Versatile, second generation controller is 94% efficient

Versatile, second generation controller is 94% efficient maxon motor has expanded its second generation range of Easy-to-use Positioning Systems (EPOS2) to include the popular 70/10 controller. The company has introduced a number of refinements to its EPOS2 70/10 that make the model even more versatile. The EPOS2 70/10 now boasts an improved efficiency of 94% - making it one of the most efficient positioning systems in the world.

The newly enhanced unit is particularly apt for the demanding automation and mechatronics industries thanks to an unusually wide variety of operational modes. These include open dual loop positioning as well as acting as a speed controller, meaning loads can be placed with extreme accuracy. What's more, 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, whilst 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 exceptional 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 their range of brushless EC motors equipped with Hall sensors.

maxon motor uk sales engineer Greg Dutfield says: "At maxon we are constantly improving our products to meet the needs of the engineers who use them. This new EPOS2 70/10 can be used in more ways than ever before, so engineers can confidently use it in virtually any application they choose."
