New IP67 12V and 24V DC motors with internal encoder and holding brake.
Supplied via maxon motor Australia, specifically designed for the Agriculture industry is the first of the new IP67 12V and 24V DC motors with an incremental encoder built inside the motor body.
The first motor in this series being developed is the 80mm diameter 172mm long 250W brushed permanent magnet motor assembled with 81mm IP67 gearheads. The IP67 gearhead range has an large reduction range to select from facilitating torque production of up to 180Nm. The internal magnetic encoder sits behind the motor commutator, has two channels and can be run on either 5V DC or 24V DC. Mounting the encoder internally also has the advantage of freeing up the motor rear shaft where an external holding brake can be fitted. The first units supplied will have a B56 brake that combined with gearing can provide the 180Nm of torque also for holding the load in place on the unpowered condition. Future versions will have the option of either power activated or power de-activated holding brakes also with a sealed enclosure for harsh environments.
