November 27, 2017 - Technosoft recently introduced their iPOS2401 servo drive with an EtherCAT interface.
Measuring 19 x 50 x 10 mm, and weighing 12 g, the iPOS2401 MX-CAT drive can be used in high precision positioning applications with any motor technology (brushless, stepper, DC/voice coil or linear) that requires no more than 1 A continuous at 24 V.
Users can achieve a mechanical integration, due to the plug-in design of the iPOS2401 that offers full flexibility in terms of motherboard design and connectors choice, for either single or multi-axes applications.
A miniaturized drive the iPOS2401 MX-CAT supports full CoE (CAN application protocol over EtherCAT) protocol, which makes it a solution to medical, robotics, instrumentation or automation projects .
A liter CAN version is also available, embedding a motion controller that can execute complex motion sequences programmed in TML (Technosoft Motion Language), stored at drive level and called by specific CANopen commands to reduce the bus traffic in multi-axis applications.
In both EtherCAT and CANopen versions, the iPOS2401 completes the extended Technosoft offer (from 25 W to 1.6 kW) in terms of intelligent drives with embedded motion controller for positioning applications.
