Nanotec Electronic U.S., Inc. Posted 08/24/2017
Feldkirchen - With the DF32, Nanotec has presented a flat and very compact external rotor motor. The eight-pole brushless DC motor with a diameter of 32 mm and a height of 18 mm achieves a rated power of 7.4 W. In addition to the standard winding for 24 V with a rated speed of 2760 rpm, customer-specific windings are also possible for series applications. For this motor, the rotor position feedback is provided by hall sensors.
Using a flat ribbon cable, the DF32 can be quickly and compactly connected to a control board in series with a suitable ZIF socket strip. For test purposes, Nanotec offers an additional adapter board with normal strands.
The DF32 is suitable for a wide range of applications and is an extremely economical solution especially for large series. Compared to other external rotor motors, it particularly stands out due to its high power density.
