Brushless gimbal motor configurations
« on: February 24, 2013, 10:52:05 PM »

I thought I`d put a thread up to collect different motors used / windings / wire diameter etc and what cameras they can cope with. I think it will be a usefull resource.

Winding techniques for different motors :

Pancake 24n28p                                                                                                   Standard 12 pole :
   


Ill start it off :

Turnigy 5014
.2 wire
150 turns
15 ohm

Tested on Sony Nex 7

Rewound Turnigy 5014


Alexmos SBGC with Sony Nex 7



Smartdrones 4404
12N/14P
0.15mm
300 winds
36.2 ohms
Tested on 400g camera and a Canon 55D

brushless test w



RcTimer HP4215 18 stator 24 pole
80 turns


Brushless Gimbal Test 4215 80 Turn


Here are some brushless gimbal motor suppliers now getting into the game :

Altitude Hobbies :

2208 0.16mm 80 turns for GoPro

3508 0.21mm 130 turns for Nex 5N

4006 0.136mm 150 turns for Nex 5 size

Tiger

4006 0.18 120 turns

2208 0.18 80 turns

iFLIGHT

4006 0.21mm 150 turns Nex 5 size

2208 0.16 80 turns GoPro size

5206 0.21mm 150 turns DLRS size

4008 0.21 150 turns Nex 6 / 7 size

3508 0.21 130 turns 200 - 400g camera

2212 0.16 80 turns GoPro size

For my first gimbal I have

RCTimer 2830 750KV
0.18mm
60 winds
10.4 ohm over two phases

For : Gopro 1 / 2 - yet to be tested

Already tested here :

Apart from altering the gauge of wire used and the number of turns wound, could you in theory fine-tune a brushless 'gimbal motor' by varying the supplied voltage ??

Varying the voltage varies the torque too yes, the wire diameter and number of turns dictates the resistance and torque to begin with, then the higher the voltage the more torque

The wires are enameled Andy, they are insulated

Well that's something new learned today. Very impressive how the brushless motor is taking over the job of a servo.

do you have to rewire the motor to make these new gimbals work?

if so is it a change in phases on the windings or an increase in turns + larger swg to get the current down?

Yes you do, you rewind them in Wye format.

The winding are of thinner wire with more turns for a higher resistance which gives more torque for less current in the range required for the gimbal operation

I guess you need a certain amount of poles to make it work then.

what is the ideal amount of poles,  and can you limit the current through the software or  a resistor ?

I'm guessing this is the way forward with camera gimbals , and once an ideal configuration is realised it could be ridiculously cheap to make.

i fear i may have to eat my words after previously saying this was an expensive gimmik that would not be as good as servo,s ...... all looks very impressive.

Now wish i had the skills and patience to somtheing like a brushless gimball

So far basically any motor configuration can be used, most prefer 24n24p because the cogging is reduced. Lower KV the better as well.

The current is limited by the software, you tune it so it can hold its position fine without running hot.

With motors being as cheap as $20 ( depending on setup, ) controllers from $50 to $150 and a gimbal frame chances are yes your gonna :)

Once they get it all sorted out ( early days ) then it will be available in kit form soon enough.

DIY Brushless gimbal outdoor test


incredible

what is the current consumtion of one of these things compared to a servo driven system ?

how long before motors are available pre wound for this purpose i wonder? shouldnt cost anymore than the standard motors, then it becomes cheap and simple, ????

The drivers are rated for 2 amps each max current
