A new closed-loop motor designed to offer “unparalleled performance” will soon be available to purchase via the Crowd Supply website in the form of the IQ Motor Module. Design to provide users with an integrated motor and controller that uses a position sensor and advanced calibration and control algorithms to optimise motor performance. The IQ Motor Module can be seen demonstrated in the video embedded below.
Technical specifications for the IQ Motor Module include two variations offering a high-speed module and a precision module both in a 2306 size, with the high-speed module providing a constant rpm of 2200 KV, and the precision module a constant rpm of 220 KV. Both motor modules will have an estimated peak current of 30 A and estimated peak voltage of 25.2 V.
Features of the professional-grade IQ Motor Module include, 3D reversible, cross zero without delay, anticogging, reduced motor vibration (see below for more information), efficiency mode (sinusoidal commutation). Up to 20% more efficient than standard motors, turbo mode (trapezoidal commutation). 4.8% increase in shaft power, regenerative/active braking, precise up to .088 degrees with synchronized positioning, various communication protocols (serial, DShot, standard PWM), motor can be used as an input, over-current protection and access to control parameters.
No information on pricing has been made available as yet but the IQ Motor Module is suitable for a wide variety of applications including consumer and enterprise drones, as well as many other robotic projects.
