C-Series

The Airex C-Series motors provide a low overall height and are ideal for compact or micro stages. Airex linear motors are thinner than most of our competitors’ motors, but still offer you top performance and superior settling.

  • The Airex C10 is the industry’s most-precise, ultra-low profile ironless linear motor, offering high performance within a thin 10.2 mm (.4”) profile
  • Excellent position control for low force applications
  • Low time constant enables great velocity control
  • Superior point-to-point settling time due to our patented coil technology
  • Lowest height model in the motor family
  • Continuous forces up to 33.6N (7.6 lb), peak forces up to 67 N (15.1 lb)
  • Ideal for profiling, wafer inspection and low force, constant velocity applications
  • Thin 12.8 mm (0.5”) profile, offering excellent control at low velocity and superior point-to-point settling time due to our patented coil technology
  • Reduced magnetic flux leakage
  • Improved thermal path allows increased continuous power operation
  • Low-profile design ideal for use in miniature equipment
  • Continuous forces up to 40.9N (9.2 lb), peak forces up to 82N (18.4 lb
  • Highest force option in C-Series family
  • Thin 3mm (0.5”) profile
  • 13 x 64 mm cross-section
  • Superior point-to-point settling time due to our patented coil technology
  • High-force motor with low-profile design
  • Continuous forces up to 71.4N (16 lb), peak forces up to 143N (32.1 lb)

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 pre-specified delta or wye connection and thermal sensor connection. 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.
