Miniaturised Controllers

24 October 2012

maxon motor has unveiled the first in its new family of miniaturised, user-friendly DC motor controllers: the ESCON 36/2 DC.

Despite measuring just 55 x 40mm, the versatile ESCON offers extremely dynamic, 4-quadrant control of brushed DC motors to around 72W, at speeds from 1 to 150,000rpm.

Operating modes include open or closed loop speed control, as well as current control. Further functionality, includes speed-ramping and the option to enable or disable the power stage depending on the direction of rotation.

Inputs and outputs can be digitally configured, quickly and easily, simply by plugging in to a PCs USB port and following on-screen instructions.

The emphasis on compactness and usability extends to hardware: no external filters or motor chokes are required, and even pre-assembled startup cables are available.
