# Your question: How do I choose a brushless motor?

Contents

The physical size of a particular brushless motor is usually indicated by a number that looks like this – ’22-05′. The first number, 22, indicates how wide the motor is whilst the second number, 05, indicates the hight. Usually, these are written on the motor casing themselves to show you how wide and high they are.

## How do you size a brushless motor?

Typically the best place to start when sizing a brushless DC motor is matching motor size (diameter, length). Diameter ranges from 13 mm to 30 mm. Brushless DC slotted motor diameter and length are specified in inches.

## How do I choose a brushless DC motor?

The key to rating a BLDC motor is torque. This particular design is rated at 6.9 inch-pounds of torque and like all brushless DC motors, the maximum torque rating is independent of speed. The only limitation is that when the speed is lower than 300 rpm, cogging may occur with the motor.

## Is a higher Kv motor better?

Generally speaking the more Kv a motor has, the more RPM and more power. For example, a 9000Kv motor would be faster than a 2200Kv motor. … A higher turn number means more wire and thus more resistance, resulting in a slower motor. So turns with a lower number means a faster motor.

## What is Kv rating on brushless motors?

The Kv rating of a brushless motor is the ratio of the motor’s unloaded rpm to the peak voltage on the wires connected to the coils. Knowing the Kv rating of a motor will help you determine how fast that motor will rotate when a given voltage is applied to it.

## What is a 540 size motor?

Those numbers refer to the motor diameter. 540 has a diameter of 36mm. 380 has a diameter ~28mm. 280 has a diameter of 24mm.

## How does a PMDC motor work?

The magnetic field is established by using a magnet. You can use different types of magnets – it may be an electromagnet or it can be a permanent magnet. A Permanent Magnet DC motor (PMDC motor) is a type of DC motor that uses a permanent magnet to create the magnetic field required for the operation of a DC motor.

## Why do brushless motors have 3 wires?

there are 3 wires because it’s a 3 phase brushless system. at any given time two provide power and the other is a sensor. So even though they may split their time doing each, at a split second in time two provide power and the third is a sensor.

## Are Tesla motors brushless?

Today, all the hybrids are powered by DC brushless drives, with no exceptions. The only notable uses of induction drives have been the General Motors EV-1; the AC Propulsion vehicles, including the tzero; and the Tesla Roadster. Both DC brushless and induction drives use motors having similar stators.

## How do I choose the right ESC?

Current Rating. The first thing to look at when choosing ESC is the current rating, which is measured in Amps. Motors draw current when they spin, if you draw more Amps than your ESC can handle, it will start to overheat and eventually fail. A catastrophic failure can even end up with your ESC in flames!

## Can you use any brushless ESC with any brushless motor?

Short answer is no. Not all brushless esc’s are compatible with all brushless motors.

## How do I choose a kV motor?

The KV value can be determined by the number of copper wire windings on the stator. Generally the higher number of winds decreases the KV of the motor, while lower number of winds increases the KV. The magnetic strength of the magnets can also affect the KV value, stronger magnets will increase KV.

## How many KV is a 8.5 turn motor?

A Novak 8.5 “turn” is rated at 5000 KV but another manufactures 8.5 may be different as most do not post their KV rating.

## What does 12T mean on RC Motors?

Twelve turns around each motor pole using triple wires. Three wires are would twelve times around the pole. A 12T double would use two wires wound twelve times and a 12T single a single thicker wire wound twelve times around each rotor pole.
