Modular multi-axis motherboard

It doesn’t get any easier than this: Define the number of axes for the Mother-board, click, and done. maxon motors goes one step toward simplicity for users.
EPOS2 Module Motherboard with attached EPOS2 Module 36/2. On the right EPOS2 Module Motherboard for four axes.

For the EPOS2 Module 36/2 positioning controller, maxon motor offers a motherboard that can be applied with just a few simple steps to suit drive systems with up to 11 axes. In respect to flexibility and modular design, the EPOS2 Module Motherboard is hard to beat. Whether for experimental purposes or in series production, the motherboard is the cost-effective, ready-to-use solution for multi-axis applications.

Efficient family of controllers
The EPOS motor controller family comprises supremely efficient, highly dynamic positioning controllers to operate brushed and brushless DC motors (DC and BLDC). They are designed to extremely efficiently and accurately fulfill most complex positioning tasks. EPOS controllers feature comprehensive functionality and can be put into operation in the simplest way.

Plug and play
The EPOS2 Module 36/2 is designed as plug-in module for OEM system integration. For rapid, uncompli-cated product development and to facilitate the customer’s motherboard design, maxon motor already of-fers a starter kit with evaluation board for single axis systems.
In contrast, the described EPOS2 Module Motherboard may be used when design and manufacturing of an own multi-axis motherboard does not pay off, or when a short-term solution must be found. It is availa-ble as 1 to 11 axes version and can be adapted to suit as required. Additionally, extensive accessories, such as pre-prepared cables, extension modules for communication, I/Os, or Dual Encoder are also ob-tainable.
