The first steam-sterilizable encoder in the world
With the ENX EASY, maxon motor is offering a sterilizable encoder for drive solutions for the first time. It is available in an incremental (1024 counts) and absolute version (4096 steps), both designed for 1000 autoclave cycles.
As of now, the ENX EASY can be ordered online in two sizes, which can be combined with matching BLDC motors and planetary gearheads. The encoder can be integrated into the brushless drives ECX 13 and ECX 16 SPEED without any increase in length. With the addition of a GPX 13 or GPX 16 SPEED gearhead, customers receive a fully sterilizable drive combination that opens up an entire new range of possibilities in medical technology. Its compact and robust design is ideal especially for power tools. The encoder also makes accurate positioning possible, improving motor control at low speeds.
