Maxon Motor has unveiled its EC 8 brushless micro drive, which is built in accordance with Medical Standard ISO 13485, making it ideal for surgical applications.

With continuous torque of up to 0.95mNm and a nominal speed as high as 80,000rpm, the 8mm motor has an efficiency of 70 per cent, achieved through its use of a neodymium magnet and magnetic return.

Construction is further enhanced by Maxon’s laser welding technology, which has been used for the motor/gear and shaft/pinion.

The combination comes in one piece, improving strength and reliability.

The versatile 2W micro motor is available with 6, 12 or 24V windings, with or without Hall sensors.

Due to Maxon’s modular approach, the EC 8 can be easily combined with the matching GP 8A planetary gearhead, while compatibility with the controllers DEC 24/1, DEC Module 24/2 and DECS 50/5 is guaranteed.

Applications include sampling robots, insulin pumps, portable analysers, collimators and surgical microscopes.
