An industrial company was producing a tool that utilized a DC Motor. They wanted to change to a brushless motor to provide longer life, and better speed control. The challenge was to produce a custom brushless drive that had some unique software features, and fit in the customer’s tool enclosure that had fixed mounting hole positions and size.
Utilizing existing drive technology, the specific customer’s software features were programmed into a completely new layout of the board. The end result was a low power consumption product with features and operation method that satisfies the customer’s expectations.
