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 percent. 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 degrees C. 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. Industrial applications include logistics equipment, mobile robotics, packaging machinery and power tools or aerospace.
