Less than 7 millimetres for fully integrated speed controller

First Quarter 2021 Electrical switching & drive systems & components

The BXT motor family, consisting of brushless DC servomotors with an especially short design, was expanded in all sizes with a diameter-compliant, integrated speed controller.

With an additional attachment length of just 6,2 mm, the motor/speed controller combinations are available with the same installation space as the products with the IEF3-4096 (L) integrated encoder. Through the use of synergy effects with the encoder variants, the speed controller is likewise fully integrated in the robust motor housing.

Based on the proven Faulhaber SC technology, the motors can be put into operation quickly, easily and comfortably with the familiar Motion Manager (from version 6.6). The speed controller is connected to the application with a 6-pole flat cable; suitable connectors are available as an option.

It can be combined with the 2214…BXT H, 3216…BXT H and 4221…BXT H housed BXT motors. Even with full integration, the robust speed controller guarantees the use of nearly the entire power and speed range of the corresponding base motors. A well-designed cooling concept minimises thermal losses here.

The combination of the BXT H motors with the integrated speed controller is the ideal solution if speeds need to be controlled precisely in the smallest of spaces and high torques are also required. Typical applications are pumps, handheld devices (e.g. for the tattoo industry), equipment manufacturing, and laboratory and industrial automation.
