Highly Dynamic DC Brushless Servo Motor – maxon’s EC-i40

Compact And Powerful

In automation and robotics, many applications are characterized by high energy and high torque at the same time.  Spatial restrictions also mean that drives must be short, have a long service life and be maintenance-free.  The newly redesigned EC-i motors from maxon motors offer solutions that fit these requirements perfectly.

These brushless DC motors have several key advantages: low inertia, minimal detent, robust bearings and compact construction.  The use of high-powered permanent magnets ensures high power density, providing great speed stability under load.

These motors are available in 40 mm diameter and in two lengths, namely 26 mm (50 Watt) and 36 mm (70 Watt).  The modular system with gearheads, encoders and controllers from the maxon delivery program offers a large number of possible combinations.

EC-i motors are ideally suited for applications that require maximum drive in a minimum space.  Typical areas of application are robotics, industrial automation and security technology.

This 480 W motor can withstand 200 °C, 1000 G, -5000 m and 1700 bar

maxon's EC-4pole 32 HD

maxon’s EC-4pole 32 HD

The Heavy Duty Motor EC 22 HD, innovation of the year in 2010, has now been joined by a larger and more powerful version. The new, electronically commutated EC-4pole 32 HD motor has all the features of the award-winning 22 mm motor.  It is designed for extremely rough operating conditions, particularly applications in deep drilling.

Deep drilling technology (called “downhole drilling” in the field of oil and gas exploration) makes it possible to recover oil and gas from depths of more than 2500 m. By combining deep drilling with directional drilling (dynamic position alignment of a bore in the earth), previously unreachable oil reserves are being opened up, with drilling depths of approx. 5000 m and drill lengths of up to 11000 m.  The development of specialized electronics and drives has made it possible to better monitor and control many functions across the entire drilling process.  For instance, it is now possible to dynamically measure and adjust the position of the drill head during the drilling process.  Diverse deep drilling tools also use hydraulic valves or flaps that are operated by electromechanical drives.  The temperatures and pressures at these depths, combined with the strong vibrations that occur during the drilling work, present unique challenges for the use of electronic drives.

The different versions of the EC-4pole 32 HD are designed for operation in air or in oil (flooded in hydraulic oil).  The power rating depends on the surrounding medium and amounts to 220 W in air and, due to the much higher heat flow, 480 W in oil.  They are designed for ambient temperatures of more than 200 °C and atmospheric pressures of up to 1700 bar.  The Ø 32 mm motors must also be able to withstand vibrations of up to 25 grms as well as impacts of up to 1000 G (1000 times the acceleration due to gravity at the earth’s surface).  As an example, a Formula 1 vehicle is exposed to approximately 2 G and fighter jets are exposed to approxi-mately 13 G.  The motors feature high efficiency (up to 89% in air, more than 80% in oil), making them ideal for use in battery-operated applications.  With their detent-free running properties, they have excellent control characteristics and are suitable for high-precision positioning tasks in outer space, even at low speeds.

The EC-4pole 32 HD is ideal for use in environments with extreme temperatures, subject to high vibration, or under ultra-high vacuum.  This means the motors can also be used in aerospace applications, e.g. for gas turbine starters, for the generators of jet engines, for regulating combustion engines, or for exploration robots.  For the use of the motor in conjunction with a gearhead, maxon offers the GP 32 HD, a powerful and robust planetary gearhead.

Compact Linear Encoders from MicroE Systems

MicroE Systems introduced the Mercury series of compact encoders to help equipment designers achieve smaller and faster motion systems.  Enabling many new applications, the Compact Encoders series has grown to 12 models due to an expanding range of applications requiring more resolution, speed, and even smaller sensors.  Motion control engineers around the world specify Mercury and ChipEncoder when their linear or rotary motion control applications demand high performance from the smallest possible sensor.  Comprehensive testing and manufacturing to ISO9001:2008 quality standards ensure long-term reliability. Models are fully RoHS and CE compliant.

TBW Series Iron Core Linear Motor from Tecnotion

The TBW series is the water cooled variant of the TB series.  It features a fully integrated, highly efficient cooling system which enables the TBW to reach even higher continuous forces than the standard version and sustain extreme accelerations while maintaining its submicron position accuracy.  Since heat is not dissipated into the machine’s construction, it is especially suited for applications where thermal management is an issue.

Tecnotion TBW Linear Motor

Tecnotion TBW Linear Motor

This type of motor has a low magnetic resistance. The ironcore and the magnet closing plate are excellent flux conductors, so only the magnets and a single airgap contribute to the resistance in the circuit.  Due to this low resistance, the ironcore motor’s operation involves a strong flux, yielding high forces and excellent efficiency.  That makes this type a real workhorse with the following main features:

  • high peak force density
  • high continuous force density
  • relatively low heat dissipation
