Two years ago, maxon motor presented a new generation of brushed DC motors – the maxon X drives. These are extremely powerful, easy to configure online, and ready for shipment within 11 days. Now, four more motor sizes are being added to the existing portfolio. The 14, 16, 22 and 26 mm diameter models are now each available in a long version (L), which offers higher continuous torque and higher continuous output power.
At the same time, maxon motor is presenting four new GPX planetary gearheads, in the sizes 14, 19, 26 and 37 mm, which feature perfect compatibility. All of these gearheads are designed with scaled gear stages. The biggest news is that each of the new 3-stage gearheads can be driven with the next smaller motor. This brings many advantages, as the resulting drive system is smaller, lighter and more economical.
That’s not all: Starting immediately, the existing GPX 16 and GPX 32 models are available in various versions and can be equipped with ceramic axles to reduce wear. Customers looking for a particularly low noise gearhead have the option of choosing plastic planet gears.
maxon has also expanded the encoder portfolio. The new ENX 16 Easy absolute encoder is available as an SSI or BiSS-C version, according to the customer’s requirements.
All new products are available in the online shop starting immediately. They can be easily configured together with the other maxon X drive products: Customers choose the desired motor, the matching winding, brushes and shaft length, as well as the gearhead and encoder. The configured product is ready for shipment in 11 days or less.
