EC 16 brushless DC servomotors were originally introduced by Maxon Motor Australia in 2001, and now the company has announced remastered replacement models.
A number of modifications and improvements have been made to the brushless DC motors in the new range, including:
- a 60º winding pattern
- NdFeB high performance magnet
- a higher power output; and
- a sterilisable option.
Compared to predecessors in the series, the new brushless DC servomotors feature a torque/speed gradient reduction of around 60%, and a maximum continuous torque increase of around 80%, providing:
- higher stability
- larger bearings
- higher forces
- improved performance; and
- higher torque.
