Permanent Magnet DC Motors
Industrial-Grade Fractional HP DC Motors
Permanent magnet DC motors for Drones, UAVs and Robotics
We can make special modifications to the standard design, altering aspects such as RFI/EMI filters, pinions, mounting flanges and brakes to suit your precise requirements. Custom speeds and voltage ranges are available upon request.
Rugged permanent magnet DC motors for military applications
Designed to meet the needs of demanding military UAV and robotics applications, our military-grade fractional HP motors feature excellent power-to-weight ratios as well as high reliability and efficiency. Many models have been engineered to meet relevant portions of the MIL-M-8608 and MIL-E-5272 standards, including environmental ruggedness and explosion-proofing.
These permanent magnet motors can be customised with flexible design options for flanges, pinions, filters, brakes and more. Custom speeds and voltage ranges are available upon request.
Military-grade Brushless DC Motor for UAV, UGVs & Robots
Our brushless fractional HP motors feature low noise, longer lifespan and improved efficiency. They are ideal for a wide range of commercial, industrial and military applications in both aerial drones and ground robotics platforms. Windings can be tailored to your specific voltage, speed and torque requirements.
Diameter: 0.50” to over 4.0” Power Output: 5W to over 700W Input Voltage: 12V, 24V, 48V and more
The TruLaunch series of high-pressure pneumatic launchers for UAVs feature unlimited launch capacity with multiple launches per charge. The lightweight, durable carbon fibre construction makes the launchers easy to transport and assemble.
With no electronics and no external power requirements, the TruLaunch systems can be deployed under a wide range of conditions, getting UAVs airborne quickly and efficiently. Launch velocities and other parameters can be easily fine-tuned to support particular UAS specifications.
TruLaunch 1 and 2 are pneumatic rail launchers compatible with multiple UAS configurations, while TruLaunch T is a tube launcher that can accommodate multiple canisters or projectiles, and can be deployed on both fixed and mobile platforms.
