The HETDEX project (Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy Experiment) is the first major attempt to find and examine “dark energy” in the universe. Through this project, we are able to record three-dimensional positions of one million galaxies using special spectrographs. In the summer of 2012, the Hobby-Eberly Telescope began scanning the universe with the help of maxon … Continue reading maxon motors are used in the Hobby-Eberly Telescope

When in flight, the air becomes thin, particularly at altitudes of 11 km above sea level. This is where modern pressure cabins and environmental control systems (ECS) come into play; they create and maintain a comfortable atmosphere in commercial aircraft. When Boeing was designing their 787 Dreamliner, they utilized a special air-conditioning system to improve … Continue reading maxon motors play a crucial role in the Boeing 787’s air conditioning system
By Warren Osak, CEO of Electromate A common misconception is that a brushless servo motor is always going to be a superior solution to a brush servo motor. In many industrial automation applications, this assumption can be furthest from the truth. A comparison of the benefits and drawbacks of brush and brushless servo motors is … Continue reading Brush Servo Motor vs. Brushless Servo Motor: which is better for my application?
Maxon have released the new EC-i30 20W Brushless Servo Motor with Integrated Electronics. With an integrated 4 Quadrant speed controller, this latest addition to the EC-i portfolio is available as a 5-wire version. Both enable and direction versions of the motor are offered. This high torque 20Watt 30mm diameter motor is ideal in micro fluid … Continue reading New EC-i 30 20W with Integrated Electronics from maxon
The new EC-i 52XL 200W Brushless Servo Motor from maxon is a powerhouse. When space is limited but high torque and dynamics are required, the maxon EC-i 52XL motor is the ideal motor choice. With its extended length (80 → 110mm), this motor with flux collector rotor provides outstanding torque performance compared to the existing EC-i … Continue reading New EC-i 52XL 200W High Torque Brushless Servo Motor from maxon

Servomotors are generally used as a high performance alternative to the stepper motor. Stepper motors have some inherent ability to control position, as they have built-in output steps. This often allows them to be used as an open-loop position control, without any feedback encoder, as their drive signal specifies the number of steps of movement … Continue reading Do you know the difference between these 10 types of servomotors?
High power up to 120 W, speeds up to 100,000 rpm, sterilizable 1000 times. With its modular construction, this new brushless DC motor is available in three performance classes: the cost-optimized EC 19 at 60 Watt, the strong and high-speed EC 19 at 120 Watt and the sterilizable high-end version EC 19 at 120 Watt. … Continue reading maxon’s New BLDC Sterilizable Gearmotor EC 19 and GP 19M
