Maxon Motor has described its EC 4 brushless DC motor as its most compact solution, only 4mm in diameter and available in two lengths, with power ratings of 0.5 and 1W.

EC 4

Equipped with an ironless Maxon winding, the EC 4 stands out for its robust design, high power density and energy efficiency.

Combined with the GP 4 planetary gearhead, the EC 4 becomes a compact drive for use in micropumps, analytic and diagnostic devices, and laboratory robots. It can adjust lenses, dispense fluids, or position sensing devices. All units meet the ISO 13485 medical standard, which makes this micro drive suitable for medical applications.
