Two years ago, Maxon Motor introduced a new generation of brushed DC motors – the Maxon X drives. These are powerful, easy to configure online and ready for shipment within 11 days. Now, four more motor sizes are being added to the existing portfolio. The 14, 16, 22 and 26 mm diameter models are now each available in a long version (L), which offers higher continuous torque and higher continuous output power.
At the same time, Maxon motor is introducing four new GPX planetary gearheads, in the sizes 14, 19, 26 and 37 mm, compatible to existing products in the program. These gearheads are designed with scaled gear stages. Each of the new three-stage gearheads can be driven with the next smaller motor. This results in the drive system being smaller, lighter and more economical.
Starting immediately, the existing GPX 16 and GPX 32 models are available in various versions and can be equipped with ceramic axles to reduce wear. Customers looking for a particularly low-noise gearhead have the option of choosing plastic planetary gears.
Maxon also expanded the encoder portfolio. The new ENX 16 Easy absolute encoder is available as an SSI or BiSS-C version, according to the customer's requirements.
All new products are available in the online shop starting immediately.
