maxon motor - Internal rotor drives with incredible power

maxon presents new High Torque DC brushless motors

For applications demanding very high torque, drive specialist maxon motor is now launching its EC-i 40 DC brushless motor in a High Torque version. The iron-core internal rotor drive is available with a diameter of 40 mm and delivers up to 234 mNm of torque.


When it comes to powerful movements, maxon delivers with its EC-i 40 High Torque series of DC motors. The Swiss drive specialist presents three powerful iron-core internal rotor drives. The drives have a diameter of 40 mm and are equipped with an innovative rotor. They feature high dynamics, a low cogging torque, and extremely high output torque. The strongest motor in this series offers a maximum nominal torque of 234 mNm and is 56 millimeters in length. It exceeds the performance of its precursor model by up to 70 percent.

Especially suitable for robotics

The three new brushless DC motors are cost-effective and ideally suited for applications in robotics, prosthetics, and industrial automation. The compact design offers a great solution in applications with extreme space constraints. When needed, the EC-i 40 High Torque motors can be combined with maxon gearheads, servo controllers, or position controllers. The EC-i 40 series is easily configured and available in our online shop.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
