Configure high-speed drives from your sofaNever before has it been this simple to put together a customised, high-end drive – either at work or at home – with maxon motor’s online configurator. A variety of brushless, high-speed motors and gearheads are now available.

Sometimes you have to choose the right DC motor quickly – for example when constructing a prototype, or if a product is scheduled for a swift market launch. In cases like this, engineers resort to maxon motor’s online configurator. The platform has tens of thousands of drive options to choose from, all of which are available quickly and easily. Brushed and brushless DC motors with diameters of 8 to 35 millimeters form the basis of the offering, with maxon recently significantly expanding its range of ECX drives.

As a result, ECX SPEED drives are now available in a variety of sizes, both in the high-power or sterilisable versions and also with the option of ceramic bearings. Additionally on offer are suitable planetary gearheads (GPX SPEED) which, as a sealed design, tolerate 2000 autoclave cycles. The entire range of products available in the configurator can be found at

All of the drive’s interfaces can be adapted at will in the online configurator: shafts, flanges, electrical connections, etc. This gives users a whole new range of possibilities. Your drive – including gearheads and encoder – can be configured and ordered in only a few minutes. The electronic data goes directly to maxon motor’s production facilities, where the drives are put together in automated processes. Your order will leave our factory in Switzerland no later than 11 working days after it was placed.
