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.

Wide range of applications.

Very compact size with a large functional scope for systems with an operating voltage from 12 to 48 VDC: The new maxon compact drives fully cover this requirement. They are extremely flexible for use in industrial, robotics, and logistics applications with the most stringent of requirements, such as autonomous transport systems.

Intralogistics & AGV

The logistics market has grown fast over the past ten years, driven mostly by the e-commerce sector. AGV(Automated Guided Vehicles) have revolutionized the market with compact and efficient solutions. These guided robots make it possible to optimize the handling of goods in warehouses, as well as to offer solutions for delivery support (outdoor AGV). maxon IDX drives are ideally suited for the production of compact, powerful, modular intralogistics robots that are also easy to use.
