Escon DC motor controllers
The Escon range of DC motor controllers from Maxon Motor has been expanded with two additional products: the Escon 70/10 and the Escon 50/5 module for OEM integration.
The Escon 70/10 servo controller for brushed and brushless DC motors is controlled by means of an analogue set value, which can be specified by means of analogue voltage up to 700W, an external or internal potentiometer, a defined value or a PWM signal with variable duty cycle.
The Escon 50/5 module is a miniaturised OEM plug-in for the servo controller series. The compact four-quadrant PWM servomotor controller enables the efficient control of permanent-magnet brushed and brushless DC motors with Hall sensors — up to approximately 250W.
Servo controllers in the Escon range feature freely assignable I/O for flexible integration, PWM inputs for setpoint values and analogue inputs and outputs.
Products in detail
- Escon 70/10 offers high usability and excellent performance
- It has the ability to enable or disable the power stage depending on the direction of rotation or the use of speed ramps for acceleration and deceleration
- Speed can be regulated by means of a digital incremental encoder (two channel with/without line driver), DC tacho or Hall sensors
- OEM plug-in module has good control properties and a fast digital current controller with a large bandwidth for optimal motor current/torque control
- Drift-free dynamic speed behaviour enables a speed range of 0–150,000rev/min
- It features a wide range of functions with fully configurable digital and analogue inputs and outputs
- It can be run in various motion control operating modes (speed controller [closed loop], speed controller [open loop], current controller)
Casella has launched its new Apex2 range of personal air sampling pumps, using maxon’s DC motors, to monitor the personal exposure to dust, fumes and vapours in high-risk occupational sectors and to safeguard the future health of workers against serious respiratory disease.
maxon motor has helped a UK company called Torvine, which was trying to produce the ultimate milling machines to solve both these issues. The result is the Dermamill 100, which is suitable for use by compounding pharmacists.
OC Robotics has developed remote robots designed for handling operations within confined or hazardous spaces.
There are two basic requirements that machines, systems and devices must meet in order to succeed in the market: an extensive range of functions and high reliability. However, today these two factors only allow very little scope for differentiation. Increasingly, machine and device manufacturers face the question of how to achieve a competitive advantage on the market, apart from price. One common approach is to differentiate into the product design, handling and user interface.
