Brush Servo Motor vs. Brushless Servo Motor: which is better for my application?

By Warren Osak, CEO of Electromate

A common misconception is that a brushless servo motor is always going to be a superior solution to a brush servo motor.  In many industrial automation applications, this assumption can be furthest from the truth.  A comparison of the benefits and drawbacks of brush and brushless servo motors is described in this White Paper.

Do you know the difference between these 10 types of servomotors?

Servomotors are generally used as a high performance alternative to the stepper motor. Stepper motors have some inherent ability to control position, as they have built-in output steps. This often allows them to be used as an open-loop position control, without any feedback encoder, as their drive signal specifies the number of steps of movement to rotate. This lack of feedback though limits their performance, as the stepper motor can only drive a load that is well within its capacity, otherwise missed steps under load may lead to positioning errors. The encoder and controller of a servomotor are an additional cost, but they optimize the performance of the overall system (for all of speed, power and accuracy) relative to the capacity of the basic motor. With larger systems, where a powerful motor represents an increasing proportion of the system cost, servomotors have the advantage….

More versions, more power – The new DCX motors and GPX gearboxes from maxon motor

Now even stronger, more efficient and with yet more combination options.
There are new additions to the maxon family of X drive products.  Several long versions of brushed DC motors, with higher torques and more power, are being added to the product range, together with matching planetary gearheads.  Each of the 3-stage versions can now be combined with the next smaller motor.  This saves space, weight and costs.  For more information go to dcx.maxonmotor.com .
Maxon DCX Product Family

Maxon DCX Product Family

Two years ago, maxon motor introduced a new generation of brushed DC motors – the maxon X drives.  These are extremely powerful, easy to configure online, and ready for shipment within 11 days.  Now, four more motor sizes are being added to the existing portfolio.  The 14, 16, 22 and 26 mm diameter models are now each available in a long version (L), which offers higher continuous torque and higher continuous output power.

At the same time, maxon motor is introducing four new GPX planetary gearheads, in the sizes 14, 19, 26 and 37 mm, compatible to existing products in the program.  These gearheads are designed with scaled gear stages.  Each of the new 3-stage gearheads can be driven with the next smaller motor.  This brings many advantages, as the resulting drive system is smaller, lighter and more economical.
That’s not all, starting immediately, the existing GPX 16 and GPX 32 models are available in various versions and can be equipped with ceramic axles to reduce wear.  Customers looking for a particularly low-noise gearhead have the option of choosing plastic planetary gears.
maxon also expanded the encoder portfolio.  The new ENX 16 Easy absolute encoder is available as an SSI or BiSS-C version, according to the customer’s requirements.
All new products are available in the online shop starting immediately.  They can be easily configured together with the other maxon X drive products:  Customers select the desired motor, the matching winding, brushes and shaft length, as well as the gearhead and encoder.
The configured product is ready for shipment in 11 days or less.

The maxon X drives family of configurable products is growing

Like all motors in the DCX series, these brushed DC motors feature high power density and low vibration.  In addition to the technical highlights, the program’s appeal lies in the configuration options.  Motors, gearheads and encoders may be selected and ordered online.  After only 11 working days, even complex drive systems are ready to be shipped.  Detailed product data can be viewed online immediately, and 3D data for the configuration is available for downloading.  Discover more at dcx.maxonmotor.com

The center of the maxon motor is the unique ironless winding.  This motor concept has unique advantages, including low electromagnetic interference and a complete lack of magnetic cogging torque.  The efficiency is unrivaled by other motor systems.

The maxon X drives family is being expanded to include two additional motor sizes: 16 mm and 32 mm.  The new 16 mm DCX 16 S is available with precious metal and graphite brushes and can be combined with the new GPX 16 planetary gearhead in the customary modular system.  Combinations with ENX encoders round off the modular system for demanding control tasks.  The new DCX 32 L is also available with graphite brushes and can be combined with the GPX 32.  This 32 mm diameter DC motor is a powerhouse with excellent parameters that can easily hold up to the competition.  The high thermal resistance helps it achieve higher continuous power.

Three more versions are also being added to the GPX gearhead family.  The GPX 16 and GPX 32 gearheads are available with diameters matching those of the motors, in 1-stage and 2-stage versions.  The planetary gearheads have scaled gear stages.  That means the geometry has been optimized for the load in each stage.  With the compact design and the welded connections at the motors, the length may be kept to an absolute minimum.

The GP 16 A planetary gearhead, manufactured by maxon, has been part of the company’s product program for many years, with great success.  On the GPX 16, it was possible to install larger ball bearings.  This increases the maximum permissible radial load by several factors.  The maximum permitted input speed was also significantly increased to 14,000 rpm.

The GPX 32 planetary gearhead features higher input speeds of up to 7,000 rpm and higher continuous torques of up to 2.9 Nm. The previous values were 6,000 rpm and 2.25 Nm.

The 22 mm planetary gearhead is now also available as a low-backlash version, the GPX 22 LZ.  In total, there are now four different gearhead versions available: standard, ceramic, reduced noise level and reduced backlash.

NEW configurable DC motors and gearheads

maxon motor’s  DCX series is being expanded with two new DC motors.  The GPX 22 gearhead is now also available in a version with reduced noise level and with ceramic axes.

In addition to the maxon DCX 10L, a shorter version is now also available, the DCX 10S.  Like all motors in the DCX series, this brushed DC motor excels through high power density and low vibration.  The DCX 10S exceeds the 1 mNm threshold during continuous use.  With its mechanical output power of up to 1.4 W in a 10 mm diameter, it is a real powerhouse.  Regardless of whether this electric motor is equipped with sintered bearings or ball bearings, the DCX 10S features extremely quiet operation running below 35 dBA*.

The DCX 22L is the new longer version of the DCX 22S.  This brushed DC motor, with a diameter of 22 mm, even outperforms the existing maxon RE 25.  With the DCX 22L the same power is achieved, yet with 30% less volume and weight.  The GPX gearhead series is also being expanded with two new variants:

The GPX 22C is an optimized version of the GPX 22.  The improved performance data and life span were achieved by using ceramic axes.  Although the same in size, it provides approximately 20% higher torques. Another new member in the maxon GPX family is the low-noise version of the GPX 22.  The GPX 22LN has special plastic planet gears in the input stage that reduce operating noise, which mainly occurs in the input stage, by about 5 dBA*.

Ready in 11 days. All configurable DC motors, gearheads and sensors of the maxon DCX program can be ordered online.  After only 11 working days, the drive systems are ready to be shipped from Switzerland. Detailed product data can be viewed online immediately, and 3D data for the configuration is available for downloading.  Discover more at dcx.maxonmotor.com.
