The new IDX compact drive with integrated positioning controller.

Compact drives

The compact brushless EC-i motor combined with an EPOS4 positioning controller delivers a highly dynamic, powerful drive package with field-oriented control (FOC), high efficiency, and maintenance-free components in a high-quality industrial housing. The maxon IDX drives are suitable for use across the entire speed range (from standstill to maximum speed) and have an extremely high overload capability. Together with a positioning controller, the integrated sensor (single turn) enables absolute positioning.

A maintenance-free positioning drive with proven components.

Design of the drive

This drive with iron core winding is available with encoder and temperature sensor on the winding. The porsition/speed controller is available for this drive as an integrated version (installed directly in the drive). The motor can also be configured so that it can be operated via an external motor controller. The hight-quality design has IP 65 protection rating, only the output shaft must be sealed by the customer. The motor stand out for its hight max. continuous torque, outstanding efficiency and unsurpassed service life.
