Ultra-compact brushless DC motor now with gearboxes and integrated controller

Dunkermotoren's ultra-compact BGA 22 Ironless brushless DC motor is now available with a suitable gearbox, encoder and controller. This BGA 22x22 dCore option benefits from the ironless, BGA axial flow design and provides users with advantages such as; zero-cogging torque, low vibration and low audible noise.

In addition to the motor, there is a four quadrant controller, BGE 6005 with CANopen interface which can supply currents up to 5A. Furthermore, the RE22 encoder is offered with a choice of 256 or 360ppr and is sized to match the existing BGA 22 motor diameter for ease of mounting.

For simple applications, Dunkermotoren offers the BGA 22 dGo version with integrated electronics and functions such as change of direction, start/stop, speed set input and speed output signal. The PLG 22 and PLG 24 are the two planetary gearboxes offered which provide a nominal torque of up to 1.5Nm.

Measuring 22mm in diameter and weighing 63g the BGA 22 3-phase brushless DC motors deliver up to 50% more power than comparably sized brushless DC motors and are suited for low noise applications.

They support low nominal speed and are suited to medical, pharmaceutical or aviation motion control applications. For example, powering small pumps in micro-fluidic handling systems, or wherever optimum flexibility or up-scaling is required.
