20A/40V Integrated Power Module for DC Brushless Motors (BLDC)
This project is based on STK984-090A which is a fully-integrated inverter with current rating 20A and supply voltage 40V DC. It has been designed to drive the Brushless DC Motors (BLDC) and permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM), the module works as output driver which include power...Continue Reading
DC slotless motor runs at up to 40,000 rpm
Portescap has expanded its Ultra EC range of brushless DC slotless motors with the introduction of a ultra-high speed 2 pole motor, the 35ECS. The 35mm diameter slotless motor draws up to 330W max imum in continuous operation and sustains speeds up to 40,000 rpm. The new design comes...Continue Reading
PCB Motor – A smaller and cheaper brushless motor.
by Carl Bugeja @ hackaday.io designed a brushless motor using a 3D printer and a 4-layer PCB. He writes: The PCB motor is my solution for trying to design a smaller, cheaper and easier to assemble brushless motor. The motor's stator is a 6 spiral PCB coil in a star configuration....Continue Reading
ODrive – High performance motor control
Oskar Weigl @ hackaday.io designed a brushless motor controller able to drive 2 motors. Hobby brushless motors are incredibly cheap and powerful. However we need a way to make robots out of them. ODrive is that way. Stepper motors are ubiquitous in hobby robotics projects: If you...Continue Reading
