Discontinuation of A, F and S motors

A, F and S motors are being discontinued in favour of the RE, A-max, DCX and DC-max state-of-the-art ironless DC motors

For some time now the ironless A, F, and S motors have no longer reflected the state of the art technology integrated in other maxon motors which means they can no longer be manufactured economically. Order quantities have decreased which has compelled maxon to discontinue these motors in the long term.

The motors were launched in the 1970s and 1980s, and they have played a key role in the success story of maxon motor for decades. A, F, and S motors will remain available to customers until the end of 2017 (last delivery no later than June 2018). Because of the sharp increase in production costs, maxon is not able to accept and process small orders after 1 April 2015, thereby introducing a minimum-order quantity.

Introduction of minimum-order quantity:          1 April 2015

Last order:                                                       December 2017

Last delivery:                                                   June 2018

With our RE, A-max, DCX and DC-max series, maxon motor offers a wide range of state-of-the-art ironless DC motors. Any questions can be directed to our Sales Engineers on + 61 2 9457 7477 who can assist with minimum order quantities and alternatives.
