Makers, developers and hobbyists looking for a robotic power source might be interested in a new all-in-one brushless gearless electric motor module which has been created by the development team at Keigan.
The Keigan Motor has been specifically designed for rapid prototyping and allows you to create a number of robotic projects with ease. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about this modular robotic power system which is launched by Kickstarter this week.
The developing team is hoping to raise just $15,000 over the next 60 days to take the Keigan Motor into production, with pledges available from $279 for super earlybird backers. The development team behind the robotic power system explain more about its inspiration and design.
Keigan Motor is an all-in-one brushless gearless electric motor module, which is best for rapid prototyping. It has 3 good points. “Easy-to-Use”, “High-Performance”, and “Cooperatively Controllable” (2 or more Keigan Motors are able to work together simultaneously to perform more complex functions). These utilities of Keigan Motors make it possible to embody your ideas for robots and moving systems. We dream of a society where anyone can create robots which are convenient for their daily life or business easily and quickly by Keigan Motors.
Keigan Motor is an all-in-one electric motor module. It includes a brushless motor, a control board with a motor driver, a BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) chip, a rotary encoder, a flash memory and a 6-axis accelerometer-gyro sensor. You can use a portable USB battery as a power source. Also, we provide useful apps for iOS and Android. As soon as you unbox your Keigan Motor and plug it into your portable USB battery, you can control it from our app in your smartphone!
We also developed a high-performance brushless and gearless motor. As is well known, brushless motors have many strong points, which are preciseness, smoothness, quietness, and low-power consumption. Keigan Motor, whose maximal torque is over 2.6 lbf·in (0.3N·m) with less than 10W power consumption, rotates precisely, smoothly, and quietly. It can be controlled to any angle you like with accuracy of 0.05°.
