The invisible door opener Together with a Swiss elevator manufacturer, maxon developed a system solution for driving elevator doors. Encased in a housing, the door drive can be mounted directly to the lift cab. And this is where its real work starts. There are many different types of elevators, with differently sized cabs, different materials and, depending on the country, different safety standards. After a homing proce- dure, the controller co-developed by maxon detects the size and weight of the doors, autonomously calculates the optimal parameters, and corrects them if necessary. In just a few steps, the door drive is configured and ready for use. The system solution combines a brushless EC90 flat with customized housing, an integrated EPOS positioning controller and MILE encoder.
Complex mechatronic drive systems only work if all components are of the highest quality and perfectly synchronized maxon not only develaops and produces DC and BLDC motors, gearheads, sensors, and controllers, but is also able to combine the high- quality drive components in a mechatronic system. The benefits: a com- pact design, components configured specifically for the customer, and the guarantee of obtaining maximum performance from the drive system.
Better quality of life Exoskeletons are used in medicine and industry. The mechatronic support structures help in cases of paralysis, for example, or with post-accident rehabilitation. The system solution from maxon consists of a powerful, brushless flat motor with an encoder, a three- stage planetary gearhead and an EPOS4 controller. The components are stored in a light yet robust aluminum housing, with not a millimeter of space wasted. The Exoskeleton Drive from maxon is mainly suitable for knee and hip joints.
