Coreless DC Motor Advantages of Coreless DC Coreless DC Motor


Technology Motors Applications
Coreless DC motors differ from Allied Motion’s Coreless DC motors Here are a few applications that
traditional DC motors in significant have desirable attributes that make benefit from the inherent advantages
ways. The most obvious and them an excellent choice for many of coreless DC motors:
important difference is the rotor applications:
winding. Medical Equipment
• Coreless rotor technology means • Dialysis peristaltic and gear pumps
Instead of coils wound around a stack smooth, cog-free operation
of iron laminations, the coil is formed • Ambulatory infusion pumps
• Low inertia rotor provides fast
as a thin hollow cylinder (item 1 acceleration compared to ironcore • CPAP centrifugal blowers
above). DC motors • Lab centrifuges, shakers and stirrers
The stator with its permanent • Lighter weight than ironcore DC • X-ray shutter positioning drive
magnets (item 2) supplies the motors
magnetic field flux and fits in the Banking and Office Automation:
• No iron loss means higher
hollow center of the winding. It’s • Card readers
efficiency (up to 85% versus 50%
rigidly affixed to the outside motor
for ironcore) for lower heat rise • ATM machine cash dispensers
housing (item 6), which completes
and longer battery life • Coin counters / sorters
the magnetic circuit. The rotor is
supported by bearings (items 5) and • Zero detent and low ripple torque
Other
rotates around the magnetic core. (<1.5%) for precision speed control
• Airplane entertainment system LCD
• Low starting voltage (0.3 V) for screen positioners
Coreless DC motors are usually small
accurate low speed operation
in size, ranging from 6 mm (0.24") to • High-end audio turntable motors
less than 75 mm (3") in diameter. • Low inductance means extended
Continuous power is normally limited brush and commutator life • Police / emergency tape recorders
to 250 Watts or less. • Low time constant (typically 10 ms) • Entrance door, window, and
means sharper response capability window shade automatic operators
They are a preferred choice for many
medical devices, small pumps, and • Ticket printing/dispensing
document handling/dispensing • Security camera pan and tilt drives
equipment.
• Laser leveling system drives
