Configurable DC drives ordered online

November 20, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The new maxon DCX program offers high power and can be configured and ordered completely online at dcx.maxonmotor.com where users can find innovative brushed DC motors, planetary gearheads and sensors.

The DCX 35L, with a diameter of 35mm, has a speed/torque gradient (4 rpm/mNm) close to that of the existing RE 40 DC motor (40 mm diameter, 3.5 rpm/mNm). Furthermore, all DCX drives can be configured on the Internet and have short delivery times.

The DCX 22 S has precious metal or graphite brushes, can be equipped with standard preloaded ball bearings or sintered bearings and covers a large voltage range with six different ironless windings, System maxon. With the new housing, almost all mechanical configurations are possible. For example, the flange can be equipped with different fastening screw threads and mounting centering options. For use in small spaces, the DCX motor is also available in a short configuration without a flange. The length and diameter of the drive shaft can be selected, with or without flat. The DCX motors can also be ordered with cables or with terminals. Cables are available in various lengths and with connectors.

Furthermore, maxon motor has developed new gearheads and encoders for the DCX motors. The GPX gearhead consists of individually configurable gear stages and is now even quiter and even more robust than equivalent sized gearheads. With a laser weld, the gearhead interface is joined seamlessly to the DCX motor. The GPX gearheads also come with a configurable flange. The output shaft is available in different lengths, with or without a flat, and even with cross holes or a key.
