Maxon Motor's EC motor range is now a comprehensive programme thanks to the addition of electronically commutated DC motors in 10 and 13mm diameters. As a result of this launch, Maxon Motor now has a complete EC motor range from diameters 6 to 60mm.
The application field for EC micromotors is growing, while the space available for them is decreasing. High-density performance and outstanding efficiency are extremely important, especially for motors less than 20mm in diameter. These are two criteria that the new EC motors meet.
The EC 10 has an output of 8W and reaches a maximum permissible speed of 80,000min-1. The EC 13 is available in two versions, a short one of 6W assigned power rating and a longer one of 12W. Both are designed for a maximum permissible speed of 50,000 min-1.
All motors are available with or without Hall sensors. Their tried and trusted flexprint connections provide for simple and secure connection to the Maxon speed controller, making dynamic speed control and positioning possible. The NdFeB magnetic material used for the rotor guarantees the highest torque in the minimum of space.
On the mechanical side, the preloaded ball bearings provide precision and a high load capacity. Planetary gearheads from maxon's modular system are available for lower-speed applications with correspondingly higher torques.
Maxon's new EC motors are used in applications that need to benefit from the motors' long service life, high speeds and lack of maintenance - such as medical technology, textile processing machinery, assembly machines and portable hand tools.
