The most compact Motion Control System on the market

IMC miniature drives

Integrated in the powerful brushless motors of the FAULHABER 22xx…BX4 family, the new Integrated Motion Controller 22xx…BX4 IMC, impresses users with its extensive range of functions and outstanding performance. Extension in length compared to the motor alone is 18mm only including a full featured servo controller and a 12 bit encoder. To top this, the full performance of the motors can be used in all different executions.

The version with RS232 interface is ideal for integration both from a PC or via an embedded master. The CANopen version is the perfect match for industrial automation networks. Being fully compliant with the CiA 402 servo drive standard allows direct support from typical PLCs. But even using the RS232 version several drives can be controlled using a single port of the master. Typical tasks like homing a drive can directly be executed by the integrated Motion Controller using its local digital and analog I/Os.

Alternatively, both versions can also be operated without a master in “stand-alone” mode. Its digital and analog I/Os can then be used very flexible for local control tasks or for discrete set-point and actual values.

Of course the compact 22xx…BX4 IMC can be combined with many products from the FAULHABER product range such as the compact GPT gearheads and the new FAULHABER 22L linear actuators

Jednotky MC 3603 S

With the launch of the IEP3, FAULHABER expands its product line with an incremental encoder which, thanks to the latest chip technology, achieves a very high resolution and accuracy. With a diameter of just 8 mm, the IEP3 is very lightweight and compact yet still offers a resolution of up to 10,000 lines per revolution – made possible by the latest chip technology with high interpolation. In the standard version, the resolution is freely programmable from 1 – 4,096 lines per revolution. Moreover, the chip technology that is used ensures a high positional accuracy of typically 0.3 °m as well as a high repeatability of typically 0.05 °m thanks to accuracy compensation. 

The advantages at a glance: 

  • High resolution with up to 10,000 lines per revolution
  • Latest chip technology with accuracy compensation for high positional accuracy and repeatability
  • Very lightweight and compact
