FAULHABER Announces Drive Selection Tool for Calculating Drive Systems Online

Calculate drive systems online quickly and easily

The FAULHABER Drive Selection Tool is a solution for developers and application engineers as it is able to determine the FAULHABER drive system required for certain projects pertaining to micro drive systems.

Speed and torque are two parameters used to determine the appropriate solution, then a list with the most important parameters shows the choices calculated. To further reduce choices, you can use a filter until the most suitable drive solutions are found. Next is the comparison function for up to three variants where the comprehensive product data is presented in a table.

If a certain motor series or special series of a motor/gearhead combination are already relevant, this can be selected in advance and the solution calculated accordingly in connection with the required performance. The FAULHABER Drive Selection Tool also takes the changes to the electrical characteristics caused by the heating of the motor into consideration with the thermal ("warm") calculation.

Once you have found the systems that meet your requirements, you can inquire about them directly at FAULHABER using the specially set up function

The FAULHABER Drive selection Tool is being developed with additional drive types, products, and functions. Making it possible to determine suitable drive systems for your planned applications at early stages of development in the future.
