  2. New 52mm Brushless DC (BLDC) motor design

    Maxon motors new optimisation of the High Torque 52mm brushless motor gives even greater performance.

    Maxon EC-i 52mm BLDC Servo Motor

    Maxon EC-i 52mm BLDC Servo Motor


    The EC-i 52mm brushless DC motor from maxon has had the iron-wound internal rotor motor redesigned from 7 pole pairs to 8 pole pairs. This significantly reduces the vibration and noise output of the DC motor. Available in three voltage outputs, 18, 24 and 48V the 52mm 180 W brushless DC motors produce up to 6,000 rpm.
    With a correspondingly optimised magnet ring, the brushless EC-i motors with iron windings offer a very high torque density and a low cogging torque.

  4. New DMC-3x014-Box 1-Axis Controller box w/ internal 20W linear brushless servo drive w/ sine commutation

    Galil DMC-30014Galil is introducing a new single axis linear drive package: the DMC-3×014. The new DMC-3×014 contains a 20W linear brushless servo drive with sinusoidal commutation. The transconductance linear amplifier has an operating gain of 0.2 A/V, with a current loop bandwidth of 4 kHz. The amplifier can drive brushless motors and voice coil motors operating at up to 1 Amp continuous, and 2 Amp peak at 15-40 VDC.
    Trapezoidal commutation can have discontinuities and produce a torque ripple. This is because the torque characteristics of the motor are only taken into account in six zones. With sinusoidal commutation, the torque characteristics of the motor are mapped to all positions, resulting

  5. Application Note: Advantages of coupling of linear motors

    Does your machine need a power upgrade or do you want to expand an existing design?  Coupling two linear motors is an easy and effective way of increasing the available force.  Herewith you are not just limited to using identical motors.  Various combinations can be made, as long as the motor force constant is the same.  This Application Note discusses some details of a ‘coupled application’.
    Advantages of technical solutions like a coupling of motors are usually highly case-specific.  Are you thinking about a solution with either one large motor or a couple of smaller ones?  We have listed some common benefits.
