Lecture: DC Motors (Making Things Move)
Wednesday, 10/4/2017
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
TechShop St. Louis

Join TechShop member Keith Chester as he discusses the many types of electric motors out there, focusing on DC motors, stepper motors, and BLDC motors.

Learn how motors work, how control circuits for them work (high level), and how to calculate what motor you need for the given task. The culmination of the talk would be presenting a simple robot design, taking its predicted weight and desired speed, and then selecting a motor to purchase for it.
