A Direct Current (DC) engine is a rotating electrical gadget that converts direct current, of electrical energy, into mechanical energy. An Inductor (coil) in the DC motor creates a magnetic field that creates rotary motion as DC voltage is applied to its terminal. Inside the motor is an iron shaft, wrapped in a coil of wire. This shaft consists of two set, North and Southern, magnets on both sides which causes both a repulsive and attractive force, in turn, generating torque. ISL Products styles and manufactures both brushed DC motors and brushless DC motors. We tailor our DC motors size and performance to meet up your desired specs.

A gear motor can be an all-in-one mixture of a motor and gearbox. The addition of a gear head to a motor reduces the speed while increasing the torque output. The most crucial parameters in regards to gear motors are rate (rpm), torque (lb-in) and efficiency (%). In order to choose the most suitable gear motor for your application you must first compute the strain, rate and torque requirements for your application. ISL Products provides a number of Spur Gear Motors, Planetary Gear Motors and Worm Gear Motors to meet all application requirements. Most of our DC motors can be complimented with among our unique gearheads, providing you with a highly efficient gear motor alternative.

Motor Selection Process
The electric motor selection process, at the conceptual design phase, can be challenging but our engineers are here to greatly help. We offer a concierge approach to our DC motors and gear motors projects. We of engineers work with you to provide the optimal component solution. The following key points can help you determine and select the most appropriate motor or gear electric motor for our Conveyor Chain software. You can also make use of our DC Electric motor / Gear Motor Selection Information to greatly help us narrow down your exact motor/gear motor requirements.

Design Requirements – A design assessment phase where in fact the product development requirements, style parameters, device efficiency, and product optimization are studied.
Style Calculations – Calculations utilized to determine which motor will be the best solution for the application. Design calculations determine equipment ratio, torque, rotating mass, service factor, overhung load, and examining analysis.
Types of DC Motors/Gearmotors – The most typical electrical motors convert electrical energy to mechanical energy. These types of motors are run by immediate current (DC).
Brushed
Brushless (BLDC)
Planetary Gear Motors
Spur Gear Motors
Stepper
Coreless & Coreless Brushless
Servo
Gear heads
Motor Specifications – Once the design calculations are performed, and the application parameters are defined, you may use this data to determine which motor or gear motor will best fit your application. Some of the most common specs to consider when selecting a motor or equipment motor would be:
Voltage
Current
Power
Torque
RPM
LIFE SPAN / Duty Cycle
Rotation (CW or CCW)
Shaft Diameter and Length
Enclosure Restrictions
