Besides Faulhaber’s wide array of external control electronics, the BX4 series is available with an integrated speed controller (SC) version, a typical +/- terminal (SCDC) version, and an integrated motion controller (CS) version. All products with integrated electronics are equipped with current limiting capabilities (peak and continuous) to provide extra protection for the motor and electronics. All BX4 models are reversible and a separate power supply is available upon request.
The SCDC version of the BX4 has redefined simplicity. With only a dual terminal power supply connection on the back of the motor (typical +/- configuration), it can easily replace brushed type motors in applications demanding greater longevity. Furthermore, the SSDC version includes built-in reverse polarity protection.
The CS version, based on Faulhaber motion control systems, has compact dimensions that benefit space constrained applications. It contains an RS232 serial interface and can be configured with Faulhaber’s downloadable Motion Manager software. The increased temperature range from -20 to +100°C and the higher thermal limits, allowing a continuous current of up to 2.6 A, increase the versatility of the BX4 line (available with custom firmware upon request).An integrated encoder, now offered in a robust housing, is available in four factory programmable resolutions from 32, 64, 128, to 256 pulses, plus an index channel. A line driver version with differential signal output is available upon request.
