Ventilators save lives by providing artificial respiratory support in seriously ill patients until they regain the ability to breathe on their own. The novel coronavirus pandemic of 2020 has brought unprecedented attention to the need for ventilators that can be manufactured quickly and affordably and are easy to maintain, yet offer the precise control required for any patient and any clinical situation.

Our Powermax NEMA 23 stepper motors are ideal for use in ventilators, providing the ability to precisely control the pressure, volume and rate of breathing oscillations without the need for an encoder and feedback circuit. These motors are agency-certified for use in medical equipment (CE, UL Recognized), with off-the-shelf models available for immediate delivery. We can also rapidly prototype and produce customized motors to meet your specifications, in virtually any quantities you need.
