Not only DC motors, but also Education.

maxon does not only produce DC motors for the Mars missions, but also publishes technical literature.

The author, Dr. Otto Stemme, was born almost 70 years ago. He studied physics, earned his degree in Jena and did his doctorate in Munich. As a young Doctor of Physics he began his career at the Institute for Magnetic Materials in Jena and with the Study Group for Storage Technology at the German Academy of Science in Berlin. He later worked with the AEG-TELEFUNKEN Research Institute in Ulm.
In 1970 Mr. Stemme moved to maxon in Sachseln, Switzerland. Later he changed to the photographic industry as person in charge of quality control at the Rollei Works in Brunswick. Then, for the Agfa-Gevaert Group he became the Manager of the Research and Development Division for Photo Technology. At the height of his career Dr. Stemme was Chief Executive Officer of the Durst Phototechnik GmbH in Bozen.

The book “Magnetismus” is a result of Mr. Stemme’s wide knowledge which he has made available even after his well earned retirement. Mr. Stemme has created an unequalled scientific work. He has succeeded in making his wide knowledge available for future generations and in concentrating a very extensive topic into one book.
The book works with simple examples, with estimates and even with approximations. The aim is to cultivate basic understanding and to offer assistance for feasibility calculations and considerations. The book has three chapters. Initially basics and terms are explained, then there is some theory on magnetism and finally the magnetic circuit and magnetisation procedures are dealt with in detail. Due to their proximity to drive technology, magnetic forces are dealt with at length, as are magnetic field sensor technology and natural magnetic fields.

The book is available from maxon motor Australia for $50.00 including postage and handling.
