MICROMO Launches the FAULHABER FDM0620 Series

Setting New Standards for Stepper Motors

With the new FDM0620 series, MICROMO presents a high performance FAULHABER stepper motor with minimal size. Setting new standards for compact drive systems, all components (including connections) are in a housing that measures just 9.7 mm in length and 6 mm in diameter. With this combination of minimal space requirements and maximum power, reliability and production quality, the FAULHABER Group continues its success story in the field of micro motors and expands its family of stepper motors in the 6 to 22 mm diameter range.

With a holding torque rating of 0.25 mNm and a dynamic torque of up to 0.2 mNm, these stepper motors are a great fit for applications in which high power is required in a small space. Portable devices are an excellent example. The open-loop operation enables fast and simple implementation, and the holding torque rating and the precise angular accuracy make this product the ideal solution for applications with high requirements on angular and linear positioning. Applications in optics, photonics and medical technology are just a few considerations.

The innovative and patented flex PCB system is suitable both for LIF plugs with grid dimensions of 0.5 and 1.0 mm as well as for wiring via lead wires. A wide selection of metric lead screws for linear movements as well as a planetary gearheads with various reduction ratios round out the configuration options of the FDM0620 series.

In addition, other modifications are available that allow the motors to withstand special mechanical loads or environmental influences (e.g., low temperatures or vacuum). This makes the FDM0620 series a flexible solution for a wide range of application areas.

• Dynamic torque to 0.2 mNm

• Speed to 20,000 rpm

• Operating temperature range: -35 to +70°C (in the standard version)

• Long service life

• Can be combined perfectly with gearheads or lead screws

• Ideal for positioning tasks

ST Robotics - K11R robot controller now available for your own robot!

ST Robotics - K11R robot controller now available for your own robot!

St Robotics is making the K11R robot controller available for any robot that uses stepping motors including the IGUS range. Providing you use low inductance motors the K11R will provide surprising power and speed from it's 55v DC supply and Gecko micro-stepping drives controlled by a fast DSP and micro-controller. The software is RoboForth II V17 embedded in the controller which together with the PC project supervisor gets your robot going within minutes. It is a text based conversational language that is so easy to use yet permits programs of great complexity when required. The kinematics are easily tailored to any size of robot and any number of axes from 3 to 6. The controller will also provide easy calibration to sensors and also reads back and compares encoders if you fit them. Speed, acceleration and rate of acceleration (3rd order) are all programmable as is emergency stop and many other features. Your positional data and programs may be saved on your PC and also in the controller's flash memory. The K11R will also control external devices such as pneumatic gripper, vacuum pickup, air cylinders and communicate with a PLC. Pricing starts at $2500. Contact ST at sales@strobotics.com
