maxon is launching several high-torque product innovations this Spring. These include higher performance flat motors, drives with higher torque outputs, and new additions to the GPX gearbox family.
The new maxon EC-i 52 Power up brushless motor meets customer demands for industrial applications with higher torque. The new version of the EC-i 52 now achieves a torque of up to 1Nm. This increase in performance is due to improved cooling, the ventilated version of the EC-i 52 Power up reaches 420 watts of nominal power.
Another addition to the EC-i family includes the EC-i 40 High Torque 130 watt brushless motor. This drive was originally developed for power tool applications. To meet the high demand for higher-torque drives, maxon is mass producing the EC-i motor with an additional 34.8mm in length. The versions with a fan offer up to 100 per cent more power.
If required, the EC-i drives may be combined with encoders, gearheads, and a maxon controller.
Using new processes, maxon has developed a rotor for flat motors whose housing is produced by cold forming. The result is the more powerful and less expensive EC 45 flat Power up motor; it is available in two standard versions, as well as in two new versions with either an open rotor or a fan.
Brand new additions to the market are the brushless maxon ECX TORQUE motors, which have a diameter of 22mm and are available in three different lengths. With their iron core and multi-pole rotor design, these motors achieve a very high torque density at moderate speeds, while their low time constant makes them very dynamic. The ECX TORQUE motors are available as configurable units ready for shipment in 11 working days.
There is a new addition to the GPX gearhead family. In addition to the existing diameters of 22mm and 32mm, maxon is launching the larger GPX 42 UP gearhead version. The GPX UP "Ultra Performanc" gearheads are very efficient.
