Maxon Motor Australia has entered into a strategic partnership with Gurley Precision Instruments.
The partnership will extend Maxon Motor’s automation capability and DC motor position control systems with Gurley Absolute encoders.
Incorporating the encoders will enable dual absolute and incremental encoder positioning loops with the EPOS 2 controller.
The system uses the Gurley Absolute SSI encoders for positioning and the motor’s incremental encoder for speed control.
Assembling a positioning system in this way eliminates the need for expensive ‘zero backlash’ gearheads that often fail to meet this requirement.
