Motion Solutions for Medical and Surgical Applications
Portescap’s brushless DC, brush DC, and flat motors are designed to thrive in the most challenging of environments, easily providing the high speeds, efficiency, and precision that are critical to medical applications. Our motor accessories, customization options, and availability of Engineer-to-Engineer collaboration ensure that your motor will meet – and exceed – all necessary requirements.
Frameless Motor Capabilities
The frameless motor meshes Portescap's extensive experience in motion control with the latest demands from surgical robotic developers. This new capacity for providing un-housed rotors and stators is a direct result of recognizing that robot developers require the greatest flexibility and control to minimize weight and space while simultaneously optimizing performance. These motors are especially ideal for robotic joints and control axes that demand precise servo-driven movement.

Extended Life Motor Capabilities
Our extended life motor is designed to outperform in extremely harsh medical environments, including saline, autoclave, and dishwasher, as well as in surgical hand tool applications.
The M-Sense12A magnetic encoder is the first autoclavable encoder to join Portescap’s product portfolio. Optimized specifically for surgical robotic applications, the M-Sense12A has been designed to survive 2,000+ sterilization cycles and is fully compatible with Portescap’s existing surgical motor portfolio. This encoder can provide incremental and absolute feedback and features a wide resolution range up to 1024 lines, as well as accuracy up to 1.5 degrees. It is also able to work accurately at high input speeds, with a maximum input speed of 120k RPM at 1024 lines/rev in incremental mode.
The CNT2440 is fully capable of surviving up to 1,000 sterilization cycles and features a sensorless drive, fulfilling the need for sterilizable controller options within the surgical market. This controller is fully compatible with Portescap’s brushless DC slotted and brushless DC slotless range of sterilizable motors. It has a rated voltage up to 24V and a rated current up to 40 amps, providing a power rating of 960 watts. The CNT2440 can also be programmed based on a specific application’s requirements, including travel range, braking requirements, and trigger features.
When you need high power density and exceptional performance in a flat compact motion package, we've got the technology for you: Portescap's Brushless Flat Motors! Delivering speeds up to 10,000 rpm, diameters as small as 20mm and as large as 90mm, a lower cost of ownership, and extensive customizability, our flat motors will meet - even surpass - your needs.
