ec7nem803a-LPortescap introduced its nuvoDisc, a family of flat brushless DC miniature motors. With a footprint of 32 mm × 11.7 mm, the motors are  engineered for markets where miniaturization is needed, and they are suitable for space-constrained applications such as portable respirators and barcode scanners. A high-speed slotless design reduces vibration and eliminates cogging to provide smooth operation and accuracy for maintaining a stable speed compared with conventional miniature flat motors. A slotted design is available for applications that require detent torque such as damper control in the HVAC industry. Offering speeds of up to 50,000 rpm and mechanical power output of up to 30W, the motors deliver high efficiency and reduction of power supply requirements by drawing less current, minimizing generated heat.
