maxon motor launches a new intelligent positioning controller.
maxon EPOS positioning controllers are the ideal choice for applications that require decentralized drive intelligence. These modular digital positioning controllers, based on CANopen standard, cover a performance range from 1 – 700 watts. They can operate in position, speed and current control mode, and can be configured to operate with both DC brushed and EC brushless motors. A variety of operating modes means that they can be used flexibly in every kind of drive system.
The new EPOS2, with 32-bit digital signal processor technology, supports the very best motion control functionalities. Complex mathematical algorithms can therefore be carried out efficiently. This produces excellent control characteristics. The new EPOS2 offers excellent security and effective protection against electromagnetic interference as a result of potential-separated digital inputs and outputs. With a suitable master, coordinated multi-axis movements and any profile can be carried out in a 1-axis system. The upgraded regulation tuning functionality is an effective and time-saving tool for adjusting power, speed or position control. It is also easy to use and significantly simplifies set-up of the new positioning controller.
The compact design of the new EPOS2 50/5 means it can be used in areas such as tool building, production machinery, and automation tasks.
