-in module seamlessly integrates into customer applications.
One major advantage of the position controller is its outstanding flexibility. It can be operated in various operational modes. With its size of only 54x28x9 mm and performance characteristics, the module is especially suitable as an OEM component.
As with all products of the EPOS series, this module has also been developed to command and control within a CANopen network. Needless to say, it also can communicate via USB or RS232 interface. Additionally, step motors can be substituted by employing the featured «Step/Direction Mode» and the «Master Encoder Mode» transforms the drive into an electronic gearbox. Control via an analogue set value voltage can replace conventional servo amplifier setups.
maxon also offers a comprehensive Starter Kit including an Evaluation Board for a single-axis system.
