What is a Brushless DC Gearmotor?   

Brushless DC gearmotors or geared motors were originally developed to solve certain performance issues inherent with conventional brushed DC motors. The ZD brushless DC gearmotor, for example, is smaller and lighter than similar brushed versions, and yet generates less noise and has a longer service life. Brushed vs Brushless DC Motors Brushed DC motors are quite an old technology, invented as they were in the 19th century. They are still common, although the newer brushless DC motor designs became possible in the 1960s after the development of solid state electronics. The difference between the two motors is the sliding mechanical commutator contact used by the brushed DC motor. In the brushless version, it is replaced with an electronic servo system […]
