Complex mechatronic drive systems only work if all components are of the highest quality and perfectly synchronized. maxon not only develops and produces DC and BLDC motors, gearheads, sensors, and controllers, but is also able to combine the high-quality drive components in a mechatronic system. The benefits: a compact design, components configured specifically for the customer, and the guarantee of obtaining maximum performance from the drive system.
- Everything from a single source: DC/BLDC motor, gearhead, sensor, electronics, software, housing
- No compromise on quality
- Long service life
- Low power consumption
- Excellent control properties
- Robust design: resistant to vibrations, shocks, and extreme temperatures
- Compact design: top volume-to-performance ratio
Conquer every incline
maxon has rapidly made a name for itself on the e-bike scene with the BIKEDRIVE retrofitting kit, and has positioned itself strongly among established manufacturers. The system solution from maxon includes not only the motor and gearhead, but also a PowerGrip (throttle grip) and battery. Various partners help customers install this system solution, so that they can retrofit their mountain bike, city bike, or trekking bike with a maxon BIKEDRIVE.
Better quality of life
Exoskeletons are used in medicine and industry. The mechatronic support structures help in cases of paralysis, for example, or with post-accident rehabilitation. The system solution from maxon consists of a powerful, brushless flat motor with an encoder, a three-stage planetary gearhead and an EPOS-4 controller. The components are stored in a light yet robust aluminum housing, with not a millimeter of space wasted. The Exoskeleton Drive from maxon is mainly suitable for knee and hip joints.
For clean air
The drive system consists of a customized brushless flat motor plus electronics. This system solution accurately regulates the urea supply for treatment of diesel exhaust gas, which triggers a chemical reaction that breaks down toxic nitrogen compounds. This pollutant separation ensures compliance with the latest exhaust gas standards. The system is primarily used in trucks and is an important contribution from maxon to improve the global climate.
Precise medical technology
Precision, speed, and user friendliness are indispensable requirements of medical hand-held devices. This sterilizable drive unit from maxon consists of a brushless motor with robust stainless steel housing and cable connection. The motor is controlled by a separate control unit. This is where HPSC (high precision sensorless control) is used, an extremely sophisticated method developed by maxon for the sensorless commutation of brushless motors. During the development of this drive system for dental medicine, particular attention was also paid to its ergonomic properties, so that the hand tool is comfortable to hold. It is available in a range of sizes and power levels.
