FAULHABER brings integrated encoder for flat motors to market

Less than seven millimetres for precisely fitting encoder

The BXT motor family, comprising brushless DC-motors with especially short design, was expanded with the diameter-complaint IEF3-4096 magnetic encoder. With just 6.2 mm of additional length, the motor/encoder units also remain extremely short. In addition, the encoder is fully integrated in the robust motor housing. In this flat design, the IEF3-4096 offers three channels with index function and a high resolution of up to 4096 lines per revolution. Furthermore, a variant with line driver is available with the IEF3-4096 L. The encoder can be combined with the 2214…BXT H, 3216…BXT H and 4221…BXT H housed BXT motors.

The combination of the BXT motors with the IEF3-4096 encoder is the ideal solution if it is necessary to precisely position in a constrained space and high torques are also required. Typical applications are found in robotics, medical technology, laboratory automation and industrial automation. The encoder is connected with a ribbon cable; suitable connectors are available.

The advantages at a glance:
• Short design, since fully integrated
• Index function and high resolution
• Line Driver available
• For precise positioning with high torque in constrained spaces

The FAULHABER Group offers the world's largest consolidated portfolio of miniature and micro drive system technologies available from one partner in the world today. The Group specializes in the design and manufacture of complex, high precision miniature and micro drive systems for challenging areas of application like medical devices, handling automation, telecommunications, and precision optics.

The FAULHABER brand name is known worldwide as a symbol of high quality, precision miniature drive systems, components and controls. With a technology focus on the self-supporting, skew-wound, ironless rotor, DC Motor and precision system components such as gearboxes, encoders, and motion controllers the brand name has been built around the highly competent design, manufacturing, and after sales service and support of the three founding members of the FAULHABER Group.
