Designed for applications in which space is critical, the iPOS3602 MX can be integrated quickly — in seconds, according to the company — to the user’s motherboard or PCB machine. All basic motor control functions, as well as motion control and PLC features, are embedded onto the drive, which measures 55 x 26 x 13 mm and weighs 10 g. Equipped with CAN/CANopen and optionally with EtherCAT interfaces, the unit is adapted to the decentralized control of any rotary or linear brushless, DC brush or step motor up to 75 W (36 V, 2 A). Setup, tuning and motion programming is done with the company’s EasyMotion Studio and Technosoft Motion Language (TML), and the unit can run complex motion commands directly at drive level. Using the TML language, multiple operations can be executed: setting of various motion modes (profiles, PVT, PT, electronic gearing or camming, etc.), change of motion modes and/or parameters, execution of homing sequences or program flow control. The unit can handle digital I/O and analog input signals, execution of arithmetic and logic operations, and transfer of data between axes. The drive accepts incremental (quadrature or sine/cosine) encoders and digital or linear Hall signals as position feedback. SSI, BiSS, EnDAT absolute encoders and resolver interfaces are available through an additional extension.
