Micro Story

The first sterilizable drive system

maxon motor introduces the world's first steam sterilizable encoder ENX EASY. It is available in an incremental (1024 counts) and an absolute version (4096 steps) for diameters of 13 and 16 mm and is designed for 1000 autoclave cycles. The encoder can be integrated into the brushless drives ECX 13 and ECX 16 SPEED without increasing the length. When the gearheads GPX 13 and GPX 16 SPEED are added to the combination, engineers receive a fully sterilizable positioning system.
