Maxon’s ESCON 36/3 EC offers a compact 4 quadrant PWM controller.

Maxon introduced its ESCON 36/3 EC, a 4-quadrant PWM servo controller designed for control of brushless DC motors with Hall sensors up to approximately 100 Watts. The controller features a fast digital current controller with a large bandwidth for optimal motor current/torque control. Its speed behavior enables a speed range of 0 to 150,000 rpm.

The ESCON 36/3 EC is controlled by means of an analog set value that can be specified by means of analog voltage, an external or internal potentiometer, a defined value or by means of a PWM signal with variable duty cycle. During startup and configuration of the inputs and outputs, monitoring, data recording and diagnostics, the user has access to a variety of functions and is assisted by user friendly software wizards.

The ESCON 36/3 EC also has protective circuits against over current, excess temperature, under- and over-voltage, against voltage transients and against short-circuits in the motor cable. It is equipped with protected digital inputs and outputs and an adjustable current limitation for protecting the motor and the load.
