Small DC servo motors extended encoder range
The Maxon DCX motors are growing increasingly popular because of the ground-breaking online configuration and automated production facility.
It allows a customer to directly modify the features of the motor and select various gearhead and encoder options. The selectable range of encoders has just increased with the new three-channel range of optical 2RMF and SCH sensors.
Once the encoder is selected the resolution option is given with selectable counts per turn from 3,000 to 5,000. The encoders feature a wide input voltage range from 4.5 to 30V DC. The output signal is EIA standard RS422 using an 26C31 driver.
With the configuration tool you can select a low backlash gearhead or Maxon can supply zero backlash high reduction gearheads that when used in conjunction with the 5,000cpt will give you a 20,000 quad count position capability. Multiply this by the gearhead ratio selection and the result is an extremely accurate positioning drive.
