Brushless DC Motor
By Design Engineering staffMotion Control Machine Building
Maxon EC-I motor series features high torque density and low vibration.
Maxon released its EC-I line, a series of 52mm brushless DC motors with an iron-wound internal rotor redesigned from 7 pole pairs to 8 pole pairs. Available in three voltage outputs (i.e. 18, 24 and 48V), the 180W motors produce up to 6,000 rpm. With a correspondingly optimized magnet ring, the EC-i motors offer a very high torque density and a low cogging torque, the company says. The motor’s design features a welded stainless steel flange and housing, making this brushless DC motor suitable for a wide range of applications such as rotary actuators, valves, robotic joints and process control.
