What is BLDC Driver

Explore Mechtex's diverse BLDC Drivers for precise motor control. From miniature toys to heavy machinery use in various applications

What is BLDC Motor Driver?

A BLDC motor driver is also known as a brushless DC motor driver. It is an electrical circuit that enables switching the current into a motor's winding in different ways to produce the desired speed and torque.

At Mechtex we provide a variety of high-current BLDC drivers in both conventional and customized forms. The two most popular types of 3-phase BLDC drivers drivers are AC BLDC drivers and DC BLDC drivers. These drivers are used in a wide range of applications, from small toys to heavy industrial machinery.

Why are BLDC motor drivers necessary when plug-and-play would do?

All electric motors operate primarily on alternating current, even DC and stepper motors. The mechanisms of all moving objects are controlled by the four universal Maxwell electromagnetic laws. The conclusion of these laws, specific to motor application, can be summarized as follows:

  1. A change in electric current produces a magnetic field.
  2. A change in magnetic field induces current in the conducting cable.
  3. Take any dummy motor, like the one in your table or ceiling fan. Rotating the fan’s blade manually causes current to flow into the winding. The reverse of the same phenomenon occurs in a table or ceiling fan when an electric current passes through the motor.

Why are there so many different kinds of BLDC motor drivers? 

At mechtex, we manufacture a diverse range of BLDC motor drivers to meet the evolving needs of our customers. Our diverse range includes high-current BLDC motor drivers, integrated BLDC motor drivers, and sensorless BLDC motor drivers. each type of BLDC motor driver designed to deliver exceptional performance and reliability. Whether you need precise control over high current, seamless integration with existing systems or applications, or sensorless operation for simplified setups, we have the solutions for you. Our team of expert engineers is available to provide comprehensive support and guidance to help you find the perfect BLDC motor driver for your application. 

Technological Advances - Ease of use

There are several different drivers available to control the motors, including automatic speed control, automatic torque control, sensor-based, and senseless drivers. The amount of charge and concentration of current applied to a motor winding can be adjusted to regulate any form of rotational dynamics of a mechanically stable motor by an electric driver.

System engineers and End Users can achieve the appropriate level of performance with little to no knowledge of Mechatronics engineering thanks to programmable controllers and cutting-edge user interfaces currently on the market. The speedometer-like screen, practical knobs, and user-friendly UIs make it possible for users to control the speed and remotely monitor the system, ensuring the safety of small- and large-scale operations.

Mechtex offers various BLDC motor drivers and stepper drivers for various applications. Our drivers offer various advantages such as easy control, thermal protection, and IEC compliance. If you also want drivers for your motors, explore our range of drivers and controllers for better control.
