Tech Tips: Brushless Control Basics

Hi, this is Kali Jo with a Groschopp Tech Tip.  Today we will be discussing our Brushless DC Motor Controls.

Although we offer controls for both AC and DC motors, today we will focus on the controls that have been paired with our Brushless DC motors.

These controls come in 2 enclosure types: the first, in an enclosed NEMA 4X for harsh duty applications, and the second, a chassis mount, which is ideal for less severe OEM—Original Equipment Manufacturer—applications.

These controls have been tested with Groschopp’s current line of brushless DC motors to ensure that optimal performance can be achieved for your application.

In other words, our motor-control combos are performance matched with strategically designed compatibility features.

All controls and brushless motors will be offered as a package to give you the best motor/control solution possible for you application—you won’t have to sit and stare at a bunch of motor and control specs in order to figure out what is the best combination.

We’ve already done that for you. In addition, if you have any other questions, our sales team will be more than happy to walk you through the motor-control selection process.

The packages include a low voltage and line voltage option to match our low-volt and high-volt Brushless DC motors.

The low voltage controls are closed-loop, speed and direction controls that have been rated for an input voltage of 10-13.5n Volts DC or 18-54 Volts DC and rated for 20 amps continuous current.

The high or line voltage controls are also closed-loop, speed and direction controls and are rated for an input voltage of 120 Volts AC and for 3.1 amps continuous current, which equates to approximately 480 watts.

This closed-loop characteristic enables controls to provide excellent speed regulation, as well as several other characteristics of these controls. Watch for upcoming instructional Groschopp videos on brushless control basics, such as the functions of various features, control adjustability, and other component capabilities.

How to use the Motor Search Tool

Narrow your search by selecting motor type, gearbox, voltage, and phase options for your desired motor.

Select a dominant variable: choose one of the three parameters to narrow your search. The selected variable determines which slider bar you will be able to manually move.

Use the slider corresponding to your dominant variable to further narrow your motor selection. The other sliders will automatically move to show available ranges based on the range of your selected variable.

Results will upload as your search criteria changes. If you have any questions regarding your results or how to use the search tool, you can chat with us using the green tab on the left-hand side of your screen.

Note: Groschopp Universal motors are custom built to fit your application so no additional options are available to narrow the search. Selecting the Universal motor type will prompt a message taking you to the Universal product page.
