Maxon Motor has launched a half-day training course entitled ‘Introduction to DC motor selection’, which is designed to provide the practical information users need to select the right DC drives — be they brushed or brushless — for their applications.

The course covers the interpretation of motor data and how this information can be used for motor sizing.

Whether users require high speed and dynamics or just high torque, this workshop will teach participants to size a drive with just the right power reserves, avoiding costly oversized motors.

Held at Maxon’s offices in Berkshire, UK, the course is free of charge.
