Mclennan distributes the Portescap’s newly released Athlonix™ 24DCT series with full support. It is suited for miniature power transmission applications where energy consumption needs to be minimised or where high torque output is required in small installation envelopes. With an excellent price-to-performance factor, typical uses include battery driven medical and industrial pumps, syringe drug delivery drivers, portable power tools and gas analysers. The 24 mm diameter precision motor is available with a wide choice of winding options for voltages from 21 to 48 V DC and a choice of precious metal or graphite-copper commutation. With its high-performance neodymium magnet system the continuous output torque capability across the range is over 14 mNm with stall torque to over 60mNm and continuous speeds of 10,000 rpm.
The graphite brush version features a unique constant force spring design for consistent performance whilst an REE (Restriction of Electro Erosion) coil option is available for prolonged motor life. Thanks to its modular design and component standardization, the 24DCT series offers competitive and fast customization. Single or dual shaft versions with sleeve or ball bearings are easily configured as well as connector and cable options. The new motors are of course fully compatible with Portescap’s wide range of high precision planetary and spur gearheads with precision encoders available for precise speed and accurate positioning is required.
