Intelligent motor

Faulhaber and Technosoft have produced a small intelligent motor for speed and position control with EtherCAT communication. The motor is based on the 32....BX4 Brushless DC 4-pole technology servomotors using the Faulhaber ironless stator, a dynamically balanced rotor, resulting in no cogging output.

The controller is of modular design and compact construction and incorporates the iPOS4808 controller, which utilises Technosoft MotionChip technology and offers 7 I/Os. The configuration, tuning and local programming of the iPOS drive can be done using Technosoft’s graphical platform EasyMotion Studio. The position sensor is absolute single-turn, providing 4096 counts per revolution for accurate speed and position control, down to 5 arc min.

The motor has a diameter of 32 mm, a maximum length of 92.8 mm, a maximum speed of 6000 rpm and a stall torque of 97 mNm. The controller is housed in an oblong which measures 46.5 x 67 x 26 mm. There are six families of Faulhaber gearheads that are available for fitting to the motor. The motor has been developed for medical analysis and dosing machines, pick and place and welding robots, instrumentation and optical equipment, unmanned military vehicles, and packaging, bottling and labelling machines.
