In the area of controls added Faulhaber his product range with two new speed controllers. The software, ie without trimmer or DIP switch, parameterizable PI controller series makes it possible to operate with the same controller universal either brushed DC motors (DC) or electronically commutated drives (BL), also with integrated Hall sensors. The adjustable speed range is, depending on the operating mode, between 50 and 60.000 rpm.
The properties of the controller can be freely reprogrammed by the user for his own purposes. The current version of 4,5 Faulhaber software "Motion Manager" allows specific programming in the usual simple environment. Thus, current limitation, controller parameters, fixed speed, encoder resolution, setpoint input via PWM signal and the maximum speed can be set as variably as the operation of the DC and BL motors with or without sensor.
For applications that are not so demanding on customization, there are already factory-programmed controllers. As a "plug & play" version, they require neither programming adapter nor Motion Manager. The new controllers are available both in a housed version and in a printed circuit board design and can be used in many applications due to their compact design with low wiring costs.
