FAULHABER is adding two new Speed Controllers to its
controller range. The PI Controller series is software-configurable – so no
need for trimmers or DIP switches – and can be operated with one and the same
controller, either as brushed direct current motors (DC) or electronically
commuted drives (BL), also with integrated Hall sensors. Depending on the
operating mode, the speed can be controlled to between 50 and 60,000 rpm.
Users can adapt the controller properties freely to suit
their purposes. The latest version 4.5 of the well-known “Motion
Manager” software from FAULHABER enables specific programming with the
familiar, easy-to-use tools. Power limits, control parameters, fixed speeds, encoder
resolution and set value definition can all be configured using the PWM signal,
with 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. The “plug and play”
version requires neither programming adapter nor Motion Manager. The new
controllers are available both in casing versions and board versions. What is
more, they are compact in design, so can be used for various applications
without extensive wiring.
