Further upgrades boost popular motors and planetary gearheads

Further upgrades boost popular motors and planetary gearheads Maxon motor has further improved its EC 90 flat and EC 6 brushless motors and its GP 6A planetary gearhead, highlighting its ongoing commitment to technical excellence. The refinements to the already-popular models were made in consultation with leading design engineers throughout Europe.

As a result, Maxon's GP 6A planetary gearhead now has connection brushing gears and motors made as one piece, increasing stability and further improving process reliability. The GP 6A has also been tested and approved at an extended temperature range of -40°C to 100°C, increasing its range of possible uses. The EC 6 micro electric has been fitted with new Hall sensors, extending the operating voltage range to 4.5-18VDC. The EC 90 flat motor benefits from a new rotor cover, now constructed entirely of steel, whilst the flange is now constructed entirely from aluminium.

The motor refinements are valid for both the 60 watt and 90 watt versions and have no impact on their size or shape, whilst further enhancing the reliability and stability of the motors.

All of the changes are reflected in the 2010/11 catalogue and are made at no extra cost.  Maxon Motor uk senior sales engineer Ian Bell said: "At Maxon we work closely every day with design engineers to refine our products, ensuring we achieve the highest levels of reliability and performance. We think it's safe to say the best just got better."
