Maxon Motor has expanded its second-generation Epos2 range of positioning systems to include the 70/10 controller, which is suitable for demanding automation and mechatronics applications.

The Epos2 70/10 now offers an improved efficiency of 94 per cent, according to the company.

The enhanced unit is particularly suitable for use in the demanding automation and mechatronics industries thanks to its wide range of operational modes.

These include open dual-loop positioning; the unit can also act as a speed controller, meaning loads can be accurately placed.

The Epos2 70/10 can be used for commanding and controlling in the Canopen network alongside USB and RS232.

As a replacement for the stepper motor, step-by-step movement can now be controlled directly using the Step/Direction function, while the Master Encoder Mode allows the Epos2 70/10 to be used as an electronic gearhead.

In its Interpolated Position Mode, the Epos2 70/10 can be used to run a path synchronously with high accuracy, making it ideal for production applications.

The new Epos2 70/10 is compatible with Maxon’s DC brush motors with encoder, as well as the range of brushless EC motors equipped with Hall sensors.
