Whether to use a brushless DC motor (EC or also BLDC) or a brushed DC motor is mainly a technological and cost-related decision.
If the control should be uncomplicatedand the priceas lowas possible, you should choose a DC motor. The control mechanism is very simple: At a minimum, a voltage must be applied to two connections to operate the motor. Furthermore, a DC motor is usually cheaper than a comparable EC motor.
EC motors are usually more powerful and their lifespanis significantly longer due to fewer wearing parts. EC motors are quieterand due to the missing brushes, they do not produce graphite dust and brush fire. This makes an EC motor better suited for delicate environments. The activationis much more complex compared to a DC motor. Additional control electronics are required and eight wires have to be connected.
If the technological advantages of an EC motor are to be used with the simple control of the DC motor, we also offer brushless motors with integrated electronics. If you are interested in this, please contact our sales team.
