Ventura, CA – ThinGap LLC announces the 14-in. TG14010 Brushless DC Ring Motor for direct drive motor applications. The TG14010 delivers smooth and controllable high speed/high shaft power without a gearbox. A high power-to-weight ratio makes it ideal for direct drive ducted-fan applications in unmanned aerial vehicles and hub-mounted motors for unmanned ground vehicles.
The TG14010 supplies 50 ft-lbs peak torque from a 3.7-in. length by 13.55-in. diameter package that weighs only 23 lbs. Very smooth and controllable acceleration and deceleration have been realized by eliminating hysteresis and cogging. System efficiency of up to 82% can be achieved with the TG14010.
The TG14010 provides a low-profile platform that is quiet, cool running, and conserves energy with a gyroscopic effect that reduces vibration. In vehicle propulsion systems, the TG14010 may be mounted inside the wheel hub, which dramatically reduces space requirements and weight.
