Motor controllers (Slave) EPOS − Current, speed, and/or position controllers (slave) with CANopen or EtherCAT communi- cation. − Positioning with motion profile, Homing − Cyclic Synchronous operating modes (CST, CSV, CSP) ESCON Current and/or speed controllers (slaves) with I/O communication. (ESCON2 also with CANopen)

Communication Digital and analog I/O

CANopen For time-critical communication of up to 6 commands per ms. Suitable for many applica- tions that do not have extremely high require- ments in terms of speed and the number of slaves or axes. EtherCAT For top performance, with very fast data ex- change between many slaves, even over long distances.

For simple commands such as Specifying analog set values Activation Stop Reversal of direction of rotation RS232 and USB For non-time-critical communication between the master and slaves. Typically up to several tens of milliseconds per command, and not in real time.
