New DC motor and drive catalogue

maxon motor have released the digital edition of the new 2017 / 2018 catalogue. Answering the how to’s of motor control it contains valuable motor and motor control reference material.

Containing 480 pages of motor, gearhead and controller information and useful educational material including a technology breakdown, calculation examples and conversion tables the manual is available now for downloading or online reading. New technology listed includes the customisable stainless steel DC motors in 6mm and 8mm. Information on the new very high speed 13mm BLDC brushless DC motor technology that can be sterilised for medical applications. Ultra-small diameter planetary gearing and high speed gearbox designs and the very latest in motion control, explaining modular decentralised DC motor position controllers and high power density DC servo amplifiers.

New! Brushed DC micro motors and gearheads in 6mm and 8mm diameters.

For applications requiring a DC micro motor that is robust, powerful and delivers high performance.

maxon have released two new brushed DC micro motors available in 6mm and 8mm diameter as part of their DCX range. The DC motors have a robust design with maximum power density from the high-performance neodymium magnets.

Also available are matching gearheads, the planetary gearhead 6mm and planetary gearhead 8mm, as well as two motor controllers, the ENX 6/8 OPT (optical) and ENX 6/8 MAG (magnetic). The matching planetary gearheads are welded directly to the motor and offer reduction ratios of up to 1000:1. Both are able to transmit short-term torques of 60 and 150 mNm respectively. The motor encoders are available in two versions for each diameter and work with voltages as low as 3V, therefore making them highly suitable for medical devices. The encoders come in a magnetic version and for magnetically sensitive applications, the optical encoder is available.

These micro motors are configurable online and available for dispatch in 11 working days from date order placed.

Zero backlash brushless DC motor and Harmonic Gearhead combination with internal encoder.

DC motor and harmonic gear zero backlash450px

New levels of torque and position capability are now possible with the development of adaptive hardware for maxon low profile brushless DC motors and harmonic planetary gearheads.

Pictured is a combination showing the maxon brushless DC 70W 24V motor, 2048 counts per turn internally integrated encoder and the new harmonic light weight low profile zero backlash gearhead. The gearmotor assembly increases the torque and reduces the size of previous solutions using planetary gearbox technology. The output capability is 19Nm repeated and 31Nm intermittently, which is ground-breaking for a combination just 55mm diameter and 59mm long for all three components. Having and internal encoder and a zero backlash gear makes the unit ideal for robotic joint and positioning applications in industrial automation, process control and also for precision laboratory and scientific equipment.

New motion controller design for speed and position control of DC motors

maxon motor’s new motion controller for DC motors is very small indeed. Just 17g and 39mmx54mm the position controller can also control both brushed DC motors and brushless DC motors (BLDC motors).

Available on request is the newest version of the successful EPOS DC motor control modules, the EPOS4 24/1.5. The tiny dimensions of the controller belie it’s capabilities. It retains the full motion control capabilities of much larger controllers including RS232, USB, CanOpen and EtherCAT communications onboard or via adaptor modules. Feedback from the DC or BLDC motor is achieved using either hall sensors, incremental encoders or absolute encoders. It can be used with current / torque control, closed loop speed control and position control. Designed primarily for use on 12V or 24V systems the controller is based on a very high PWM frequency of 100kHz for adaption with highly dynamic ironless and coreless DC motors that have low inductance levels. Current limiting, overcurrent, over temperature, under voltage, overvoltage and short cct protective functions are all included as standard. Free setup software for auto configuration and tuning of motors is supplied along with programming examples for PC, PLC, Labview and Linux environments. IEC61800-5-2 based Safe Torque Off (STO) also makes the controller suitable for use in critical applications such as manufacturing processes and collaborative robotics.

IP rated brushed and brushless DC motors.

maxon motor planetary gearheads fitted with rubber sealed bearings when an IP rated motor or motor and encoder combination is selected.

maxon standard brushed motors of 50mm 200W and 65mm 250W sizes in 12V, 24V and 48V have the option of either an industrial housing to seal the unit in harsh environments or a 500 and 1000cpt 3 channel digital encoder in a sealed industrial housing. This standard option is also available on 45mm 250W brushless motors and 60mm 400W brushless DC motors. All motors have an extended range of planetary gearhead options which when ordered in conjunction with a sealed motor are automatically upgraded and supplied with sealed bearing assemblies. The motors do not require airflow and as such also have been supplied with custom coatings to suit specific environmental conditions. Sealed motor housings are available with axial or radial cable exits and custom uniform diameter designs.

maxon motor online configurator updated

New motors and configuration features available at the touch of a button.

Maxon have added more options to the configuration tool allowing for greater flexibility of DC motor combinations – choose from different motors, add encoders or change gearhead types and reduction.

A new “change” mode has been added that allows replacement in a configuration, for example a brushed DC motor (DCX) can be swapped to a brushless DC motor (ECX). Change the motor windings, bearings and commutation on an existing part number, as well, change the type and reduction in a gearhead. Once your configuration is complete you can buy, add to your wish list, download the specification or create the CAD data.

The guaranteed 11 day turnaround from configuration to manufacture still stands. Visit www.maxonmotor.com.au to take a look at the updates. For application assistance contact maxon motor Australia on +61 2 9457 7477.

A new year full of innovation for leading DC motor specialist.

Welcome to a new year full of exciting technological innovation. maxon motor will again lead the technology push for the most efficient, powerful and dynamic DC motors, gearboxes and controllers.

maxon motor continued to grow in 2016 achieving new records, the maxon motor factory is better, faster and more organised than ever before and all production sites are being expanded. A renewed global focus and streamlining will increase our organisations efficiency with more access to experts in specific application areas. With our increase in capacity and knowledge we will produce more and more complete systems and highly complex sub-assemblies offering further benefits to our customers.

We are eagerly awaiting the Hannover Messe in Germany where maxon motor will present over 18 new products in the 2017/18 program as well as new products launched on the maxon online configuration platform.

I wish all our Australian and New Zealand customers a prosperous year and look forward to helping you succeed.
