Can DC motors be used at high temperatures?
Those familiar with the maxon catalog and technical specifications will have noticed that maximum ambient and winding temperatures are specified for our motors.
Why is this?
Battling COVID-19 One Pump at a Time
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Winnipeg Ventilator project had to make some critical choices in design and component selection, particularly for the motor used in the mechanical pump design.
“The transition to brushless dc motors was key"
Samir Bouabdallah is an expert in drone technology and founder of an exciting startup. How will the drone market develop, in his opinion, and what is required of the motors in the flying robots?
Delta vs Y Winding Arrangements
Although, the winding arrangement does not play a pivotal role in one’s motor selection, it is valuable information to be aware of.
