BX4 Motors with Integrated Compact Electronics
Featured Product from FAULHABER MICROMO
MICROMO now offers twelve new 32mm Brushless DC-Servomotors from the FAULHABER Group. The features of the BX4 line are long operational lifetime, a high cogging-free output torque and no adhesive bonded joints. This makes them ideal for many applications like robotics, automation, medical, machinery, aerospace and aviation. The new BX4 series brushless motors are available in two lengths of 42 or 68 mm and in 12 or 24 V windings. The BX4 demonstrates excellent linearity with an impressive torque-to-volume ratio and provides a continuous output torque of 56 or 97 mNm.
Besides FAULHABER’s wide array of external control electronics, the BX4 series is now available with an integrated Speed Controller (SC) version, a typical +/- terminal (SCDC) version and an integrated Motion Controller (CS) version. All products with integrated electronics are equipped with current limiting capabilities (peak and continuous) to provide extra protection your motor and electronics. All BX4 models are reversible and a separate power supply is now available upon request.
The SCDC version of the BX4 has redefined simplicity. With only a dual terminal power supply connection on the back of the motor (typical +/- configuration), it can easily replace brushed type motors in applications demanding greater longevity. Furthermore, the SSDC version includes built-in reverse polarity protection.
The CS version, based on FAULHABER Motion Control Systems, has compact dimensions that benefit space constrained applications. It contains an RS232 serial interface and can be configured with FAULHABER’s downloadable Motion Manager software. The increased temperature range from -20 to +100 °C and the higher thermal limits allowing a continuous current of to 2.6A increase the versatility of the BX4 line (available with custom firmware upon request).
An integrated encoder, now offered in a robust housing, is available in four factory programmable resolutions from 32, 64, 128 to 256 pulses plus an index channel. A line driver version with differential signal output is now available upon request.
