Faulhaber has extended its BX4 range of four-pole brushless DC servomotors with the launch of the series 2232/2250…BX4 CSD/CCD, a compact drive with an integrated motion controller. The new series — available in the UK from Electro Mechanical Systems (EMS) — is suitable for demanding applications including robotics, automation, medical devices and aerospace. 

This new series is claimed to combine all the advantages of the BX4 four-pole brushless technology with a single-axis motion controller. Benefits include high reliability, high torque, compact slot-less design with no cogging torque and robust construction without the use of adhesives.

The drives are based on the flexible and easy-to-use Faulhaber motion control platform. The compact motion controller, which fits within the diameter of the motor, combined with the motor and a full range of gearhead combinations provides a versatile modular platform for a variety of applications.

Key features and specifications

  • The drives are available with an RS-232 serial or CAN interface.
  • Configuring the drives is simple using the free Faulhaber Motion Manager 4.4 software.
  • The drives have a wide operational temperature range from -25°C to +85°C and provide a continuous current up to 0.69A with a peak of up to 3A.
  • The speed can be precisely controlled from 5rev/min up to 8,000rev/min.
  • Custom firmware and software are available on request.
  • All of the drives have factory-preset current limits to protect the motor and electronics during normal operation.
  • Upon request, the drives can be supplied with separate motor and electronics voltage supply connections.
  • The new drives are available in two motor lengths of 32mm and 50mm with a supply voltage of 24VDC.

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.
