EPOS

Positioning made easy.

EPOS is a modular, digital positioning controller by maxon motor. It is suitable for permanent magnet-activated motors plus encoders with a range of 1 to 750 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.

The next generation of positioning controllers offers impressively superior dynamics and outstanding power density. The modular design additionally opens up a wide range of opportunities regarding communication and feedback encoders. For a quick overview of the entire EPOS4 family and to directly compare the different models, refer to our feature chart:
