Buying Guide

A brushless DC motor (BLDC) is a synchronous motor that uses a DC power source. The brushless DC motor is essentially a permanent magnet synchronous motor with position feedback that uses a DC power input and uses an inverter to convert it into a three-phase AC power supply.

There are various types of motors, and brushless DC motors are the most ideal speed-regulated motors today. It has a simple structure, no commutation sparks, smooth operation and easy maintenance. Therefore, it is very popular in the market and is widely used in automobiles, home appliances, industrial equipment and other fields.

1. Why Choose a Brushless DC Motor?

BLDC motor buying guide

  • Quiet motor operation
    Friction and arcing between the brushes and commutator plate in a brushed motor can produce a lot of motor noise. In a brushless motor, commutation is performed by an electronic circuit, so operation is much quieter.
  • Less heat generated by the motor
    In addition to generating sound, the friction between the brushes and commutator plates in a brushed motor generates a lot of heat. This can be a serious problem in many applications. In a brushless motor, the only friction occurs in the rotor bearings. This means that heat generation is much less of a problem in a brushless motor.
  • Higher motor efficiency
    This is a particularly important advantage of brushless motors. The sound and heat generated by a brush motor essentially represent the power loss of the device, taking energy away from the rotor itself - which will be used to drive the load. In a brushless motor, the sound and heat generated are greatly reduced, resulting in a significant increase in efficiency.
  • Longer motor life
    Brushes in brush motors wear out with use because they are in constant contact with the commutator - it's only a matter of time before they need to be replaced. Brushless motors do not face this problem, which greatly reduces maintenance requirements and can be implemented in a range of applications where brushes cannot be replaced, such as in satellite communications equipment in outer space.
  • The better motor power-to-weight ratio
    Fewer mechanical parts mean that brushless motors have a lower mass than brushed motors. The result: brushless motors offer better power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios than brushed motors.
  • Wide application range and good control effect
    The brushless motor has a controller (driver), which can realize simple to complex control and can realize various communication requirements (485, CAN, etc.) so that in addition to meeting some conventional mechanical actions, it can also perform complex control commands. And with the widespread use of magnetic encoders in recent years, it can replace some simple servo applications.

2. What are BLDC Motors Used for?

BLDC motors

For Industrial Applications: For industrial applications, 12V~96V brushless DC motors are mainly used for servo, drive, positioning and variable speed, where precise motion control and stable operation are critical to the operation of manufacturing or industrial processes. The most common industrial uses for BLDC motors are linear motors, servo motors, actuators for industrial robots, extruder drive motors, and feed drives for CNC machine tools.

For Aerospace: The main applications of BLDC motors in the aerospace field are robotic arm control, gyroscope and rudder drive, etc. These applications generally require good high-speed and high-precision control and dynamic response, so the corresponding systems use closed-loop speed feedback control, and most of them use advanced process control algorithms.

For Robots: With advances in robotics, brushless DC motors have become the most popular drive and retention device. They are used for many reasons, such as efficiency, low thermal operation and compact construction. But the most important advantage is the precise control achieved by brushless motors, which helps produce accurate robotic systems and devices.

For Automation: Due to their simple structure, stable operation and good speed regulation performance, brushless DC motors are increasingly used in the automotive field. In addition to being the core component of car drives, motors can also be used to drive car air conditioners, wipers, electric doors, airbags, electric seats, etc. Motor drive technology for automotive air conditioners and home air conditioner compressors is similar. Air conditioner compressors driven by brushless DC motors will develop towards more energy efficient and more comfortable full DC inverters. Therefore, the brushless DC motor will become the mainstream direction of the development of speed regulation technology and will be more and more widely used in all aspects of the automotive motor drive.

For Electric Cars: Before the introduction of the latest electric cars, BLDC motors were used in windshield wipers, CD players and power windows. Today's automakers use three different types of motors in their vehicles: BLDC motors, brushed DC motors, and AC induction motors. The composition of the BLDC motor also allows the vehicle's internal machinery to remain cooler and heat resistant. In addition, because the motor is brushless, there are no dangerous brush sparks.

BLDC motors have a permanent magnet rotor surrounded by a wire-wound stator. The windings in the stator are electronically commutated rather than using brushes. This makes BLDC motors:

  • Easier to maintain.
  • More durable and smaller.
  • 85%-90% more efficient.
  • Capable of faster response at higher operating speeds.
  • Easier to control in terms of speed control and reverse.
  • Less prone to the failures experienced with brushed motors and the ability to self-start.

For Medical Equipment: The surgery requires the power system of orthopedic medical equipment to be able to continuously vary the speed in a wide range to meet the requirements of various occasions such as milling, drilling and sawing. The existing drive motors for orthopedic medical devices are single-phase AC/DC series excitation motors and voltage regulators, which are very noisy.

The presence of brushes and commutators makes preoperative sterilization impossible and has an impact on surgical results. Regular brush replacement and motor maintenance are required. A Brushless DC motor does not have the above-mentioned hidden problems. As a driving system, it is undoubtedly the best choice for medical devices because of its low noise, wide range of speed regulation, small size and lightweight.

The motor controller is an integrated circuit that controls the motor to work in the set direction, speed, angle and response time by active operation. In electric vehicles, the role of the motor controller is to convert the electrical energy stored in the power battery into the electrical energy required to drive the motor according to the command of gear, throttle and brake, so as to control the starting operation, forward and backward. The speed and climbing force of the electric vehicle, or help the electric vehicle brake and store part of the braking energy in the power battery. It is one of the key components of electric vehicles.

7. How to Choose the Right BLDC Motor Controller?

  • Choose a controller that matches the type of motor. For example, DC brushed, DC brushless, square wave or sine wave, Hall sensor or no Hall sensor.
  • Before choosing the BLDC controller, observe whether the marked motor power is rated power or maximum power. If it is rated power, you can choose the matching motor controller by 2-3 times the rated power. For example, if the motor is marked with a rated power of 650W and a voltage of 48V, you should choose the rated voltage of 48V and the maximum output power of 1.3KW~2KW motor controller. If the maximum power is marked, you can choose a motor with less power.
  • Match the motor parameters. Take a high-torque DC brushless motor as an example, with or without Hall, a square wave controller does not need to match special parameters. If the Hall sine controller has speed output, it needs to match the parameters such as the number of motor pole pairs and speed. When matching a Hall-less sine wave, parameters such as phase inductance, phase resistance, number of pole pairs and maximum motor speed need to be known.  If you purchased a 48V BLDC motor, a matching 48V brushless motor controller is recommended.
