Integration made easy

27 December 2014

Deployment of computer-based motor drive, rather than traditional PLC systems, is becoming more and more prevalent. maxon motor EPOS2 positioning controllers now support CANopen interfaces Kvaser and NI-XNET, in addition to the existing NI, IXXAT and Vector.

There are also new opportunities for computer platforms with serial communication, via USB or RS232, using Windows or Linux.

The existing libraries for Intel/AMD (Windows 32/64-Bit, Linux 32-Bit) are further extended with a Linux 64-Bit version, with additional support of 32-Bit ARMv6/v7 solutions allows the broad scale use of trend platforms, such as Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone.

Easy integration into a master system plays a crucial role in the success of the EPOS2. The choice of master system is freely available, using extensively documented maxon libraries to make integration of EPOS2 slave drive controllers a quick and simple task.
