Understanding thermal behaviour of DC motors

Part of the maxon video series

See YouTube for more technical content

During the continuous operation of DC motors, power losses occur to conserve energy. In this video series, the Technical Engineers at maxon UK and Ireland provide an analytical explanation of the thermodynamic response and detail the significance behind the thermal parameters listed in the maxon DC motor datasheets.


maxon motors can be pushed beyond the standard operating ranges to achieve higher torque and speeds. This video describes the different operating ranges, limitations of DC motors, and thermally criticality.
