Brushless DC Motors integrate drive electronics.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring 3.0 in. OD and 2-wire electrical hookup, 12 V/24 V DurA-Tek® Motors achieve continuous torque from 19.7-55 oz-in. and speeds from 2,927-4,400 rpm, depending on model. Smart onboard motor controls and electronic design deliver multi-speed operation, over-current control, locked-rotor protection, reverse polarity protection, transient over-voltage protection, and over-temperature shutoff. Motors resist hot-water spray, rain, humidity, salt, fog, shock, and vibration.

Original Press Release:

Dura-Tek® Brushless DC Motors from Ametek® Integrate Drive Electronics

DurA-Tek® brushless DC motors available from AMETEK® Technical & Industrial Products feature integrated drive electronics enabling enhanced motor controllability in a smaller, lighter package. Their 3.0-inch outside motor diameter and standard 2-wire electrical hookup further allow them to replace similarly sized brush-commutated DC motors while delivering relatively higher performance and extended service life.

These motors ideally suit demanding high-duty cycle applications for equipment used in the transportation industry. Applications expand into HVAC, chemical, mining, medical/biotech, data storage, semiconductor processing, automation, and other industries that can benefit from compact and rugged motor construction. For harsh environments these motors have been designed to resist hot-water spray, rain, humidity, salt, fog, shock, and vibration.

"Smart" onboard motor controls and advanced electronic design deliver key features, including multi-speed operation; over-current control; locked-rotor protection; reverse polarity protection; transient over-voltage protection; and over-temperature shutoff.

These 12V/24V brushless DC motors can achieve continuous torque from 19.7 oz.-in. to 55 oz.-in. and speeds from 2927 RPM to 4400 RPM, depending on model. Custom product can be engineered.
