Motion Control – The Mars helicopter made history – with maxon’s precision motors!

Motion Control – Mars helicopter has maxon’s motors!

Space fans are thrilled: NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter has successfully completed its pioneering flight on Mars. This is the first time in the history of powered, unmanned spaceflight that a device has flown in a controlled manner on another planet.

motion control - mars helicopter


motion control - maxonTaunton, MA — Motion Control Products – A short flight for “Ingenuity,” but a big success for unmanned space flight. NASA’s Mars helicopter flew over the surface of the Red Planet for about 40 seconds on Monday, April 19th and landed back on four legs. From NASA’s perspective, this is a historic event similar to the Wright brothers’ first controlled flight in 1903.

With the Mars helicopter, the concept of powered, unmanned, and autonomous flights on foreign planets is being tested. This is comparable to the first Mars rover “Sojourner”, which paved the way for scientific follow-up missions such as “Curiosity” and currently “Perseverance”. “Ingenuity” is about to complete several flights over a period of 30 days, each lasting up to 90 seconds and reaching a maximum altitude of five meters.

Motion Control – The first e-road bikes and e-MTBs with the lightweight maxon BIKEDRIVE AIR have arrived!

Motion Control – e-road bikes and e-MTBs!

Italian premium road bike manufacturer, Cipollini and Swiss bike manufacturer, TRANSALPES launch their new lightweight e-bikes with the maxon BIKEDRIVE AIR

motion control - application


motion control - maxon motorsTaunton, MA — Motion Control Products – The Cipollini Flusso is a performance e-road bike that weighs only 10.7 kg. With a weight of less than 16 kg, the TRANSALPES E1 sets standards in the electrified trail and enduro segment. Both e-bikes put a natural feel at the center of the riding experience.

There is an emerging trend in the e-bike market towards lightweight systems that are almost indistinguishable from standard bicycles. This development is supported by smaller, more powerful motors and improved battery technologies. “Integration is the key word,” says Michele Tittonel, R&D Coordinator at Cipollini. “The second generation of e-race bikes will be powered by electric motors fully integrated into the bike design and complemented with high-end components.”

Cipollini set out to develop one of the lightest e-race bikes in the world without compromising reliability and duration of assistance. Now the Italian bike manufacturer is introducing the new Flusso, which weighs just 10.7 kg

The Cipollini Flusso is equipped with maxon’s BIKEDRIVE Air system, which weighs just 3.5 kilograms including the battery. At its heart is a mid-mounted motor that delivers 30 Nm of torque. Thanks to a special free-wheel technology it’s easy to pedal even without electric assistance. Michele Tittonel says, “The natural feeling of riding is absolutely crucial; after all, physical effort should remain part of the experience.”

Integration of the drive is also a top priority for the Swiss bike manufacturer TRANSALPES. “With the BIKEDRIVE AIR system from maxon, we want to build perhaps the lightest e-bike for demanding mountain bikers,” as co-owner Michel Juhasz explains. “The new TRANSALPES E1 rides as naturally as a mountain bike without a motor.” TRANSALPES’ lightest e-bike, with a carbon frame, weighs less than 16 kg.

The Cipollini e-road bikes and TRANSALPES e-MTBs can be configured and pre-ordered on the manufacturers’ websites.

Motion Control – LOW COST, HIGH PERFORMANCE BRUSH AND BRUSHLESS SERVO MOTORS DESIGNED FOR LOW TORQUE RIPPLE


Trust Automation Servo Motors

Trust Automation Motion Control

San Luis Obispo, CA – Trust Automation, Inc. has introduced a new series of motion control brushed servos and two series of brushless servos that can lower the cost of new or existing applications, and improve the performance of an existing application. The integration into an existing application is easy as each motor has been designed as a, “Drop-in-Replacement.“ Additionally, each series of servo motors has been engineered to reduce torque ripple for smooth operation. Integral encoder, brake, and tachometer options make these brushed and brushless servos ideal for: Robotics, machine tools, medical equipment, assembly, and packaging applications.

Matching the right servo is easy. The SE500 series consists of eight brushed servos from 23 Watts up to 500 Watts. These motors have been designed for high performance. For example, the 5000 rpm SE540-0200 motor is rated at 200 Watts, 3.3 A continuous, and 25 A peak for greater throughput.

The SE600 series of eight low inertia brushless servos features servo motors that go from 30 Watts up to 1500 Watts and the SE700 series of twelve medium inertia brushless servos go from 50 Watts to 7000 Watts. Standard on SE600 and SE700 servos is differential Hall signals U, V, and W. Torque ripple on these 10 pole servos is only 0.3 % of rated torque.

Brushed Motors, SE500 series, come standard with 1000 line differential encoders, and Brushless Motors, SE600 and SE700 series, come standard with 2000 line differential encoders. Optional 500, 1000, 2000, and 2500 line differential encoders with A, B & Index (for brushed and brushless) are available as special order. A standard 24 Volt DC and optional 90 Volt DC fail-safe brake is available for brushed and brushless motors. Brushed motors have optional tachometers (for 110 watts and above). Oil seals are standard on all models and matching servo amplifiers are available.

Trust Automation, Inc. has focused on developing and manufacturing the highest performance servo products in the motion control market. Our innovative products address the increasing demand for higher performance and simpler machine integration.

Trust Automation’s motion control products include: Stand-alone motion and machine controllers, SynqNet I/O and SynqNet Drives, Brushed and Brushless Rotary Motors, Interconnect Products and Automation Engineering consulting covering Mechanical, Electrical, Software and System aspects of machine design.

Since 1990 Trust Automation has provided Smart Solutions in Motion Control and Affordable Customization of motion related products.
