DizzyMotor

DizzyMotor is designed for robotics application with the following requirements in mind:

  • High torque
  • Optimized for stall or near stall operation
  • Smooth and quiet
  • Backdrivable
  • Serial interface for commands and data exchange
The following video should give you an idea what it looks like:

 

Precise CAD design allowed to fit a lot of components into minimal size. For mobile robot you want to achieve max torque/power in minimal space/weight and I’m pretty happy with how a relatively complex design came out so compact.

 

CNC machining is awesome. Instead of choosing from what was available I was able to make it the way I want it. Every piece (except for stator core) is custom designed, including gears.
