EPOS2 Positioning Controllers Support Additional Platforms

The easy-to-use positioning system is a simple and fast incorporation into various solutions, and freely available libraries are supported.

The maxon motor EPOS2 motion controllers for DC and brushless DC electric (BLDC) motors are being enriched by possible fields of applications.

Deployment of computer-based drive control rather than traditional programmable logic controller (PLC) systems is becoming prevalent in practice.

With Kvaser and NI-XNET, new CANopen interfaces are supported, in addition to existing solutions such as NI, IXXAT and Vector. There are new opportunities for computer platforms with serial communication via USB or RS232 under Windows or Linux.

Existing libraries for Intel / AMD (Windows 32 / 64-Bit, Linux 32-Bit) are extended with Linux 64-Bit version.

Additional support of 32-Bit ARMv6 / v7 solutions allows the broad scale use of trend platforms, such as Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone.

The easy-to-use positioning system is a simple and fast incorporation into various solutions, and freely available libraries are supported.

With controller architectures, a variety of motion control components of various suppliers are used. Easy integration into the superior master system plays a crucial role for success.

Using freely available, extensively documented maxon libraries, integration of EPOS2 slave drive controllers are quick, and help reduce elaborate interface programming.
