Kornelia Subicar, with a degree in Aerospace Technology, is a specialist engineer working for maxon motor in Switzerland. With experience working for both the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the European Space Agency (ESA) she now manages the development projects for special DC motors used in space and vacuum environments. The latest tablet magazine edition of driven contains a detailed article on the use of motors in vacuum conditions. maxon DC motors have been used in almost every vacuum condition from particle accelerators to outer space. Read about the influences of vacuum on DC motors and also the influence of DC motors on the vacuum.

In the latest edition of the DC motor magazine from maxon motor “driven”, Robin Phillips gives valued insights on three hot topics. Robin, who studied mathematics and astrophysics is the aerospace project manager at maxon motor.
The first subject matter covered is the German Aerospace Centre plans to fly from Europe the Australia in 90 minutes by 2030. – Robin does not think this will become a reality in this time frame.
Second is the topic of manned mission to Mars. – Read why Mars is not far away and why this is more likely than hypersonic passenger travel in the short-term.
Third is the possibility of colonies on other planets. – Discover why maxon DC motors are at the forefront of technology helping to make this a future reality.
CubeSat mission uses maxon brushless DC motors for satellite positioning.
In the latest issue of the free tablet magazine “driven” which focuses on DC motors in aerospace and aviation, the joint development of a satellite tri-axial inclination control system is featured. This is a form of torque positioning achieved by the motorisation of a reaction wheel. Many DC motors are required in each satellite to achieve stabilisation in the three axes. The CEO of Clyde Aerospace Craig Clark explains why maxon brushless DC motors were used. For detailed application images and video download the tablet magazine from Google Play or the App Store.
Where do DC motors and fabrics come together? – Aviation. Dr Urs Rickenbacker explains in the new maxon motor online magazine.
60% of all aircraft fabrics are produced by Swiss company Lantal. They have produced a groundbreaking product for aircraft seats using maxon DC motors to control pneumatic cushions. Dr Rickenbacker of Lantal explains where the ideas come from, the advantages of the technology and the companies direction in research for the future.
