90-mm flat motor

The EC90 ultraslim BLDC motor is now equipped with a MILE (Maxon’s Inductive Little Encoder), said to be the world’s smallest inductive rotary encoder. It detects high-frequency inductivity, which generates eddy current in an electrically conducting target. The advantage of a high-frequency inductive method of measurement includes resolving up to 3,200 „impulses/turn, resistance to dust or oil vapor, and insensitivity against interference pulses as from PWM controllers or motor magnets. The motor offers 517 mNm of torque.
