maxon motor is launching new high-speed motors that are configurable online. The new ECX brushless motors are quiet and feature very high efficiency. These brushless drives are suitable for use in hand-held surgical tools and industrial spindles.
With a few clicks of your mouse you can configure your drive online and place your order. With maxon motor’s configurator, it is easy to put together a customised DC motor – including gearhead, encoder and controller, to your specifications. Now, in addition to the brushed motors, you can also configure these three new high speed brushless micro motors.
The ECX motors are available with diameters of 8, 16 and 19mm achieving speeds of up to 120,000 rpm. They run very smoothly and are highly efficient. They are available with different power stages and in standard or sterilisable versions (up to 2000 autoclave cycles).
All three high-speed motors are now available in maxon’s online shop, where customising the drives is easy. This means that customers can fit the drives with specific mechanical and electrical components specific to their application needs. For example, with the ECX 8mm, the GPX planetary gearheads and ENX 8 encoders are available. It is also possible to customise the shaft lengths, winding types, ball bearings and much more.
Lean, automated processes ensure that all configurable drives are ready for shipment within 11 working days.
maxon motor is working on expanding the X drives program and in the Spring of 2016 more options will be added. The new expansion will include the brushless ECX 22 DC motor – available with two power stage options and as a sterilisable version.
