MAXON DC MOTOR
"Coreless" maxon DC motor: Which are the specific advantages of the coreless design compared to a conventional DC motor? How is the motor designed? Which are the underlying physical principles? What are the differences between precious metal and graphite brushes and where are these two systems used?
MAXON EC MOTOR
Brushless maxon EC motor: How is the motor designed and which are the underlying physical principles? What kind of design variants do exist? What are the differences between block and sinusoidal commutation and where are these two systems used?
MOTOR DATA AND OPERATION RANGES
Learn how to read and interpret motor data sheets.
A set of cut-away DC and EC motor samples.
"Principles and Properties of Highly Dynamic DC Miniature Motors" by Otto Stemme and Peter Wolf. This booklet (approx. 80 pages) gives a fundamental description of coreless maxon DC and EC motors. Starting from the physical principals and the geometrical arrangements it deviates the main motor characteristics in a stringent way.
