At the new brushless DC motor Maxon Motor's EC 40 delivers high performance in the smallest of spaces without sacrificing efficiency and reliability. 40 W power is available in a hand-sized Ø 80 x 170 mm sheath. The EC 40 is characterized by two things; high quality materials and technical data. The motor is equipped with a neodymium permanent magnet, stainless casing and welded flanges. The technical data: very flat characteristic slope (around 3,6 min-1/ mNm-1), mechanical startup time constant 2,1 ms, limit speed 18.000 min-1, Efficiency 89%. The ironless winding results in very quiet, restless torque running and high stopping torque.
Like all the manufacturer's engines, the EC 40 can be combined with a variety of add-on components, such as encoders or gearboxes. A new addition to the maxon modular system is the permanent magnet brake AB 40, which has been adapted to the EC 32 for operating temperatures from -40 ° to + 100 ° C. A variety of compatible controllers, from 1 quadrant to 4 quadrant servo drives, to programmable positioning controllers make the EC 40 a multi-talented powerhouse. The EC 40 is suitable for use in industrial and logistics facilities, in mobile robotics, in packaging machines and in power tools or in the aerospace industry.
