The “EC-16” sterilizible brushless motors deliver the performance and lifetime of a brushless motor in a sterilizible package. By assembling the motor such that the coils are outside the rotor, good heat dissipation and high overload capability is attained. Steam sterilization is specified at 134°C at up to 2.3 bar for 20 minutes. Motor can be sterilized at least 100 times in an autoclave. The motor diameter is 16 mm while the length is 56 mm. Continuous output power is 40 watts, while maximum speed is 50,000 RPM. Maximum continuous torque is up to 12.6 mNm depending on the winding.
