Maxon’s RE 50’s “heart” is, as with all mechanically commutated maxon motor drives, the ironless rotor, which results in detent-free running and minimized mass inertia. The combination of a two-pole Neodymium permanent magnet with the patented maxon winding technology results in high torque and remarkable acceleration.
The drive measures Ø50 x 108 mm and is available with four different windings. It reaches a nominal torque of up to 0.38 Nm, a nominal speed of 2800 to 5700 rpm and an efficiency of more than 90%. Low nominal voltage (24.70 VDC) and high power density make the RE 50 an excellent choice for the use in battery-powered applications, such as electric vehicles, transport and logistics equipment, mobile systems, robots, etc.
Pre-loaded bearings contribute to low-vibration and quieter running and an extensive life span. The well proven maxon modular system offers matching planetary gearheads, encoders and control systems. Look for more information soon on a dust and splash water protected RE 50 version, which will be available with an optional brake.
