I just came into possession of a number (20+) of these today. The stamp on the motor is
FAULHABER MOTOREN 2230.G0003 3501-0009-01 REV D. See 2nd picture.
I am having a tough time finding a datasheet on this motor so I do not know what voltage it needs, how the encoder works, etc. The connector is 7 position with one position filled for idiot proofing I suspect. It's 2,space,4. I assume the grouped 2 conductors are the power and ground, and the grouped 4 conductors are for the encoder.
The motor has a gear on the shaft as well. I am researching how I can find the pitch of the gear.
These were used in a security camera tilt and pan system. The units have two heavily populated boards, a camera, lots of hardware, power converter, and two of these motors. Of course, I am harvesting what I can. Since I am playing with robotics with MCU control, these motors look like they will be a big help to that end.
Any suggestions or knowledge would be greatly appreciated. Nudge to Mr. Chandler because I know what a surplus guru you are.
The boards that support these motors are huge. I guess I can trace the connectors and figure out what they do. I will be looking for a controller for these motors also. I have another smaller version of these motors that I salvaged as well, and will post that in this thread also. Faulhaber is suppose to be really good brand. I am excited about what I salvaged here.
I also have 15 analog camera modules I salvaged as well. No idea what to do with them or how to use them. They might good for simple image processing with a RPi Zero or STM32F103C8T6 though. Just have to digitize the analog signal. Can't be too hard now with what is out there. Something low resolution and pixelated like the 1973 WestWorld ... what the gunslinger saw.
It's been decades since I researched this... Analog to Digital conversion and devices that support it. Should be something cheap available now that can do that with a standard older composite video signal.
