So to answer your question, Can I use brushless ESC with a brushed motor? You cannot use a brushless ESC with a brushed motor. Brushed motors need brushed ESC and brushless motors need brushless ESC. The brushless ESC’s outputs are 3 phase AC current whereas brushed motors run on DC current.
Can I use brushless controller for brushed motor?
Brushless motors require controllers that are completely different from controllers for brushed motors. For any brushed motor: Select a controller for brushed motors. The controller voltage rating, the motor’s maximum operating voltage and the battery voltage should all match.
Can I use any ESC with any motor?
Any brushless esc will work with any brushless motor. Making sure you have a large enough esc is another thing. That ESC will work fine for that motor, as the motor is rated at 18A max and the ESC will handle up to 40A. Yeah that ESC will work fine.
Can you mix and match ESC and motor?
For the most part, yes, you can. A few things you have to consider…in most cases, you can’t run a sensored motor on a sensorless ESC for example. Mostly you have to make sure the ESC can handle the motor wind or KV.
Can I use a castle motor with Traxxas ESC?
Short answer is no. Not all brushless esc’s are compatible with all brushless motors.
Does higher KV mean faster?
Kv describes the RPM (revolutions per minute) a motor does per Volt that is put into it. Generally speaking the more Kv a motor has, the more RPM and more power. For example, a 9000Kv motor would be faster than a 2200Kv motor.
What ESC to use with what motor?
The ESC can be selected based on the voltage and the peak current rating of the motor. A simple rule is to choose an ESC with atleast 5A more capacity than the peak rating of the motor, since you may be powering servos, receiver and other accessories from the ESC. Remember to always round up.
How do I choose the right ESC for my brushless motor?
Now, we will learn all these factors one by one,
- Current Rating. The first thing to consider when selecting an ESC is the current rating or ampere rating. …
- Input Voltage Rating. …
- Weight and Size. …
- ESC Firmware. …
- With or Without BEC. …
- Connection of ESC with motor. …
- ESC Protocols. …
- ESC Processors.
Does the ESC have to match the motor?
You just match the voltage rating, and buy an ESC with sufficient current to handle the load you plan to run. For example a motor might be rated for say 6S and 50 amps maximum.
How many amps does my ESC need to be?
If you are using 30amps ESCs, you should choose motors that are bigger than 2205 or faster than 2300kv, and propellers should be bigger than 5 inches. For examples 30 amps is required for the 2204 2700kv, 2204 3200kv, 2205 2700kv or 2206 1900kv(with 6 inch propellers).
What is ESC for 3S LiPo?
Go with the MMP esc. Brushed or brushless, 6s capable, plenty of power. Mamba Monster 2 and new Sidewinder 8th will handle 3S LiPo, high power motors, run brushless and brushed, and are waterproof. So far I have not seen the Sidewinder 8th available standalone (without the motor).
How does brushed ESC work?
A brushed motor is DC (Direct Current) and only required an ESC to have one “bank” (sometimes paralleled to multiply current capacity) of FETs. These simply chop up the flow of electricity to throttle the motor. Commutation is taken care of mechanically via the brushes and a sectioned commutator inside the motor.
What are the 3 wires on a brushless motor?
The three wires of brushless can be thought of as 1, 2 and 3. Going forward would be this sequence 1-2, 2-3, 3-1, 1-2, etc. Going backwards would be 1-3, 3-2, 2-1, 1-3, etc.
