maxon motors "driven " contest driven ”, applications in the field of communication take center stage. For example, the magazine reveals which function the maxon drive systems have in professional SLR cameras or how it is possible to produce top quality films at lofty heights with the aid of brushless maxon flat motors. Glancing at the stars, we examine how artificial stars are created by means of modern projection systems.

After a detailed review of the drive requirements, the original drives were replaced with Ramsey 3/8"Pitch by 1 inch wide RPV silent chain...
Beginning in the early '90s, however, two developments overcame this barrier. First, Jerry Nelson, of Lick Observatory in San Jose, figured out how to assemble big mirrors from small hexagonal segments. To keep the segments aligned, he used dozens of tiny computer-controlled actuators, or pistons...
In the summer of 2012, the Hobby-Eberly Telescope will start scanning the universe - aided by maxon motors every step of the way. The Hobby-Eberly Telescope (HET) is located at the McDonald Observatory in West Texas. Its spherical primary mirror consists of 91 identical hexagonal segments, each one meter...
