maxon motor's - Compact yet powerful Brushless DC motor

In automation and robotics, many applications are characterized by high energy and high torque at the same time. Spatial restrictions also mean that drives must be short, have a long service life and be maintenance-free. The newly redesigned EC-i motors from maxon motors offer solutions that fit these requirements perfectly. Maxon's ECi 40mm motor offers low inertia, minimal detent, robust bearings and compact construction. The use of high-powered permanent magnets ensures high power density, providing great speed stability under load. EC-i motors are ideally suited for applications that require maximum drive in a minimum space. Typical areas of application are robotics, industrial automation and security technology.
