The Airex C16 Ironless Linear Motor offers precision and high performance within a thin 13mm (0.5”) profile. The magnet track is supplied with counter-bored through holes, while, the motor coil has provision for either side or top mount. A high flex 5-conductor shielded cable provides connections for your specified delta or wye connected three-phase motor coil. Thermal monitoring is included via a specified PTC or NTC thermistor. The motor coil is available with four modular coil lengths, each longer length offering increased force and power ratings.


  • Compact Design: 13mm (0.5”) width. Coil length in increments of 61mm (2.4").
  • Standard magnet track lengths 7.2", 9.6" and 12". Custom lengths available.
  • Continuous forces up to 71.4N (16lbf), peak forces up to 143N (32.1lbf).
  • Ironless zero-cogging design provides lowest velocity ripple for smoothest velocity and position control.
  • No maintenance, non-contact brushless design & zero magnetic preload.
  • High accuracy & repeatability, zero backlash, fast settling times
  • Custom options (thermal sensors, cabling, vacuum/clean room quality) available
  • Simple installation – top/side mount coil and side mount tracks
  • Available in Delta or WYE connections.
  • Ideal for:
    • Electronic Assembly & Test applications
