Maxon Motor Australia has recently announced the introduction of two new sterilizable motors for use in high speed medical applications.
These two sterilizable 50 Watt drives, the EC Size 5 and EC 13, stand out by high power, extremely low-noise and low-vibration operation, marginal heat generation and minimal size.
Both drives tie to their 30 Watt relatives but offer an additional 50% of torque with only 11 mm of extra length. EC 13 and EC Size 5 are of identical design and deliver torques of up to 8 mNm with an efficiency of 90%.
Characterized by a special compact design, these innovative drives are particularly adapted for medical use and feature very high nominal speed, quiet running, minimized heat generation and sterilizability in the autoclave.
Both sterilizable motors are available with Hall sensors or sensorless and with three different windings. The gearheads come in reductions of 5:1 to 125:1, with or without output end shaft seal.
