The end of an era – last delivery of the maxon S motor
Manufactured for almost 40 years, the last deliveries of the maxon S motor are heading out into the field. It has been surpassed by its modern replacements in terms of power density and production costs but maxon says the quality and longevity of the motor – even by today’s standards – would still set a benchmark for many DC motor manufacturers.
The motor has been reliably used in far-reaching applications from aerospace and medical devices to basic pumping and conveyor belt products, says the manufacturer. To many, it’s just another product retirement; to maxon motor, it is the end of a fantastic era.
