Maxon showcases five powerful compact drives at SPS 2022

Maxon is launching five new products at the SPS trade fair in Nuremberg. All products are designed with particularly efficient use of resources and compactness in mind.

They include the ECX SPEED 8 motors with pin connection, the integrated ENX 32 MILE encoder for drives from the ECX flat motor series with 32 mm diameter, as well as the powerful IDX 56 and 70 industrial drives. Now there are even more technical solutions available for extremely compact and tight spaces.

The ECX SPEED 8 motors now also come with pin connection for a space-saving design. The new connection variant can now be configured in the online shop for all ECX SPEED 8 motors. Pin connections are made for installation of drives in compact devices or systems where the available space is limited, or easy cleaning is required. Typically, the pin variant is used in medical technology, such as in surgical robots, hand prosthetics, and implants.

With the new ENX 32 MILE encoder, Maxon is expanding the ECX FLAT 32 series of flat motors. The inductive encoder is integrated in the motor, resulting in an extremely short drive unit. Maxon says the ENX 32 MILE is the smallest MILE encoder currently available and offers an impressive resolution and high accuracy. The encoder with inverse signals is also resistant to both magnetic and electrical fields, as well as dirt.

Another new product is the ultra-compact MicroMACS6. The programmable motion controller is designed to synchronise several axes in real time. This master controller is available with an optional Bluetooth service and support interface for the first time. The MicroMACS6 has no power stages, and autonomously controls up to six axes. The controller has two independent CAN interfaces, as well as an Ethernet and a USB interface. The MicroMACS6 is ideal for equipment engineering and is compatible with ESCON and EPOS power stages.

Another milestone in torques is the powerful combination of the industrial drive IDX 56 and the GB 28 worm gear from Parvalux, which can easily handle up to 8 newton-metres. Even more powerful is the new IDX 70 with the configurable GPX 70 planetary circuit. Its peak value is 87.5 newton-meters.
