Technology Roundup: The Modern Automobile
Heavy Duty Drive Solution for Extremely Harsh Operating Conditions
Brushless 22mm HD motor and gear combo. maxon motor launches its EC22HD heavy duty motor; a 22mm-diameter brushless motor that outperforms any other commercial electric drive on shock, vibration and temperature tolerances. This motor was developed for the exceptionally high requirements in deep drilling technology and resists the most extreme operating conditions. Also available in combination with the GP22 heavy duty gearhead in 1 to 5 stages for use in oil or air operation.
maxon motors fly into outer space on board the Dragon spacecraft
The flawless launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on May 22, 2012 is another successful step for maxon motor ag in the use of high precision motors in the astronautics industry. The crucial tasks of the maxon motors in the SpaceX mission included orienting the solar arrays of the Dragon spacecraft towards the sun to provide the power supply.
The RE 30 EB 15 W maxon DC motor for fine rotary motions
maxon windings and precious metal brushes generate higher torque. Haptic applications are well known in medical engineering, robotics, and aeronautics. For example: An active helicopter sidestick generates forces that provide tactile feedback to the pilot of a conventional system. Such applications require a special drive. maxon's ironless winding and precious metal commutation were predestined for these requirements.
Small spindle drives are now available in wearproof ceramic
Two new complete systems composed of spindle, axial bearing, and gearhead. With the GP8S and GP16S spindle drives, maxon motor is expanding the program and simultaneously launching the ceramic spindle. The ceramic spindle is an extraordinary product, with several advantages.
High-speed Synchronization with EPOS3 70/10 EtherCAT
The digital positioning controller EPOS3 70/10 EtherCAT meets the highest demands in real-time positioning of synchronized multi-axis systems. Extremely compact in size, the EPOS3 possesses a wide nominal power supply voltage range from 11 to 70 VDC and delivers a continuous output current of 10 A, during acceleration and deceleration even up to 25 A. Designed for DC brushed and brushless motors with a power range up to 700 Watts.
