As with all maxon motor's mechanically commutated drives, the heart of the RE 65 DC Motor is the ironless rotor. This means that the drive works detent-free and has minimal rotor inertia. High torques and very quick acceleration times are produced in combination with the four-pole structure of the Neodyium permanent magnets.
Depending on the winding variation, the cylindrical drive, at 65 mm diameter and 130 mm length, delivers nominal torque of 0.5 to 0.9 Nm - at a nominal speed of 2,400 - 3,700 rpm. The power density is therefore more than double compared to existing drives. The RE65 DC motor can reach efficiency levels of up to 90%. Combined with low vehicles, transport and logistics equipment, mobile robots etc.
Preloaded ball bearings support low-vibration and low-noise operation, offering the best conditions for a long service life in conjuction with graphite brushes. Maxon's established modular system can provide matching planetary drives, encoders and controllers to suit every specific appliction for the RE 65.
Accordingly, the new drive is also suitable for all kinds of applications in automation, engineering or medical technology.
