They are also desirable for settings where brush dust contamination is to be avoided or brush contact arcing could affect electronically sensitive equipment.

Brushless DC gearmotors are cost-effective, compact, and long lasting, and offer several advantages over brushed DC motors, including:

  • Virtually maintenance free; lubricated and sealed for life
  • Extremely configurable; several shaft configurations and custom options available
  • High efficiency, further enhanced with quiet helical and hypoid gearing
  • Very safe 12-48VDC motors with a wide speed control range.

The new brushless motors are designed to work with an OEM’s own design drive or standard brushless drives from Brother with features such as adjustable acceleration, deceleration, open or closed loop operation, current limiting and other performance and safety features.
