Micro-Sized Intelligent Drive

March 21, 2012

The iPOS line of highly flexible Technosoft intelligent drives has been expanded with a new, micro-sized pluggable servo drive: iPOS3602 MX. Particularly developed for motion control applications where space is critical, this drive can be integrated — within seconds — to the user’s motherboard or PCB machine. All basic motor control functions, as well as motion control and PLC features, are embedded onto this remarkably small drive (55 x 26 x 13 mm, 10 g). Equipped with CAN / CANopen and optionally with EtherCAT interfaces, iPOS3602 MX provides a flexible, compact solution adapted to the decentralized control of any rotary or linear brushless, DC brush or step motor up to 75 W (36 V, 2 A).
