The company’s compact drives feature controllers, sensors and motors in an aluminum casing and, when combined with the company’s existing products, are said to produce robust, space-saving and high-power density drive solutions. According to the company, the MCD EPOS is a highly dynamic, maintenance-free positioning drive with a fieldbus connection and a maximum 60 W output. The drives are said to be extremely flexible and can be used in automation, robotics or laboratory applications. The units are reported to combine a brushless EC motor, a digital encoder and a digital EPOS positioning controller at a very competitive price. The drive’s output goes up to 60 W. Wiring is kept to a minimum through direct connection to the CANopen bus or an SPS controller. The drive is controlled, configured and diagnosed via the CANbus or serial interface (RS232). Several optically coupled inputs and outputs mean that sensors and events can be evaluated directly in the drive. Maxon Precision Motors
