FALL RIVER, Mass., July 5, 2012 — The ultraslim design of Maxon Precision Motors Inc.’s EC 90 flat motor is now equipped with MILE (Maxon’s Inductive Little Encoder). A small inductive rotary encoder, its operating principle is based on detection of high-frequency inductivity, which generates eddy current in an electrically conducting target. Advantages of a high-frequency inductive method of measurement include high speed, high robustness toward dust or oil vapor, and insensitivity to interference pulses. The brushless motor is precise and delivers resolutions of up to 3200 impulses per turn and a high nominal torque of 517 mNm, making it suitable for applications such as door drives, logistic robots and solar trackers. The motor is distinguished by optimal integration of the MILE encoder, flange pattern, fixation and pin assignment.
