maxon's New Servo Motor Controller - The ESCON 70/10

High performance, easy to commission, outstanding motor control characteristics, and top performance.

maxon motor's new range of servo controllers continues to expand. Just like the existing motor control units in the range, the new maxon motor ESCON 70/10 possesses incredibly easy usability and peak control properties. The high power density 4-quadrant pulse width modulated (PWM) servo motor controller gives efficient control of permanent-magnet brushed DC motors (PMDC) and brushless DC motors (BLDC motors) using Hall sensors with a power rating to ~700 W.


The ESCON 70/10 servo motor controller features exceptional motor control qualities. Additionally it has very fast digital current control with a huge bandwidth for precise motor torque and current control. The speed behaviour is fluctuation-free and extremely dynamic with a motor speed range from 0 to 150,000 rpm. It has a broad range of functionality with completely configurable analogue and digital outputs and inputs. It can be used in numerous motion control operating conditions from current controller to speed controller in both open and closed loop. Being a compact servo motor controller it compliments maxon motors range of PMDC and BLDC motors giving dynamic motor drive systems which meet vigorous application requirements.
It is controlled with an analogue set value input that can be given from either an external source or using an internal potentiometer. Alternatively, the motor can be controlled via PWM input signal. It features direction oriented enabling if desired and the user can define the feedback mode using an encoder, tacho or hall sensors.

Designed specifically with easy startup and user-friendliness in mind. When connected to a PC via a USB port, the servo motor controller can easily be configured with the graphical user interface «ESCON Studio». A large variety of functions, software wizards, and a well-designed automatic procedure to fine-tune the controller come in handy during startup and configuration.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
