NEMA 17 Brushless DC Motors from Lin Engineering

Santa Clara, CA- April 2007 - Lin Engineering is pleased to announce the release of their new line of NEMA 17 Brushless DC (BLDC) motors. These motors are best for applications where high speed and high dynamic torque are a must for the user's application.

Lin's NEMA 17 BLDC's provide extremely quiet and smooth operation regardless of speed range, although the optimal performance speed range is 300RPM to 3000RPM. These are also great for those who prefer velocity control with an analog input, do not need holding torque and may be having reliability issues with an existing Brush DC motor. BLDC's are also a good choice for applications that do not have a lot of power and require a higher efficiency motor.

Lin's NEMA 17 BLDC's are available in four stack lengths: 1.61", 2.40", 3.19", and 3.94". Depending upon the stack length, these motors are able to produce up to 106 oz-in of peak torque.
