USB and RS232 interfaces are also available. The variety of operating modes, such as position, velocity and current mode, means they can be used in automation technology, tool building and in mechatronic drive systems. There are also functions such as Step/Direction Mode for the incrementally controlled movement of the motor shaft or Master Encoder Mode for applying the drive as electronic gearing. Commanding through an analog set value voltage may replace conventional servo amplifier applications. The EPOS2 24/2 features outstanding motion control functionalities, says the vendor, offering a dual-loop position and speed controller.
