When it comes to powerful movements, maxon delivers with its EC-i 40 High Torque series of DC motors.  The Swiss drive specialist presents three powerful iron-core internal rotor drives.  The drives have a diameter of 40 mm and are equipped with an innovative rotor.  They feature high dynamics, a low cogging torque, and extremely high output torque.  The strongest motor in this series offers a maximum nominal torque of 234 mNm and is 56 millimeters in length.  It exceeds the performance of its precursor model by up to 70 percent.

Especially suitable for robotics

The three new brushless DC motors are cost-effective and ideally suited for applications in robotics, prosthetics, and industrial automation.  The compact design offers a great solution in applications with extreme space constraints.  When needed, the EC-i 40 High Torque motors can be combined with maxon gearheads, servo controllers, or position controllers.  The EC-i 40 series is easily configured and available in our online shop. Shop.maxonmotor.com

Live Webinar: DC Motor Types and Usage in Typical Applications

February 03, 2015  11:00am EST

This webinar gives you guidelines for selecting the perfect DC motor type for your application.  For example, which motor type is used in the climate control system of the Boeing Dreamliner, and for what reasons?

  • Is a brushed or a brushless design more adapted?
  • Does a flat pancake type motor fit better or should it be an elongated cylindrical one?
  • Are motors with a slotted iron core winding design the right choice, or should it be a motor with a slotless winding?

For motor selection, it is important to know the particular requirements of each application.

  • How large are torque and speed?  Are there any gears involved?
  • How is the motor operated and controlled?  What is the required precision of control?
  • What are the restrictions on size and weight?
  • How about special ambient conditions such as temperature and pressure?

Before answering these questions, the webinar starts with having a look at the properties of all kind of small DC motors with permanent magnets.

  • Which motor designs are adapted for high speed or high torque?
  • How to select motors according to torque and speed requirements
  • What are the particular advantages of brushed or brushless motors?
  • How does a slotted or slotless winding design influence motor performance?
  • What is the role of gears?

The webinar illustrates the findings on a multitude of typical application examples.

Applimotion’s LARC Motors for Large Diameter Direct Drive projects

Applimotion routinely scales its LARC motors (Linear Arc) for large diameter applications greater than 1 meter diameter. The modular nature of these motors allows them to integrate with large assemblies for scanning, imaging, and metrology applications where size requirements take priority over high torque requirements.

LARC motors come in modular pieces and will bolt into any large diameter servo motor application. The motors operate from standard brushless motor amplifiers from 24 to 300 volts. They work nicely with encoders, resolvers, or the recently introduce magnetic encoders for direct drive applications.

The LARC motors also offer very low profile design to fit into tight spaces where traditional motors have limitations. Applimotion also offers hermetically sealed magnet tracks and coil assemblies for vacuum or special environments.

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.
