Direct Drive vs Belt Drive vs Gear Drive

Aug 28 2014This article aims to explain the key differences between common servo / belt drive force feedback wheels servo / gear drive force feedback wheels and newer direct drive force feedback wheels It's important to note that the term servo is widely misused in the racing simulation industry causing the term to essentially mean nothing It's unfortunate that these

Brushless DC Motors (BLDC Motors)

By designing a taller gear case we are able to use a larger gear in the final stage of gearing Both the larger diameter of the gear and improved rigidity of the gear case increases the permissible torque handled by the gear assembly (as shown in Figure 5) While conventional gearheads suffer from limited permissible torque due to torque


A servomotor is a rotary actuator or linear actuator that allows for precise control of angular or linear position velocity and acceleration It consists of a suitable motor coupled to a sensor for position feedback It also requires a relatively sophisticated controller often a dedicated module designed specifically for use with servomotors

FAQ: What is electronic gearing for servo motors?

Oct 28 2016Gears are often used to establish a fixed speed relationship between a motor and a drive system (such as a ball screw rack and pinion or belt and pulley system) For example when a belt and pulley system is connected to a motor through a 3:1 gearbox each full rotation of the motor causes the pulley to turn 1/3 of a full rotation

Stepper Motor vs Servo Motor Comparison

For the same price most designers prefer to use servo motors For constant or variable loads servo systems can recover from overload conditions where stepper systems cannot Steppers give a lot of torque in a small package under 1 000 rpm In contrast servo motors can handle torque requirements below and well above 1 000 rpm Inertia Matching
