Product Details Supplier Info More products

Faulhaber has expanded its encoder product line with the addition of its PA2-50 and PA2-100, distributed in the UK and Ireland by EMS.

Faulhaber now provides high-resolution, low-current-draw optical encoders in diameters from 6mm.

The company offers 50 lines per revolution into a 6mm-diameter package and 100 lines per revolution into an 8-12mm diameter package.

A custom-designed codewheel maximises the reflected light increasing the system’s efficiency and signal reliability.

Applications requiring miniature motors with precision encoders will benefit from the use of the small integrated optical encoder, delivering consistent, accurate, and high-resolution results.

Complementing the Faulhaber range of 6mm-plus DC micromotors, the PA2-xx optical technology delivers 50-100 lines per revolution before quadrature.

Operating between 2.7VDC to 3.3VDC, low-voltage battery applications continue running for longer with higher resolution and more robust feedback signal reliability.

Improved battery life comes from a low-inertia codewheel and a battery-friendly current draw of 8-8.5mA.

EMS (Electro Mechanical Systems)

EMS was founded in mid-1985 and quickly established itself as the leading supplier of high-quality precision small DC motors and linear actuators. We are sole UK distributors for the whole Faulhaber Group, including Minimotor, Precistep, MPS and Piezomotor; manufacturers and suppliers of precision micro-drives, including DC motors; brushless motors; stepper motors; linear motors and associated gearheads and encoders.

Complementary products include iron-core DC motors from KAG, stepper motors and brushed DC motors from Nidec Servo and brushed and brushless gear motors from Nidec Motors & Actuators. In addition we distribute high quality linear actuators and telescopic columns from SKF and Mingardi, used extensively in medical; healthcare; agriculture; building automation and many other industries.

With sustained growth we looked to diversify our product offering and in 1990 established our own manufacturing facility. Growth has been maintained with repeated expansion culminating in the acquisition of an eighth unit in 2010 resulting in an overall floor area to 2,200m². We have a large capacity machine shop equipped with the latest CNC machine tools and a dedicated gear cutting suite, as well as substantial assembly area. EMS offers design engineers a complete service; our scope of supply stretches from the supply of proprietary motors, gearheads, encoders and actuation devices, right the way through to added value in the way of pinions and wiring looms, to bespoke design and manufacture of complete drive mechanisms and actuation systems to meet your exact applications needs.

Located across two sites, our Head office, design and manufacturing is based in Poole, Dorset and sales, order processing, administration and warehousing located in Aldermaston, Berkshire.

Our commitment to quality and service remains as strong as ever and is reflected in our management system and strong emphasis on continuous improvement, resulting in our accreditation to EN ISO9001:2008 at both sites.
