A rover looking for life on Mars, a robot exploring lunar caves, and a probe flying very close to the sun: the latest edition of driven, the maxon motor magazine, is dedicated to exciting space missions and shows the brutal conditions under which DC motors must operate.
Alien yet fascinating, our solar system is full of mysteries just waiting to be uncovered. The latest edition of the magazine driven, now available, deals entirely with outer space. Learn everything about the planned robot missions to Mars, the Google race to the moon, and the risky journey to the sun. You can also read about how maxon prepares its drives for the tough conditions in space at its in-house laboratory, and about the technologies that are going to enhance the International Space Station (ISS) in the future.
Also: which DC motor is the right one for your application? By means of an example, driven explains what aspects you have to consider when selecting a drive.
