Faulhaber is adding the software-configurable series SC 5004 and SC 5008 speed controllers to its PI range, available from EMS.

There is no need for trimmers or DIP switches and all models can be operated with the same controller, either as brushed direct-current motors (DC) or electronically commuted drives (BL), or with integrated Hall sensors.

Depending on the operating mode, the speed can be controlled to between 50 and 60,000rpm.

Users can adapt the controller properties freely to suit their purposes.

The controllers are available in casing and board versions, and are compact in design, so can be used for various applications without extensive wiring, according to the company.

Key specifications

  • Motion Manager version 4.5 enables specific programming with familiar tools
  • Power limits, control parameters, fixed speeds, encoder resolution and set value definition can all be configured using the PWM signal variable settings for the maximum speed and operation of the DC and BL motors with or without sensors
  • For applications where no adjustments are necessary, pre-programmed controllers are also available
  • Plug-and-play version requires no programming adapter nor Motion Manager

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.
