Compact positioning controller communicates via EtherCAT

19 August 2018

The EPOS4 compact positioning controllers from maxon are now industrial Ethernet connectivity ready.

With the new EtherCAT models, the space-saving positioning controllers now comply with the CoE standard (CAN application layer over EtherCAT) and can be easily integrated into existing EtherCAT networks.

The intelligent motion controllers with real time communication are said to offer a simple, plug-and-play solution for controlling brushed DC and brushless EC motors (BLDC) with peak currents of up to 30A. With their modular design, they are suited to applications with single or multi-axis systems in small devices and machines, as well as robotics.

The versatile EtherCAT controllers are available immediately in two power versions: 50V/8A and 50V/15A. Other variants will follow by the end of 2018.
