MAXPOS Drive Controller – the success of dynamics
To succeed in your market, applications require an extensive range of functions and high reliability – two factors that currently allow very little scope for differentiation.
One large challenge for almost any project is the combination of several engineering disciplines, such as mechanical and electrical engineering, software development and perhaps even hardware development. All of these disciplines are required for an optimised system design. To reduce the development cost and risk, it’s advisable to select standardised components that match to each other and provide the required performance across the board. maxon motor as a drive and controller manufacturer provides high-quality products and offers the required consultation and problem-solving competence, based on in-depth expertise in thousands of industry-proven applications.
In order to succeed in the market there are two basic requirements that ultramodern machines, systems and devices must meet – an extensive range of functions and high reliability. However, these two factors currently allow very little scope for differentiation. With price becoming less of a factor in differentiation, machine and device manufacturers look to set-apart their product to achieve competitive advantage: commonly through product design, handling and user interface. In addition, “secondary features” beyond the actual functionality are gaining importance. It is the secondary features that make it possible for the machine or device manufacturer to once again achieve functional differentiation and to take on a leading role in the market. Another advantage of focusing on secondary features is that competitors can only copy the concepts and knowhow by investing heavily, and even then, the copied ideas can only be applied in the newly developed products. With this in mind, drive technology can play an important role from early on in the development process. The drive technology, including the control system, has a decisive effect on the achievable flexibility, dynamics and energy efficiency.
The MAXPOS provides top of the line dynamics in the field of drive technology. It offers machine and device manufacturers, leaders in their fields, to set new benchmarks for performance and efficiency of their systems. The MAXPOS fulfills all preconditions for performing dynamic, precise and synchronous mechanical movements driven by brush-type or brushless motors.
