EC 4-Pole Motors for Moon Rovers

During the nine-month development of Andy, the rover designed for cave hunting on the moon, the developers and students at Pittsburgh University focused on building a rover that is economical and practical, using standard components wherever possible.

The teams had to demonstate that their rovers function under vacuum conditions and in the harsh environment of the moon. The rover Andy impressively showcased these abilities in many tests.

The four wheels are driven by brushless maxon EC 4-pole motors with GP 32 HD planetary gearheads. To withstand the conditions in space, small modifications were made on the drives, for example, to the lubricant and the switch boards.

The team values maxon motor’s extensive experience with space projects.
