Encoders

Voor positie- en toerentalregeling met een hogere resolutie biedt FAULHABER een breed aanbod aan encoders die gecombineerd kunnen worden met het complete portfolio aan borstelloze, DC- en stapmotoren van FAULHABER.

Magnetisch en optische 2- en 3-kanaals incrementele encoders met standaard kwadratuurresolutie van 16 tot 1024 impulsen per omwenteling of single-turn absolute encoders met een resolutie tot 10 000 stappen.

Encoders and sensors

FAULHABER Motors are offered in combination with sensors and encoders. An encoder is a sensor for angle measurement that is usually used for speed or position control.

Digital Hall

Digital Hall

The term sensor refers to digital or analog Hall sensor which, in the FAULHABER Brushless DC-Motors, are usually mounted directly on the motor circuit board. Digital Hall sensors are used primarily for the commutation of the Brushless DC-Motors and for simple speed control. Almost all FAULHABER Brushless DC-Motors are equipped standard with three integrated digital Hall sensors.

In addition, analog Hall sensors are generally available as an option.

Analog Hall

Analog Hall

Due to the higher resolution, the analog Hall sensors can also be used for precise speed or position control, making them an especially economical, lightweight and compact alternative to encoders. The option for analog Hall sensors can be found directly in the data sheets of the motors under “Controller combinations”. If this option is selected, no encoder is needed. The space and cost advantages make analog Hall sensors the preferred solution for most positioning applications with Brushless DC-Motors. When selecting this option, it is recommended that the sensors be operated with FAULHABER Controllers, which are perfectly designed for the analog Hall signals.
