Modular Axis Servo Controller.

Would you like your position controller with 1, 5 or 11 axis?

Now available from maxon motor ag is the completely innovative modular system position controller that is available globally in any number of axis up to 11. The unique system allows either the user or supplier to simply snap off an axis. The 11 axis motherboard features a unique perforated or breakout design that is both robust enough for OEM integration but also features a cut point for separation down to smaller drive number configuration.  So if maxon have a request for a 4 axis control unit they simply take the 11 axis controller and divide it into a 7 axis and 4 axis. The 4 axis unit is sent to a customer and the leftover 7 are put on the shelf for the next application for 7 or less axis.

To drastically reduce cabling requirements for power and communications the controller system features and internal CAN bus system that simply jumps the segments of the motherboard allowing a single connection at the start of the motherboard that can be easily separated at any point. Every segment features a BUS termination resistor that can be selected if it is the last node on the CAN line. Power is also carried down the motherboard system and across the breakout points by jumpers.

Each unit is supplied with a powerful software configuration suite that features a user friendly graphical interface for drive configuration and auto tuning of the motion control card with your selected motor. With this interface you can see all axis in your machine and freely adjust the parameters of each. The motherboard features a USB and RS232 gateway for easy connection and setup and is supplied with leads and optional longer pre-configured cables.
