Powerful and extremely miniaturised
With the new MC3001 motion controllers, available as MC 3001 B (board-to-board connectors) or MC3001P (28-pin plug connector), FAULHABER completes the MC V3.0 generation of controllers for smaller motor series. The controllers are extremely miniaturised and, with 1.4 amperes in continuous operation and up to 5 amperes peak current, are very powerful. They are designed as slaves for control and positioning tasks of DC-micromotors, linear DC servomotors or brushless DC-motors.
The new MC 3001 are unhoused versions of the FAULHABER motion controllers and, by means of the integrated output stage with optimized current measurement, can control DC-micromotors, linear DC-servomotors or brushless DC-motors from the FAULHABER product line from 6 to 30 millimeters. They are configured here via the FAULHABER Motion Manager software V6 (version 6.8 and higher). The very good EMC behaviour of the new motion controllers has been certified by external laboratories.
Miniaturisation and dynamics
With an overall height from 2.6 millimeters and a format from 16×27 millimeters, the new motion controllers are extremely miniaturised. They feature very high control dynamics and can be operated with 1.4 amperes in continuous operation and with up to 5 amperes peak current. With the new variants, FAULHABER has completed its motion controller portfolio for smaller drives.
In spite of their extremely compact design, the just thumb-sized controllers feature the same functionality as well as the same interfaces (RS232 and CANopen) and encoder interfaces as the other more powerful products of the MC V3.0 generation. As an intelligent driver module, they are especially well suited for installation in customer-specific applications. The full thermal protection of the motors is ensured with the integrated thermal models and by means of the high PWM frequency.
