Maxon's 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 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 motion control functionalities, offering a dual loop
position and speed controller. In Interpolated Position Mode (PVT), the position
controller is able to synchronously follow a path set by support points. During
start-up, current, speed or position controls can be set through enhanced Regulation
Tuning. This intelligent solution is easy to use and again highlights the
benefits of the positioning controller.
Commanding can take place using CAN Master, for example EPOS2 P, SPS, Soft SPS,
PLC or using PC via USB or RS232. Several drives can be networked and
coordinated through the standardized CANopen interface. Additionally integrated
gateway functions such as USB to CAN or RS232 to CAN help simplify access to
the CAN network.
