Tiny DC motor controller

Tiny DC motor controller
Maxon Motor has unveiled the first in its new family of miniaturised, user-friendly DC servo motor controllers: the ESCON 36/2 DC. Despite measuring just 55x40mm, the versatile new ESCON offers extremely dynamic, 4-quadrant control of brushed DC motors to around 72W, at speeds from 1 to 150,000rpm.

A variety of operating modes includes open or closed loop speed control, as well as current control, with an array of useful bonus functions, such as speed-ramping capability and the option to enable or disable the power stage depending on the direction of rotation.

Importantly, inputs and outputs can be digitally configured, quickly and easily, simply by plugging in to a PC's USB port and following on-screen instructions. The emphasis on compactness and usability extends to hardware: no external filters or motor chokes are required, and even pre-assembled startup cables are available.

In-built protective circuits safeguard the controller against overcurrent, excess temperature, under and over-voltage, voltage transients and short-circuits in the motor cable. Similarly, adjustable current limitation protects the motor and load from accidental damage.
