Maxon’s DCX series is being expanded with two new DC motors. The GPX 22 gearhead is now also available in a version with reduced noise level and with ceramic axes.
In addition to the Maxon DCX 10L, a shorter version is now also available, the DCX 10S. Like all motors in the DCX series, this brushed DC motor excels through high power density and low vibration. The DCX 10S exceeds the 1mNm threshold during continuous use. With its mechanical output power of up to 1.4 W in a 10mm diameter, it is a real powerhouse. Regardless of whether this electric motor is equipped with sintered bearings or ball bearings, the DCX 10S works at approximately 35dBA.
The DCX 22L is the new longer version of the DCX 22S. This brushed DC motor, with a diameter of 22mm, even outperforms the existing Maxon RE 25. With the DCX 22L the same power is achieved, yet with 30 per cent less volume and weight.
Maxon’s GPX gearhead series is also being expanded with two new variants. The GPX 22C is an optimised version of the GPX 22. The improved performance data and life span were achieved by using ceramic axes. Although the same in size, it provides approximately 20 per cent higher torques. Another new member in the GPX family is the low-noise version of the GPX 22. The GPX 22LN has special plastic planet gears in the input stage that reduce operating noise, which mainly occurs in the input stage, by about 5dBA.
All configurable DC motors, gearheads and sensors of the Maxon DCX programme can be ordered online, and will be shipped after only 11 working days. Detailed product data can be viewed online immediately, and 3D data for the configuration is available for downloading. Discover more at dcx.maxonmotor.com.
