New high-end drive access at home or work

The maxon configurator is expanding its offering with a simple, customised, high-end drive, with access at work or at home using maxon motor’s online configurator.

When constructing a prototype, or if a product is scheduled for a rapid market launch, it is often necessary to choose the right direct current (DC) motor for the project very quickly. In such cases, engineers go to maxon motor’s online configurator.

The platform has tens of thousands of drive options to choose from, which are all available quickly and easily. A variety of brushless, high-speed motors and gearheads are also now available.

In addition to the brushed and brushless DC motors with diameters of 8mm to 35mm, maxon recently expanded its range of brushless ECX drives. As a result, ECX SPEED drives are now available in a variety of sizes, both in the high-power or sterilisable versions and also with the option of ceramic bearings.

In addition, the company offers planetary gearheads (GPX SPEED) to complement the ECX drives and, as a sealed design, tolerate 2,000 autoclave cycles.

The online configurator, allows users to assemble individual drives including shafts, flanges, and electrical connections. This gives users a whole new range of possibilities.

A complete drive, including gearheads and encoders, can be configured and ordered in only a few minutes. The electronic data goes directly to maxon motor’s production facilities, where the drives are put together in automated processes. Once the order is placed, it will be processed and shipped within eleven working days.
