Maxon Motor has developed a robust
brushless DC motor for hand-held surgical
tools: the EC-4pole 30. Featuring two pole
pairs, this DC motor provides a nominal
torque of 106mNm and an output of
150W. It has a hermetically sealed rotor,
meaning that it can withstand over 1,000
autoclave cycles. The EC-4pole 30 is
equipped with the special ironless Maxon
winding, which makes it highly efficient.
The torque and current behave linearly and
the drive can be overloaded. It is available
with an optional Hall sensor, as well as with
a hollow shaft with a diameter of up to
4.1mm. With the EC-4pole 30, engineers
get a first-class drive for surgical hand tools
that work flawlessly under the tough conditions of operating rooms.

New Options for Handheld
OKW has extended
its MINITEC range
of plastic hand-held enclosures
by adding a USB
Type A intermediate ring and a
belt strap eyelet.
Cases can be worn
on lanyards, hand
and wrist straps, or attached to a belt or
key ring. They are available in two shapes:
rectangular EDGE (E) or the more rounded
DROP (D). The new USB Type A interme-
diate ring has been designed for medi-
um-sized MINITEC EDGE (EM) enclosures
while the belt strap eyelet fits large EDGE
(EL) cases. Top and bottom sections are
molded predominantly from ABS (UL 94
HB) but infrared-permeable PMMA Plexiglas is available for remote control applications. Intermediate rings can be specified in
ABS or soft touch SEBS (TPE) which also
offers added protection from impact.

A unique button design on the 1/16 DIN
product, with the buttons at the left and
right of the digits on the keypad, allows
an 0.7in. upper digit and 0.4in. lower digit
height in a 1.8in. high device. The larger digits offer increased clarity and visibility from
a distance to view vital process information
and alarm messages that help ensure a
system is running effectively. An equally
impressive 3. 7 × 1.8in. unit is also available,
with 0.7in. digits upper and lower.
