August 17, 2016 - Portescap expands the DCT range of Athlonix Brush DC motors with the introduction of the 17DCT brush dc mini motor. The 17DCT motor features Portescap’s proven energy efficient coreless design with an optimized self-supporting coil and magnetic circuit which enables higher performance in a compact 17 mm diameter size.
With torque carrying capabilities reaching up to 6.14 mNm, the 17DCT provides performance with efficiency reaching up to 85%. This makes it ideal for demanding applications such as medical and industrial pumps, drug delivery systems, miniature industrial power tools, tattoo machines, mesotherapy guns, dental tools, watch winders and more. Other applications, including lab automation, security and access and humanoid robots, can benefit from the features of the 17DCT Athlonix motor.
Athlonix 17DCT miniature dc motors are available in 2 variations, precious metal commutation and graphite commutation with a neodymium magnet inside. The constant force spring design for carbon brush provides consistent performance. An REE (Restriction of Electro Erosion) coil is an available option, which prolongs the life of the motor and provides an environment of intrinsic safety especially at high speed conditions.
Component standardization and design modularity allow customization capability for samples across various applications.
