By Design Engineering StaffMotion Control Power Transmission Machine Building Maxon Motors motors
Maxon 480W motor withstands up to 200°C, 1000G, and 1700 bar.
Maxon Motor released its EC-4pole 32 HD motor, which is designed for operation in air or flooded in hydraulic oil. The power rating depends on the surrounding medium and amounts to 220W in air and 480W in oil. In addition, the motors are designed for ambient temperatures of more than 200°C and atmospheric pressures of up to 1700 bar. The Ø 32 mm motors must also be able to withstand vibrations of up to 25 grms as well as impacts of up to 1000 G. The motors feature efficiency up to 89 percent in air, more than 80 percent in oil. For the use of the motor in conjunction with a gearhead, maxon offers the GP 32 HD planetary gearhead.
