EPOS4 Compact positioning controllers and the EtherCAT models comply with the CoE standard0
The EPOS4 from maxon are ready for industrial Ethernet connectivity. Devices from the EPOS4 series can also be incorporated into EtherCAT networks, creating opportunities for a range of applications. The design of maxon’s EPOS4 Compact positioning controllers and the EtherCAT models comply with the CoE standard (CAN application layer over EtherCAT) and can be integrated into existing EtherCAT networks. The motion controllers offers plug-and-play solutions for controlling DC and EC motors with peak currents of up to 30A. The modular design suited to applications with single or multi-axis systems in small devices and machines, as well as robotics. Customers are also offered a range of accessories to make the integration process as easy as possible. Besides the “EPOS Studio” software, Windows DLL and Linux Shared Objects Libraries are also available for incorporating the controllers into master systems. The EtherCAT controllers are available immediately in two power versions: 50V/8A and 50V/15A. Variants in the Compact series (EPOS4 Compact 24/1.5 EtherCAT & EPOS4 Compact 50/5 EtherCAT) will follow by the end of 2018.
