Unmanned vehicles: the maxon motor drive solution.
Across the many and varied robotics applications be they surgical, UAV, humanoid, collaborative or industrial robots, maxon motor offers motor and drive solutions.
Unmanned robots step-in for humans when the environment is too dangerous or rugged to tread. These robots are designed to perform a variety of tasks, operate independently and negotiate tough terrain. The motors and drives need to be 100% reliable particularly when the environment for repairs is dangerous, impractical or near-impossible for humans to negotiate. Because these microdrives run on batteries, engineers look at the energy efficiency for the longest life-span possible. These drives are configurable on-line to suit specific application needs and ready to be shipped after 11 days.
The maxon motor drive solution
Offering high-energy efficiency, extreme power packed into small spaces, precise position & speed control and very high torque output. The brushed DC motor with planetary gearhead and maxon X-series encoder is pictured below. maxon motor recommends a DCX 22 with graphite brushes for robust operation fitted with a GPX HP gearhead and ENX 16 EASY encoder.
Other maxon drive solutions to consider
- Brushless DC motors: The EC-i 40, EC-i 40 High Torque with EASY Encoder.
- Brushless flat motors: EC45 flat, EC 60 flat and EC90 flat with MILE Encoder.
- Controllers: ESCON Module 50/5, DEC Module 50/5 or EPOS2 Module 36/2.
