Hall sensor circuit The open collector output of Hall sensors does not normally have its own pull-up resistance, as this is integral in maxon controllers. Any excep- tions are specifically mentioned in the relevant motor data sheets.
Winding arrangement The winding is divided into 3 partial windings which have several stator teeth each. The partial windings can be connected in two different manners - “Y” or “Δ”. This changes the speed and torque inversely proportional by the factor 3 . However, the winding arrangement does not play a decisive role in the selection of the motor. It is important that the motor-specific parameters (speed and torque constants) are in line with requiremenats.
Sinusoidal commutation Sinusoidal commutation or field-oriented control (FOC) for EC motors with grooved wind- ing is possible. The main benefit of sinusoidal commutation − the smooth operation − only comes into play to a limited degree due to the detent.

The power consumption of a Hall sensor is typically 4 mA (for output of Hall sensor = “HI”).
Bearings and service life The long service life of the brushless design can only be properly exploited by using pre- loaded ball bearings. − Bearings designed for tens of thousands of hours − Service life is affected by maximum speed, residual imbalance and bearing load
