Maxon Launches High Torque DC Brushless Motors

By Caroline Rees / 05 May 2015

ECi 40 High Torque DC MotorsDrive specialist maxon motor has launched a high-torque variant of its EC-i 40 DC brushless motor, which is especially suited to applications demanding very high torque. The iron-core internal rotor drive is available with a diameter of 40 mm and delivers up to 234 mNm of torque.

The EC-i 40 High Torque series of DC motors features three powerful iron-core internal rotor drives with a diameter of 40 mm, equipped with an innovative rotor. The drives 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 predecessor by up to 70 percent.

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 required, the EC-i 40 High Torque motors can be combined with maxon gearheads, servo controllers, or position controllers.
