Integrated encoder for flat motors

The Faulhaber’s BXT motor family, comprising brushless DC-motors with especially short design, was expanded with the diameter-complaint IEF3-4096 magnetic encoder. With just 6.2 mm of additional length, the motor/encoder units also remain extremely short. In addition, the encoder is fully integrated in the robust motor housing. In this flat design, the IEF3-4096 offers three channels with index function and a high resolution of up to 4096 lines per revolution. Furthermore, a variant with line driver is available with the IEF3-4096 L. The encoder can be combined with the 2214…BXT H, 3216…BXT H and 4221…BXT H housed BXT motors.
The combination of the BXT motors with the IEF3-4096 encoder is the ideal solution if it is necessary to precisely position in a constrained space and high torques are also required. Typical applications are found in robotics, medical technology, laboratory automation and industrial automation. The encoder is connected with a ribbon cable; suitable connectors are available.
