Technosoft (Bevaix, Switzerland) offers the iPOS3602 MX micro-sized, pluggable servo drive for motion control applications where space is critical. The drive can be integrated into 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. Equipped with CAN/CANopen, and optionally with an EtherCAT interface, the drive can be adapted to the decentralized control of any rotary or linear brushless, DC brush, or step motor up to 75W. Setup, tuning, and motion programming are done with EasyMotion Studio and Technosoft Motion Language (TML). Multiple operations can be executed with the drive, including setting of various motion modes, change of motion modes and/or parameters, execution of homing sequences, or program flow control.
At the same time, the drive can handle digital I/O and analog input signals, execution of arithmetic and logic operations, and transfer of data between axes. It accepts incremental encoders and digital or linear Hall signals as position feedback.
