The Motomate brushless motor features compact size, convenience, and easy programmability. Designed with an integral controller, the motor provides an all-in-one solution for a wide range of applications where programmable movement of simple mechanisms is required. The motor incorporates the company's built-in Milleneum2 controller, brushless motor drive, motor, and gearbox in a compact 2-1/2? × 6? package. The brushless motor features a high motor efficiency of 90% compared to asynchronous motors of only 40% and a high starting torque given its compact size. With the power electronics incorporated directly inside the motor, the need for an external speed controller is eliminated, optimizing space for tight product designs.
