Easy, Afforable Speed Control

High Performance Speed Control

The BMU series brushless DC motor speed control system offers a maximum speed of up to 4000 r/min (80 to 4000 r/min). This allows for a wider speed range, wider selection of gear ratios and torque ranges making the BMU Series an ideal alternative for servo, brushed motors or AC three-phase Inverter driven applications.

High Performance Speed Control

Affordable Price

The BMU series brushless DC motor speed control systems offer user-friendly features and expanded functions at an affordable price. Now offering even more value and performance, the BMU series BLDC motor, driver and gearhead come together as one part number; saving time when ordering and ensuring a complete solution, guaranteed.

No Maintenance, Longer Life

In a brushless DC motor, there are no brushes and thus no physical contact the could lead to frictional energy losses.

While brush DC motors use a brush and commutator to rotate and require regular maintenance, brushless DC motors rotate by the ON/OFF operation of the drive circuit transistor, based on the signals detected by the hall effect IC (magnetic sensor).

Brushless DC motors are more expensive to design and manufacture, however, they are typically more efficient than brushed DC motors.

This leads to:

  • No maintenance, longer life
  • More power
  • Longer runtime

Easy Speed Control

Using the dial and digital speed indicator, controlling the BMU series brushless DC motor speed is simple and user-friendly.

Dial Setting

Turn the dial and set the desired speed. Push to set (store) the desired speed. After the speed has been set, it can easily be changed by operating the dial. The dial can be locked to prevent changes in speed with the dial lock operation.

Easy Wiring, Easy Set Up

Get started quickly and easily. Connecting the motor is simple using the included cables with connectors. The power and I/O connectors feature a screwless connector, eliminating the need for soldering or crimp tools. Start the motor with one switch; the motor starts when the switch is set to "RUN" and decelerates to a stop if set to "STAND-BY". It's also simple to change the rotation direction of the motor using the rotation direction switch on the front of the driver.

Easy Wiring

A New Motor Design: Compact, High-Power and High-Efficiency

An optimal magnetic design and high-performance material enable the new brushless DC motor stator plate to have a thickness of just 7/16 in. (11.2 mm). This slim design achieves a highly efficient power unit that outputs 120 W (1/6 HP). Compared with the conventional brushless DC motor of the same output power, the stator plate thickness is only half of the conventional one.

High Performance Stator

Easy to Use Controller

(Typical functions that can be set while the front panel is opened)

  • Motor Start/Stop*
  • Adjusting the operating speed*
  • Setting the operating speed*
  • Selecting the rotation direction*
  • Changing the indication
  • Indicating the operating speed when the speed reduction/speed increasing
    ratio is set
  • Setting the acceleration/deceleration time
  • Dial operation lock
  • Speed setting for the 4-speed operation
  • Speed limits setting
  • Validating the external operating signals

*Setting is possible even if the front panel is attached.

Driver Functions


Load Factor can be shown

With the rated torque of the motor at 100%, the load factor can be expressed as a percentage (40-200%). The load condition during start-up, as well as the load condition due to the aging deterioration of the equipment can be confirmed.

Load Factor

Dial Operation Lock Function

This prevents the undesired changes in the speed and the changes or deletion of data with the operation of the dial. At the main screen for each operating mode, press the "MODE" key for 5 seconds or more. When "Lk" appears the lock function is activated.

Lock Function

Canceling the Lock Function

Return to the main screen and press the "MODE" key for 5 seconds or more. When "UnLK" is indication the lock function has been cancelled.

Parallel Shaft Gear Motor

The high-strength gearhead is designed to withstand high-speed revolutions. The rated life of the gearhead is 10000 hours, which is twice as long as that of our previous gearhead.

New Gearhead (combination type)

With the gearhead's boss and machined mounting surface, the installation accuracy has been greatly improved. The new gearhead also has lower audible noise as compared to our previous type and comes pre-assembled (motor and gear) as a combinations type.

Benefits of Using the Right-Angle Geared Type

Space reduction is achieved when mounted along side the conveyor belt. Because the output shaft of the gear is vertically in the middle of the installation surface, it is possible to change the installation direction horizontally, tailored to equipment position of installation.

Space Saving

Component cost saving is achieved through reduction of fastening parts, assembly steps reduced through mechanism simplification. Maintenance cost is also reduced or eliminated as a result.
