Portescap recently introduced the next generation of Athlonix high power density brush DC motors. Athlonix DCP motors offer an optimized price-to-performance solution for a broad spectrum of applications. Available in a 22 mm diameter, the new 22DCP motor will feature an energy efficient coreless design with a self-supporting coil and magnetic circuit.

Athlonix 22DCP motors are available in two variations, precious metal commutation and graphite commutation with Alnico magnet inside. The constant force spring design for carbon brush ensures consistent performance. A REE (Restriction of Electro Erosion) coil is an available option, which ensures extended life of the motor.

With a maximum continuous torque of up to 6.5 mNm and higher stall torque than similar comparative motors, Athlonix 22DCP motors are suited to use in applications such as medical and industrial pumps, gas analyzers and security and access and power tools.

“Athlonix motors are powered by a proprietary self-supporting coil resulting into maximized magnetic flux and ampere-turns for a given diameter,” says Sunil Kumar, brush DC product line manager at Portescap. “In contrast, typical self-supporting coils have inherent ampere-turns limitations that affect the magnetic flux density in the magnetic circuit, which further limits power output and endurance of the motor,” he says.

Component standardization and design modularity ensure quick customization capability for samples across various applications. Standard configurations can be delivered with a maximum one week lead-time.

Athlonix motors are compatible with encoders and gearheads of various sizes and ratios and are also available on Portescap’s online motor configurator, MotionCompass. They are manufactured in an ISO certified facility, and are RoHS compliant.
