Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components — EPOS is a modular, digital positioning controller by maxon motor. It is suitable for controlling permanent magnet-activated motors with encoders in a range of 1 to 1050 W continuous output power. The wide range of operating modes, as well as various command interfaces, make it versatile for use in many different drive systems in the fields of automation technology and mechatronics

With the EPOS4 Compact 50/8 EtherCAT and EPOS4 Compact 50/15 EtherCAT, maxon launches the first compact devices compatible with the fast industrial Ethernet connection EtherCAT. The fully integrated, plug-and-play positioning controller in a compact design is perfectly suited for use in networks with cycle times up to 1 ms.

Powerhouse with excellent control characteristics

The functionality, operation, software, and accessories of the new controllers are derived directly from existing products in the EPOS4 range. The devices are suitable for use with both brushed DC and brushless EC motors (BLDC) and come with comprehensive feedback options such as Hall sensors, as well as incremental and SSI absolute encoders. State-of-the art concepts such as FOC, feed forward, and observer control allow optimal control in a wide variety of applications.

Comprehensive functional scope and easy operation

The existing digital and analog inputs and outputs are freely configurable and ideally matched to the numerous functions and operating modes of CiA-402 positioning controllers. Products are set up using the EPOS Studio graphical user interface (Version 3.4 and higher) for Windows PCs. In addition to the intuitive commissioning software, Windows DLL and Linux Shared Objects libraries are freely available to make integration into a wide variety of master systems as easy as possible.

Motion Control – Innovative End Cap Return Enables Quiet Screws!

Question – Can Ball Screws be any quieter?

Answer – YES! The Steinmeyer, “Quiet Series”, Ball Screws featuring innovative end caps reduces noise by 50%!

Woburn, MA – Ball screws with high leads and high linear speeds are notoriously noisy. The loading and unloading of the balls against the return is the main source of noise. With steel balls and steel returns, this cycling can create a loud “whirling” sound at high speeds, especially when using preloaded ball nuts. Steinmeyer has been researching this issue, and recently announced some important results involving process improvements that may yield benefits across most of our product range.

Meanwhile, on the design side, the innovative plastic end caps provide a solution for small diameter screws. As shown in the 3D drawing below, the steel body (blue) has an integrated flange and “through the nut” ball recirculation. The plastic end caps (gray) provide quiet return, and may also include integrated combination wipers (not shown).

Quiet Series screws are designed typically for a lead/diameter ratio greater than 0.5. Due to the high lead, they are especially well-suited for use in high speed pick-and-place actuators. The screws are available in diameters from 5 to 20 mm and leads up to 32 mm! All feature dual start threads, P5 accuracy grade, and ball nuts with zero or minimum axial play. So, if you are running a high-speed application and your current ball screws are too noisy, contact Steinmeyer and ask about our Quiet Series. We may have an ideal solution that gets you running quiet.
