Maxon gearheads come in an array of styles. Some gearheads offer noise or backlash reduction, while others have a ceramic configuration. The gearheads are available in different gear stages, varying from two, three, or even five stages. The reduction provided by the gearheads ranges from 35:1 to 1526:1 per gearhead for the final stage. The final piece of the Maxon drive is the encoder, which comes in two different sizes—an ENX 10 or 16—and in either easy, quad, or absolute configurations. The encoder counts the number turns performed by the drive.
