At the end of May 2014, the Rosetta space probe will swing into an orbit around the comet 67P/Churyumov‐Gerasimenko in order to, after more closely approaching it in August, map its surface and thus prepare for the landing of Philae. On 12th November, this ballistic lander, weighing 100 kg, touched down on the comet and began experiments intended to provide information about its composition. This lander has 14 FAULHABER drive systems which defied the harsh conditions of the 10 year long journey through the vacuum and incredibly low temperatures of space, in order to deliver valuable information on the creation and history of our solar system.
Brushless DC-Servomotor Series 3274...BP4 In the fight for high performance with minimum weight, FAULHABER with the development of its series 3274 BP4 has put a new champion in the ring. The brushless DC servomotor, measuring 32 mm in diameter and 74 mm in length, has a huge continuous torque of 165 mNm. Furthermore, it weighs in at just under 320 g, which is half that of conventional motors with comparable power.
