Sensored vs Sensorless Brushless Motor Applications

Sensored Brushless Motor Setup

How a Sensored vs Sensorless Brushless Motor Works A brushless motor receives power from the electronic speed control. (ESC) The speed control must know the position of the rotor in order to accelerate the motor from zero RPM smoothly. When it does not know the position of the rotor, the ESC must determine it. The …

Brushless Motor Cogging Explained – Not what you may think!

Cogging in Brushless Motors used in RC

Brushless DC motors used in radio control applications contain windings just like every other electric motor. However, what is more unique about them verse an AC induction motor, is that they contain a permanent magnet. The permanent magnet in the brushless motor has the opportunity to interact with the make up of the winding section …

All about RC Brushless Motor Windings

Only a 2.5 Turn on a Brushless Inrunner

Every Brushless motor has a series of windings that are an essential part of its operation. The windings in a brushless motor are considered a core item withing the motor. The purpose of the motor windings is to produce a magnetic field controlled by an electronic speed control to interact with the permanent magnets causing …

How to extend ESC wires correctly

Extending ESC wires can harm the ESC if not done correctly. We explained the sort of phenomenon that is responsible for the troubles. That can be found here in an article titled, “Why extending ESC wires can be harmful.”  Bottom line is that the inductance of the battery input wires can destroy your ESC. You …
