Brushed Mini Motors

15:09:56The uniqueness of brushed mini motors lies in their design and functionality. The incorporation of powerful permanent magnets and an innovative ironless rotor design minimizes the mass moment of inertia, a critical factor that enables these motors to achieve very high acceleration.

This feature is particularly beneficial for applications requiring rapid speed changes or precise control over movement.

Brushed Mini Motor Key Features:

  • High Acceleration: The low mass moment of inertia allows for quick response times and high acceleration, making these motors highly dynamic.
  • Low Electromagnetic Interference: Maxon's brushed mini motors are designed to produce minimal electromagnetic interference, an essential attribute for sensitive applications where interference could be detrimental.
  • Efficient Energy Conversion: The low inductance of these motors ensures efficient conversion of electrical energy into mechanical motion, enhancing their overall performance.
  • Predictable Performance: The remarkable linearity in the relationship between voltage and speed, as well as load and current, makes these motors exceptionally reliable and predictable in their operation.

Brushed Mini Motor Appicaitons:

Brushed mini motors are best suited for applications where precision, rapid movements, and reliability are crucial. Their high acceleration capabilities and efficient performance make them ideal for:

  • Robotic systems where precise and agile movements are required.
  • Medical devices that demand high reliability and interference-free operation.
  • Portable electronic devices where compactness and efficiency are valued.
  • Automotive applications that benefit from the motor's quick response and reliability.
