How to Turn a Brushed Motor into a Brushless Motor 6 Easy Steps 1

In this blog post, you will learn 6 easy ways on how to turn a brushed motor into a brushless motor. Brushed motors are simple and cheap but they have some disadvantages that make them unsuitable for many applications.

Brushless motors offer superior quality and performance at the cost of increased complexity and expense. If your application requires high torque or speed, it is worth converting your brushed motor into a brushless one!

Difference Between Brushed Motor and Brushless

A brushed motor is the most commonly used type of electric motor in small applications. It can be found in everything from desk fans to robot vacuum cleaners. The rotor inside a brushed motor has permanent magnets that attach to electromagnets attached to the stator, spinning it around.

When this happens, electricity flows through the coils creating magnetism which interacts with the field created by magnets on the rotor, causing it to spin (counterclockwise). This continues until you remove the power source or make changes like reversing polarity across each coil, adding torque for rotation in either direction.

A brushless motor has also different uses and applications. similar to a brushed motor in that it consists of a rotor, stator, and axle. The difference is that the permanent magnets are attached directly to the rotor rather than through electromagnets as with a brushed motor. This means you can power your brushless motor without worrying about polarity because both poles will function independently.

6 Steps On How to Turn a Brushed Motor into a Brushless Motor.

Here are six easy steps on how to turn a brushed motor into a brushless one.

Step #01: Get a Brushless Motor

The first step is to get yourself a brushless motor. There are many different types of these available online, and in stores, so you should have no problem finding one that fits your budget and project needs.

Step #02: Remove the Brushed Motor’s Case

By removing the brushed motor’s case, we will be able to see its components more clearly and access them easily for future reference purposes during this modification process.

The screws holding it together can usually be found on the bottom or backside of the device (if they’re visible). Once removed, set it aside somewhere safe where it won’t accidentally fall apart while not being used anymore; doing so could lose some important parts, making reassembly impossible.

Step #03: Solder the Wires to Your Brushless Motor’s Leads

Now that you’ve exposed your brushed motor’s leads, it is time to solder them onto the wires of a brushless one. If there are no visible ones on your new motor, feel free to attach some by soldering or gluing them in place so they don’t break off when used later on down the road! You should be able to find out how many poles each lead has by referring back to step two where you removed its case and counted them accordingly.

Step #04: Attach The Brushed Motor Case Back Onto Its Holes Where It Used To Be Held Together With Screw

This next part is very important! If the brushed motor’s case is not attached back onto its holes where it used to be held together with screws, then your brushless one will spin out of control and could potentially cause harm or damage to yourself or others nearby.

Step #05: Test It Out Before Reassembly

In order to make sure that everything worked properly during this modification process, you should test it by attaching a battery pack so we can see if our newly turned brushless motor actually works (and how well). This step shouldn’t take long at all since the soldering job was already taken care of in previous steps; therefore, we won’t run into any problems when doing this part.

Step #06: Put Everything Back Together Again Once You Are Satisfied With How It Is Running

Now that you know everything works properly, it is time to put all of the electronic components back together again. Reattach the brushed motor’s case by screwing it in a place where its holes line up with each other (or using some glue if they do not).

Doing this will make your device look better and operate more efficiently; therefore, no one should be able to tell what has changed unless they take off the outer shell once again, like we did earlier on during step number two.

Congratulations are in order because you have successfully turned a brushed motor into a brushless one! Now you can rest assured that your device will run more smoothly and last a lot longer than it did before.
