The EPOS2 24/2 positioning controller operates with the CANopen network, as well as USB and RS232 communication interfaces. Operating modes include position, velocity and current mode. Functions such as Step/Direction Mode deliver incrementally controlled movement of the motor shaft; Master Encoder Mode applies the drive as electronic gearing.
Commanding through an analog set value voltage may replace conventional servo amplifier applications. In Interpolated Position Mode (PVT), the position controller can synchronously follow a path set by support points–highly dynamic and with great precision. During start-up, current, speed, or position controls can be set through enhanced Regulation Tuning.
Commanding can take place using CAN Master, for example EPOS2 P, SPS, Soft SPS, PLC or using PC via USB or RS232. Several drives can be networked and coordinated through the standardized CANopen interface. Additionally integrated gateway functions such as USB to CAN or RS232 to CAN help simplify access to the CAN network even more.
