Press Release Summary:
DEC 24/1 can control small brushless motors with Hall sensors at speeds up to 120,000 rpm. Operating in either open or closed loop mode, amplifier controls motor speed based on external voltage signal or via internal potentiometer. Inputs include direction, brake, and enable functions. Speed monitor output is available. Amplifier measures 2.2 X 1.4 X 0.9 in., weighs 0.7 oz, and works in ambient operating temperature of 14 to 113Â°F.

Brushless Motor Controller
Provides digital speed control in a compact package
Burlingame, CA-Maxon's new DEC 24/1 is designed for controlling small brushless motors with Hall sensors. Operating in either open or closed loop mode, the amplifier will control the motor's speed based on an external voltage signal or via an internal potentiometer. Inputs include direction, brake, and enable functions, and a speed monitor output is also available. Integrated motor chokes insure compatibility with most small brushless motors.
Using a flexible supply voltage of 5 to 24 V DC, the amplifier has a maximum current output of 1 A continuous and 2 A peak. Using a 2-pole motor the maximum speed is 120,000 RPM. This compact amplifier measures 57 X 36 X 24 mm (2.2 X 1.4 X 0.9 in), and weighs in at 20 g (0.7 oz). Ambient operating temperature is -10° to 45°C (14° to 113°F).
The DEC 24/1 is ideally suited for small, cost-sensitive applications where the cost or size of a traditional servo system would be prohibitive. Common applications include semiconductor manufacturing, robotics, test & measurement, and medical systems.
Maxon designs, manufactures, and markets fractional horsepower moving coil DC motors & brushless motors ranging in size from 6 to 75 mm (0.2 to 3 in) and from 0.5 to 500 watts. We also have an extensive selection of gearheads, encoders, and control electronics to complement our motors.
