Portescap Launches Online Tools for Miniature Motors
July 16, 2021—
Portescap eStore allows customers to search for off-the-shelf products to suit their desired configuration, environment or envelope.
Portescap has unveiled two new online tools to streamline the process of evaluating and buying miniature motors. MotionCompass delivers product recommendations for brush and brushless DC motors based on user criteria, and the eStore lets users quickly and easily find, configure and order Portescap miniature motors.
Here’s how they work:
MotionCompass: This dynamic tool allows users to input operating points such as torque, speed and voltage, along with key application parameters and gearbox and position feedback requirements. MotionCompass will generate a list of motor recommendations that users can prioritize in ascending or descending order according to their speed, efficiency, power or current needs. It also immediately displays prices and availability so users can proceed to the eStore, confirm the order quantity and complete their purchase.
eStore: Portescap customers can browse or search for off-the-shelf products to suit their desired configuration, environment or envelope. When a customer selects a motor, they can easily download its specifications as well as 2D drawings and 3D CAD models, check its availability and, if the product is not
available for immediate shipment, request a quote. In addition, users can customize a motor for a hard-to-satisfy application by reviewing options for gearheads and encoders. And checkouts are even faster with an e-store account.
Taken together, these online tools offer designers a convenient and comprehensive resource to guide their motor selection decisions throughout product development, allowing them to iterate their design and implement any changes based on their off-the-shelf motor options. Customers will also be able to test their designs in a virtual setting, which saves time and helps get end products to market faster.
