Modern drive solutions for automation call for customised motors. Modular systems with configurable modules for customised drive design are the appropriate solution. For years, ebm-papst with its modern ECI motor family has been offering a broad selection of drives, control electronics, gearboxes and brake and sensor modules that can be combined for tailored drive solutions. Now ebm-papst is expanding the existing range of motors from 30 to 63 mm diameter and powers from 30 to 400 W with a new power level: the ECI 80 with 80 mm diameter (Fig. 1) now offers rated drive power of up to 750 W in a compact design for demanding applications in robotics, conveyor, warehouse and sorting systems, medical equipment or battery-driven vehicles and driverless transportation systems.
