EPOS2 24/2 - Miniaturized Positioning Controller - No Ifs, No Buts.
EPOS (easy to use positioning system) is being expanded again in a second generation. Several variants of the EPOS2 24/2 positioning controller permit the use of various brushed DC motors with encoder or brushless EC motors with Hall sensors and encoder up to 48 Watts. As with all other maxon motor EPOS products, the EPOS2 24/2 was developed specifically for commanding and controlling in the CANopen network. USB and RS232 are available as further communication interfaces. The variety of operating modes, such as position, velocity and current mode, means they can be used flexibly in automation technology, tool building and in mechatronic drive systems. There are also functions such as «Step/Direction Mode» for the incrementally controlled movement of the motor shaft or «Master Encoder Mode» for applying the drive as electronic gearing. Commanding through an analog set value voltage may replace conventional servo amplifier applications. The EPOS2 24/2 features outstanding motion contro
