Maxon adds sizes to DCX motor and GPX gearbox lines.
Maxon announced new additions to its X drive and GPX planetary gearhead lines. The motor line now includes four more motor sizes — 14, 16, 22 and 26mm diameter models. The models are also available in a long version that offers higher continuous torque and output power. In addition, the GPX planetary gearhead line has added sizes 14, 19, 26 and 37mm, all of which are designed with scaled gear stages. Each of the new 3-stage gearheads can be driven with the next smaller motor. In addition, the existing GPX 16 and GPX 32 models are available in various versions and can be equipped with ceramic axles to reduce wear. Lastly, the company’s ENX 16 Easy absolute encoder is available as an SSI or BiSS-C version, according to the customer’s requirements.
