The face of modern surveying is changing. In addition to using satellites and traditional surveying equipment such as retroreflectors and optical levels, specialists use remote sensing and UAV technologies to scan the Earth’s surface. One of these technologies is Light Detection and Ranging, or LiDar. Specialists perform the sensing method remotely to examine the planet’s surface using light pulses. The instrument contains a scanner, laser and a special GPS receiver. Rather than use an airplane or helicopter, scientists are taking advantage of drone technologies imbedded with BLDC motors to keep the aircraft aloft and powered to keep costs significantly lower….
Made possible by the development of solid-state electronics in the 1960s, the brushless DC motor, or BLDC motor, is a type of synchronous electric motor that a DC power source powers. Conventional BLDC motors are available in a variety of configurations. Among the most popular are those that look like brush-type motors. The difference is that brushless motors use a wound stator that surrounds a permanent-magnet rotor—an arrangement that’s inverse from that found in brush motors. In BLDC motors, stator windings are commutated electronically instead of using a conventional commutator and brushes. Explore the latest about BLDC motors on our…
BLDC motor suppliers take advantage of the fact that BLDC motors use electronic commutation instead of brushes for commutation, making them ideally suited for manufacturing applications. The motors work well for actuation or positioning systems, as well as motion control, because of the benefits offered, such as wide speed ranges and high efficiencies.
Brushless DC motors offer accuracy and vital characteristics needed in the aerospace industry, such as the ability to withstand extreme temperatures and high shock loads.
Automobiles have undergone drastic technological changes, from the incorporation of electric ignition systems to the use of BLDC motors in various applications. Read on to learn more!
BLDC motors, or brushless DC motors, have similar speed performance and torque as brushed motors. Among BLDC motors are those with and without sensors.
This infographic examines how BLDC motors can compete with the costs of high-grade brush motors. We offer an inside look at the BLDC motor, cost savings of embedded controller BLDC motors and much more!
Companies often turn to BLDC motor manufacturers for their motion control applications because of the advantages offered over brushed motors.
While the technology behind BLDC motors isn’t new, it’s gained popularity because of the applications it has helped advance and its use in popular small appliances.
A new generation of small BLDC motors is bringing performance benefits that once only expensive servomotors offered.
