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.
driven magazine reveals where they are commonly used.
Precision drive systems can be found in the home, in vehicles, and at work, making our lives simpler and safer. The current issue of driven, the maxon motor magazine, provides interesting insights into the world of drive technology. It also goes in search of an old friend.
Company to invest CHF 30 million at its headquarters
Swiss drive specialist maxon motor is expanding its headquarters in Switzerland. Construction of the new Innovation Center is due to start in February. The building is scheduled to be ready for use by summer 2018. At this location, the company will also develop and manufacture its smallest drives.
maxon motor enters a partnership with the Swiss Museum of Transport
Today the Swiss Museum of Transport is opening its new space exhibition to the public. Visitors can learn about the past and the future of space travel and walk through the landscape of our neighbor planet Mars. However, they are not alone in this scenery.
This fall, maxon motor is presenting additional brushless DC motors in its ECX series. They are fast, powerful, and can be configured on a computer. These motors are complemented with new modules for the compact EPOS4 positioning controller, which has a high power density and easy handling. Drive technology is becoming even better and more intuitive.
The new issue of driven, the maxon motor magazine, is out!
In medical technology, there are thousands of patent applications every year. New robots, measuring devices, and other tools minimize the risks of surgery. Some of the latest technologies are presented in driven, the maxon motor magazine.
Never before has it been this simple to put together a customized, high-end drive, at work or at home, using maxon motor's online configurator. A variety of brushless, high-speed motors and gearheads are now available.
Swiss motors are driving exoskeletons all over the world
At the first Cybathlon in Zürich, researchers are presenting the world's best exoskeletons – devices that enable paraplegics to walk again. Motors from Switzerland play a central part in this development.
