maxon's EC 40, a 40mm brushless motor with a formula for high power density.

maxon precision motors, inc.

maxon’s new EC 40 is characterized by high quality materials and high performing specifications.  The motor features a neodymium permanent magnet, stainless steel housing and welded flanges. It features a very flat speed/torque gradient (about 3.6 rpm/mNm), mechanical time constant 2.1 ms, permissible speed 18'000 rpm, and efficiency of 89%. The ironless winding offers extra quiet running and high stall torque.

As all maxon motors, the EC 40 can be combined with a multitude of components, such as encoders or gears. As a new member, the permanent magnet brake AB 32 joins the maxon modular system. It is designed for operating temperatures of 40 to +100°C and is the EC 40's perfect match. A wide range of compatible controllers, from 1-quadrant and 4-quadrant servo amplifiers to programmable positioning controllers, make the EC 40 a multi-talented high-power unit.

This new EC 40 is an excellent choice when it comes to industrial applications, logistics equipment, mobile robotics, packaging machinery and power tools or aerospace.
