Integrated in the powerful brushless motors of the FAULHABER 22xx…BX4 family, the new Integrated Motion Controller 22xx…BX4 IMC, impresses users with its extensive range of functions and outstanding performance. Extension in length compared to the motor alone is 18mm only including a full featured servo controller and a 12 bit encoder. To top this, the full performance of the motors can be used in all different executions.

The version with RS232 interface is ideal for integration both from a PC or via an embedded master. The CANopen version is the perfect match for industrial automation networks. Being fully compliant with the CiA 402 servo drive standard allows direct support from typical PLCs. But even using the RS232 version several drives can be controlled using a single port of the master. Typical tasks like homing a drive can directly be executed by the integrated Motion Controller using its local digital and analog I/Os.

Alternatively, both versions can also be operated without a master in “stand-alone” mode. Its digital and analog I/Os can then be used very flexible for local control tasks or for discrete set-point and actual values.
Of course the compact 22xx…BX4 IMC can be combined with many products from the FAULHABER product range such as the compact GPT gearheads and the new FAULHABER 22L linear actuators.

Efficient and highly dynamic
The built-in current control automatically provides protection against overloading and there is also a diagnostic function. Supported are torque, velocity or position control according to the servo-drive standard. These features are complemented by low EMC emissions and the obligatory CE label.

The brushless motors with the new Integrated Motion Controller 22xx…BX4 IMC are available in two lengths, having first-class volume-to-performance ratio as well as highly dynamic control characteristics. They are suitable for a wide range of market segments such as medical and laboratory technology, automation technology, robotics or special industrial machinery.

Compact complete solution in proven quality
The diameter-conform design provides users with a system solution that minimizes space and resources as well as wiring requirements. Simply connect to the application and get started. Furthermore, the free Motion Manager 7.1 software from FAULHABER likely is the best in class tool for easy configuration and system integration. The user interface enables easy system setup and provides access to the extended diagnostic functions. To allow for a quick start, programming adapters for RS232, CANopen and USB are available as accessories.

Company box: The drive experts from Schönaich
FAULHABER is specialized in the development, production and deployment of high-precision miniaturized and miniature drive systems, servo components and drive electronics with up to 200 watts of output power. This includes putting into effect customer-specific packaged solutions as well as an extensive range of standard products, such as Brushless Motors, DC-Micromotors, Encoders and Motion Controllers. The FAULHABER trademark is recognised worldwide as a symbol of high quality and reliability in complex and demanding application areas, such as medical technology, factory automation, precision optics, telecommunications, aviation and aerospace, and robotics. From the powerful DC-motor with a continuous torque of 200 mNm to the filigree micro drive with an outer diameter of 1.9 mm, the FAULHABER standard range can be combined in more than 25 million different ways to create the optimum drive system for a particular application. At the same time, this technological construction kit is the basis for modifications which allow to configure special versions to meet the specific needs of customers.
