DC brushless torque motors

High torque, low speed motors for direct drive operation of gimbals and small turrets.

Zero wear, zero maintenance.

These low friction motors power high torque direct drives while preventing the need for a reduction gear.

Features and benefits

  • High dynamic bandwidth thanks to low mechanical time constant and high peak current capability
  • Improved servo-loop accuracy thanks to possibly reduced friction torque and cogging torque
  • Possible degraded operation in case of dual channel, instead of total loss
  • Custom rotor and stator hubs to perfectly fit your system, allowing easier integration
  • Optional outer rotors to move outer loads


Used primarily on military applications including:

  • Conventional radar antennae
  • Electro-optical systems
  • Remote control weapon systems (RCWS)
  • Targeting gimbals rotation
