Energy efficiency in microdrives, practical aspects

White Paper by Jan Braun, maxon motor ag, published January 2014

Low energy consumption.  Heat.  Power density. For microdrives in particular, these factors play an important role when energy-efficient operation is the goal.

Energy efficiency is an important factor not only in automotive applications, but also for many smaller sized motors.  Typical applications include battery-powered devices as well as aerospace applications.  The following are only a few examples: laser leveling devices, motorized golf caddies, medical power tools, insulin pumps, robots, packaging machines, and fuel cell powered vehicles.

With all these applications, it is critical to use available power as efficiently as possible.  This also means that only a minimal amount of power should be lost as heat.  The rise in temperature should be kept to a minimum…
