DC motor is small and sturdy

Featuring a diameter of 17mm and a length of 18mm, the 17S DC motor from API Portescap is suited to battery run applications where reliability and efficiency are crucial, such as medical pumps. Constructed using a rotor with no iron core, the design provides minimal losses and low inertia. The use of rare earth magnets allows accelerations up to 12,400 rpm. The commutation system has been designed to reduce friction, so extending the operating lifetime and boosting efficiency.
