We go over the different criteria and applications that will help you choose between brushed and brushless motors.
What are the main differences between a brushed and a brushless motor. Frequently you need to ask yourself what is the best solution for your application and, of course, doubts appears.
This important choice will depend on the type of application that we are to develop, its size, and power requirements. In particular, the differences between these electric motors are given by their operation and structure.
On one hand, the service life of a brushless motor is higher: since it has no brushes. there is no friction to generate wear or noise. On the other hand, the lifespan of brushed motors is lower as they have higher friction. When reversing the polarity, they generate heat and sparks, and therefore the brushes get worn and have to be replaced sooner.
