In this whitepaper from Quantum Devices, learn about a simplified method of configuring BLDC motor commutation
Motion control applications utilize encoders to translate position, or motion of a shaft or axle, to analog or digital output signals. Applications that require a brushless DC motor also require an external system to commutate the rotor and stator poles of the motor.
Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) motors use electrical commutation in combination with stators that incorporate a sequence of coils and permanent magnet rotors. Because they do not have any brushes to provide current switching, BLDC motors must rely on external controllers to provide the commutation that switches the current in the rotor coils to generate motion.
In this whitepaper from Quantum Devices, learn about how BLDC motors provide some important advantages.
