Portescap is pleased to announce a new motor selector tool, MotionCompass™ – a web-based application that facilitates choosing a motor based on your application needs. MotionCompass™ will provide you with recommendations for our brushless DC and brush DC coreless products that best fit your needs, including all relevant data. The MotionCompass™ dynamic motor selector enables you to input your application requirements (speed and torque) and receive prioritized recommendations for Brushless and Brush DC motors. Optional input fields allow the user to tailor motor recommendations based on performance, size and feedback considerations. Additionally, the operating voltage can be varied to view the performance of our motors at any specific voltage.
