Smart electric motor company Linear Labs has announced the availability of their HET MM17555 motor, aka The Honey Badger, to anyone regardless of order size. The HET produces twice the torque of competitive motors or equal torque in a smaller size. This brand-new technology provides a competitive advantage for small business, academic institutions, or individuals looking to experiment with stay-at-home projects. Most importantly, the increased power of the HET compared to other products gives entrepreneurs a competitive edge against their competition, providing superior performance or more compact packaging of products as varied as e-bikes, drones or any other electric design a startup might imagine.
Designed and assembled in the USA, the HET MM17555 motor is a variable-speed permanent magnet motor producing more than twice the torque of any equivalently sized motor with greater efficiency across the full speed range. This torque advantage means the HET motor can propel an e-scooter up challenging inclines or power a drone for extended periods of time with incomparable efficiencies. Additionally, it is the first unsealed motor that can work underwater for marine applications.
With a mass of <6 kg (12 lbs) and dimensions of 175 mm x L 55 mm, the MM17555 HET motor produces peak power of >3.4 kW at 650 rpm (50 Nm) and continuous toque of 1.4 kW at 900 rpm (15 Nm). Voltage ranges from 48 – 72 VDC with a continuous current of 22 A (rms) and peak current of up to 100 A (rms). It’s the perfect means of propulsion for projects ranging from electric small-last-mile mobility vehicles to robotics, with applications fitting everyone from high school and college students to up-and-coming inventors. The accessibility of working with the HET’s modular design means it can be adapted to fit almost any use case, running like a BLDC motor but with much greater torque than competitors.
