Brushless DC motors, or BLDC motors, continue to increase in popularity in industrial applications because of the numerous advantages they offer over their brushed DC motor counterparts. BLDC motor manufacturers commonly build motors for electronics, medical applications, computers, HVAC equipment, and automotive applications. In the industrial engineering industry, brushless DC motors are frequently used for automation and manufacturing engineering applications that improve overall productivity and quality. Brushed and Brushless DC Motor Differences Brushed DC motors use an iron core, commutator, and wire coils mounted to the same shaft. These elements are made of metal, which makes them heavy and likely…
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.
A new generation of small BLDC motors is bringing performance benefits that once only expensive servomotors offered.
While embedded controller BLDC motors are initially more expensive than high-quality brush motors, they end up being more cost efficient when one considers the direct and indirect savings.
As the market moves away from brushed DC motors to BLDC motors, it is imperative to weigh the options of both in order to find the best fit for your application.
The latest applications to take advantage of the benefits of BLDC motors are capacitive-sensing technologies that use capacitive touch switches, like elevator buttons, digital calipers and MP3 players.
The brushless DC motor is increasing in popularity because of its long lifespan, increased stability and efficiency. With the help of optical encoders, BLDC motors can meet the precise design requirements that you seek.
Electric motors account for up to 50 percent of the energy used in U.S. commercial buildings, 60 percent of the energy used in U.S. industrial buildings and about 45 p ercent of the total global energy consumption. To help curb energy use, more industries are integrating brushless DC motors into their systems, particularly those in the HVAC industry. What is a BLDC Motor? There are two basic types of motors: those with brushes and those without. BLDC, or brushless, motors don’t have carbon brushes or commutators, which can cause premature wear and tear. Instead, they use a controller board to…

Brushless motors are a hot commodity in the automotive industry, as well as for robotic and medical applications. By knowing the differences that BLDC motors and brush DC motors offer, you can make an educated decision about the best type for your application. Brush DC Motor Efficiencies Cost: Brushed DC motors are generally less expensive than their brushless counterparts. Simple control: The motors have a two-wire control and need little to no control in fixed-speed designs. Magnet placement: In brushless motors, the magnets are in the rotor. This means that connections, a commutator and brushes aren’t needed because of the…
