maxon motor launches online configurable dc drives service
15 November 2012
Products from the new maxon DCX range, including DCX motors, GPX gearheads and ENX encoders, can be configured and ordered online, thanks to a new service available from the manufacturer's website.
By optimising the subassemblies and using high-performance magnets, maxon has made the new drives smaller and more powerful. The DCX 35L, for example, with a diameter of 35 mm, has a speed/torque gradient (4rpm/mNm) close to that of the existing RE 40 dc motor (40mm diameter, 3.5rpm/mNm).
The DCX 22 S has precious metal or graphite brushes, can be equipped with standard preloaded ball bearings or sintered bearings and covers a large voltage range with six different ironless windings. With the new housing, almost all mechanical configurations are possible. For example, the flange can be equipped with different fastening screw threads and mounting centering options.
For use in small spaces, the DCX motor is also available in a short configuration without a flange. The length and diameter of the drive shaft can be selected, with or without flat. The DCX motors can also be ordered with cables or with terminals. Cables are available in various lengths and with connectors.
maxon motor has developed new gearheads and encoders for the DCX motors. The GPX gearhead consists of individually configurable gear stages and configurable flange. The output shaft is available in different lengths, with or without a flat, and with cross holes or a key.
Matching maxon ENX encoders include the ENX QUAD encoder, a single-pulse, 2-channel device ideal for speed and direction detection. With a built in ESD protection network, reverse polarity protection, cable strain relief and the robust design, it is an economic choice for simple closed-loop tasks.
The ENX EASY is a 3-channel encoder with line driver in acc. with RS422. A resolution of up to 1024 pulses per revolution can be selected. Thanks to the line driver and high resolution, it is a suitable choice for high-precision position and speed control applications.
The cables of the ENX encoder are configurable in seven lengths, from 50mm to 1,000mm.
