Maxon Motor – EPOS2 Axis Interface Driver

Sisu Devices worked with maxon motor to provide a custom interface for their EPOS2 servo drives to National Instruments SoftMotion Module.

This solution was posted on the National Instruments Tools Network (NI SoftMotion Axis Interface for EPOS2 Positioning Controller – maxon motor) and provides engineers and LabVIEW programmers a quick way to make a motion control solution using small and powerful motors from maxon motor.

The hardware layer in this driver was written to interface with the NI 9853 C Series high-speed CAN module for use on CompactRIO. A flexible software architecture makes it possible to replace the hardware layer to be compatible with other NI or third-party CAN controllers.
