Maxon Release the EPOS2 P 24/5, an advanced second generation positioning controller

The EPOS2 P 24/5 is a freely programmable positioning controller. The programming of applications complies with the IEC 61131-3 standard. The integrated power stage is based on the EPOS2 slave version. It is suitable for brushless and brushed DC motors with incremental encoder and up to 120 watt output power.

Of course, the already known characteristics of EPOS P 24/5 can also be found in the new EPOS2 P 24/5. This with the subtle distinction of further improved properties and a USB Port as additional communication interface. As a novelty the EPOS2 P 24/5 can communicate with a superior process level for supervisory control and data acquisition.

Full backward compatibility – both, in regard to electrical and mechanical aspects – towards EPOS P 24/5 permits alternative employment. Apart from identical dimensions and mounting hole pattern also the connections are pin-compatible. Alike, an existing EPOS P 24/5 IEC-61131 program can be downloaded into the new EPOS2 P 24/5 by using the «EPOS Studio».

With self-compiled programs, the programmable positioning controller EPOS2 P 24/5 can autonomously control single and multiple axis systems. Via the CAN Bus all axes can be coordinated simultaneously.

Thanks to the communication interface to the superior process level, supervisory control and data acquisition via RS232; USB 2.0 or CANopen is now possible.

Editors (ST, IL, FBD, LD, SFC) of the powerful “EPOS Studio” tool are available for programming according to IEC 61131-3. The integrated project browser shows all network resources. Complex programs with a large number of decentralized controls can be optimally managed with it. Drive systems are configured and networked quickly using intelligent step-by-step wizards. The redesigned feature «Regulation Tuning» permits an extremely efficient adjustment of current, velocity or position regulation during commissioning.

With EPOS2 P 24/5, EC motors with block commutation of up to 100,000 rpm and 120 watts can be operated. The encoder input offers a resolution of 2,500,000 increments and an input frequency of up to 5MHz. The analog inputs feature 12-bit resolution (that is quadrupled compared to the EPOS P 24/5).
