With environmental, economic, geopolitical and environmental concerns making headlines, the concept of energy efficiency is gaining broad support across the globe. Efficiency is often associated with how the end user consumes energy, but it also has to do with how energy is generated and distributed. As BLDC motor manufacturers have their devices installed in products that operate on direct current (DC), the use of direct currents from DC sources avoids energy losses related to converting DC power to AC power and then back to DC power. With motors accounting for up to half of the planet’s energy consumption, brushless DC…
BLDC Motors take LiDar Drones to New Heights
The face of modern surveying is changing. In addition to using satellites and traditional surveying equipment such as retroreflectors and optical levels, specialists use remote sensing and UAV technologies to scan the Earth’s surface. One of these technologies is Light Detection and Ranging, or LiDar. Specialists perform the sensing method remotely to examine the planet’s surface using light pulses. The instrument contains a scanner, laser and a special GPS receiver. Rather than use an airplane or helicopter, scientists are taking advantage of drone technologies imbedded with BLDC motors to keep the aircraft aloft and powered to keep costs significantly lower….
