Portescap's new Athlonix 16mm diameter brushed DC motors are now available from Mclennan. They combine the substantial power density and cost-effective characteristics of its proven DCP line for demanding miniature power transmission applications where high torque, high efficiency and exacting speed regulation are critical factors.

The 16DCP series is offered with a choice of precious metal or graphite brush commutation in an optimised energy-efficient coreless design featuring a self-supporting coil and a powerful Alnico magnetic circuit - enabling higher load carrying capacity with a minimum reduction in speed when compared to competitive 16 mm diameter motors. This means more uniform power and smoother speed control for applications such as medical and industrial pumps, clinical, dentistry and commercial hand-operated power tools, security and access equipment, and gas analysers.

At just 24 mm nominal length, the 16DCP includes four standard windings up to 12VDC for precious metal commutated version with a maximum continuous torque of up to 2.63mNm and speeds up to 10,000rpm. The graphite commutated version includes seven winding options up to 24VDC and features a constant force spring brush design that extends its working life. The company's well-proven 'REE' feature prolongs the lifespan for both commutation versions by reducing winding electro erosion. The modular design of the 16DCP allows customisation with fast turnaround of samples for shaft lengths, special coils, cabling, connectors and bearings.
