Compact DC-motor with high torque

The new 1016…SR series from FAULHABER expands the proven motor family to compact DC motors with precious-metal commutation. Together with the already introduced 0816…SR and 1024…SR series, these drives, combinable with suitable FAULHABER drives and encoders, are ideally suited for applications where maximum power is required in the most compact spaces.

The new 1016…SR motor series reaches a continuous torque of 0.92 mNm at a length of only 16 mm and a diameter of 10 mm. Its Δn/ΔM characteristic curve has an especially flat slope of 5953 rpm/mNm ,3 V and therefore makes it possible to have extremely soft transitions during a load change. Further strengths of the motor are its low power consumption, high energy-efficiency and minimal vibration and low audible noise. It is therefore suited as a drive for applications with small dimensions and very high requirements, such as for precision tools, optical devices or active prostheses.

The 1016…SR DC-micromotor with a wide range of gearheads can be combined like the other motors in the SR family. It reaches a torque of up to 300 mNm with the 12/4 planetary gearhead. For applications where high-precision positioning is essential, zero backlash spur gearheads are available as a compact alternative. With these, undesirable play can be reduced or eliminated. Optical and magnetic encoders with a resolution of up to 256 pulses per motor shaft revolutions make highly precise control of the drive possible. In addition, it can be combined with numerous controllers, from the miniaturised SC 1801 speed controller up to the MC 3002 motion controller for a complete solution.
