New 52mm Brushless DC (BLDC) motor design

Maxon motors new optimisation of the High Torque 52mm brushless motor gives even greater performance.

Maxon EC-i 52mm BLDC Servo Motor

Maxon EC-i 52mm BLDC Servo Motor

The EC-i 52mm brushless DC motor from maxon has had the iron-wound internal rotor motor redesigned from 7 pole pairs to 8 pole pairs. This significantly reduces the vibration and noise output of the DC motor. Available in three voltage outputs, 18, 24 and 48V the 52mm 180 W brushless DC motors produce up to 6,000 rpm.

With a correspondingly optimised magnet ring, the brushless EC-i motors with iron windings offer a very high torque density and a low cogging torque. The multi-pole internal rotor is extremely dynamic. It has a solid design, with a welded stainless steel flange and housing, making this brushless DC motor suitable for a wide range of applications such as rotary actuators, valves, robotic joints and process control.

The depths of the ocean: Technology for uncharted worlds

Learn more in driven, the maxon motor magazine

We know more about the surface of the moon than the depths of the ocean. That’s no surprise given the conditions there. And yet, an ever increasing number of sophisticated vehicles are making their way down to the ocean floor. driven, the maxon motor magazine, also goes on a dive and brings back surprising facts and stories.

Sophisticated robotic vehicles, autonomous or controlled via cables, are exploring the world underwater in search of scientific data, natural resources, or sunken shipwrecks. The technologies used must be able to resist aggressive salt water and huge ambient pressures. Learn more about how such systems are tested and where they are used: in the latest issue of driven – the maxon motor magazine.

In the world of drives, the motor often takes center stage. However, a powerful motor controller is just as important. Our expert explains what capabilities a motor controller needs and what solutions maxon has to offer. We will also discuss a key question: DC or BLDC motors? Last not least, driven is looking at the latest developments in the field of exoskeletons that allow people with mobility impairments to walk again.

maxon’s New BLDC Sterilizable Gearmotor EC 19 and GP 19M

High power up to 120 W, speeds up to 100,000 rpm, sterilizable 1000 times.

Maxon EC19 and GP19M Sterilizable Motor

Maxon EC19 and GP19M Sterilizable Motor

With its modular construction, this new brushless DC motor is available in three performance classes: the cost-optimized EC 19 at 60 Watt, the strong and high-speed EC 19 at 120 Watt and the sterilizable high-end version EC 19 at 120 Watt. The internals of the drives are responsible for their individual characteristics:

  • The EC 19 at 60 W is equipped with a magnetic circuit that is designed for speeds of up to 80,000 rpm. The maximum continuous torque is 12 mNm and the motor contains no Hall sensors.
  • The EC 19 at 120 W has been designed for speeds of up to 100,000 rpm and delivers a high continuous torque of 24 mNm. Versions with and without Hall sensors are available.
  • The EC 19 Sterilizable at 120 W may be sterilized in an autoclave 1000 times. With a maximum permissible speed of 100,000 rpm and 24 mNm continuous torque, this drive also withstands high temperatures and harsh steam cycles. This is achieved through careful selection of materials and through protection of the components such as in the hermetically sealed rotor magnet.

With maxon motor’s winding technology, it is possible to offer various voltage versions. The stator has been designed without slots. Therefore, no cogging torque occurs resulting in excellent control properties and extraordinarily smooth running. Together with an optimally balanced rotor, low-noise and low-vibration operation is easily achieved.

maxon’s new sterilizable planetary gearhead, the GP 19 M is ideal for applications requiring very high speeds – input speeds of up to 40,000 rpm. To accommodate such high speeds, the toothing and materials have been especially designed to minimize friction. A key demand placed on the material is 1000 sterilization cycles. Worth noting is the no-need to disassemble the motor for the sterilization process.   The new 19 mm servo motors are particularly suitable for surgical and dental devices, such as arthroscopic shavers and bone drills. There is also a focus on respirators and CAD/CAM spindle drives.

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…
