maxon motor uk to showcase new underwater drives at Oceanology International 2016

12 February 2016

Today’s modern technology must be equipped to withstand extremely harsh conditions found deep in the ocean, including high pressure and high oxidation levels.

maxon motor has worked closely with research institutes and universities to provide solutions that meet the many demanding challenges for electrical and mechanical components required for underwater systems.

maxon's new underwater thrusters and actuators are oil filled and range in size from 16- to 42-millimetre diameter. The core element is a motor-gear combination based on a brushless DC-motor and a planetary gearhead. These underwater drives are designed with a high quality polymer housing to ensure protection against the harsh underwater elements. maxon’s MT-30 thruster is pressure tolerant up to 6,000 metres with oil compensation. The propeller is modified for low noise operation. Other features include: output power of 180W, Voltage of 48 and weighs slightly under 2 lbs. It is possible for maxon motor to modify the thruster assembly to customer specific requirements and there are also modified maxon control units available for use in water.
We have experts ready to discuss your underwater projects.
