Portescap introduces Athlonix high-power-density brush dc motors. The compact endurance motors feature speed-to-torque performance, a mass of 15 to 53 g (0.53 to 1.9 oz), and output power up to 9 W. A coreless design with self-supporting coil and magnetic circuit deliver power density and sustained endurance over the motor’s life, offering maximized magnetic flux and turn-density. Energy efficiency is near 90%, depending on motor load conditions, and maximum continuous torque is up to 16.5 N·m (12 lb·ft). Other features include improved angular acceleration, quick acceleration, and high throughput. Athlonix motors are available in 12-, 16-, and 22-mm (0.47-, 0.63-, and 0.87-in) frame sizes and are suitable for use in automation applications that require constant pick-and-place operations during machining, assembly, and scanning as well as for use in robotics.
