Brushed DC Motors FAQ

Any outlying brushed DC motor-related questions? This FAQ section should be able to help.

A brushed DC motor is an electric motor that uses direct current to power its internal components.

It has two main parts: the stator, which holds the permanent magnets that generate a magnetic field, and the rotor, which contains a coil of wires that rotate when current passes through it. The movement of the rotor within the stator generates torque, which is then used to power the motor.

Brushed DC motors are distinguished by their use of brushes, which provide electrical contact between the rotating coil and stationary wires. This type of motor is used in many everyday applications, including fans and small appliances. They are also commonly used in industrial applications such as conveyor belts, pumps, and electric razors.

A brushed DC motor works by turning electrical energy into mechanical energy. When direct current passes through the rotor, it generates a rotating magnetic field within the stator. This rotating magnetic field interacts with the permanent magnets in the stator, causing the rotor to move. The brushes then allow current to flow through the rotor, creating a continuous cycle of motion.

Motor spin and torque can be controlled by varying the voltage passing through the system.

Yes, there are several different types of brushed DC motors. Take a look at the following breakdown for a general overview.

  • Ironless-Rotor Motors: As the name implies, these coreless DC motors do not have an iron core in their rotor, creating a lower winding inductance and reduced levels of sparking between the brush and commutator. They are generally used in applications where high-torque, low speed or low noise is required.
  • Iron-Rotor Motors: These motors have an iron core within their rotor, which provides a quicker response time than their ironless counterparts. These are ideal for applications where motor speed is a priority.
  • Torque Motors: Torque motors have an extra winding on the rotor, which allows them to produce higher torque than other types of brushed DC motors. They are used primarily in applications where precise control and high levels of torque are needed, such as robotics and automation.

Brushed DC motors are used in a variety of applications, from small fans and appliances to larger industrial machines. Often compared with servo motors, they are most commonly found in consumer electronics. This includes electric razors and toothbrushes, as well as in medical equipment, robotics, and automation.

They are also used extensively in the automotive industry, in everything from windshield wipers to car starters.

Many brushed DC motors are also used in power tools, such as drills and saws. This type of motor is especially popular for these applications due to its ability to provide high torque at a low price point.

Brushed DC motors and brushless DC motors both use direct current to turn electrical energy into mechanical energy, but they differ in how they produce this energy. Brushed DC motors use brushes to create electrical contact between the rotor and stationary wires, allowing current to flow through the rotor and generate torque.

Brushless DC units use powerful rare earth magnets instead of brushes to create a rotating magnetic field. This makes them quieter and more efficient than brushed DC motors – but they are also more expensive and require an electronic driver module to function.
