Discontinuation of 13mm brushless DC maxon motor.

maxon would like to inform customers of the upcoming discontinuation of the EC 13 and EC size 5 brushless DC motors with a power of 30 W and 50 W.

The discontinuation affects the following motors and combinations in which they are used:

  • EC 13, 30 W Length: 39 mm
  • EC 13, 50 W Length: 50 mm
  • EC size 5, 30 W Length: 39 mm
  • EC size 5, 50 W Length: 50 mm

The sterilisable versions of these EC motors with a diameter of 13mm / 0.5” were first introduced in 2009. They were revised in 2013 and at the same time, the status of the original version was set to NRND (not recommended for new designs).

With the release of the latest generation ECX SPEED 13 brushless motors in April 2017 (main picture), all EC 13 / size 5 motors with 30 W and 50 W were set to NRND.

The ECX SPEED 13 brushless motors serve as a replacement for the EC 13 / size 5. They are also available in a sterilisable version (up to 2,000 autoclave cycles) and are very similar in terms of both performance specifications and size.

The ECX 13 can be combined with gearheads of the GPX 13 (sterilisable) and GPX 14 series, are available with integrated EASY INT encoders, and cost less than the EC 13 / size 5.

As configurable units, ECX SPEED 13mm brushless motors are also available for shipping within 11 days.
