Orbex Group has introduced a line of compact gimbal motors that feature a pancake-style form factor. The motors are wound to operate at low speeds typical for gimbals while exhibiting a high torque constant for fast response. The gimbal motors are engineered to minimize cogging torque, ensuring smooth rotation, the company says. The brushless motors are electronically commutated and are lightweight making them suited for drones, UAVs and other airborne craft that need to maximize flight time. Orbex gimbal motors are available in two sizes: 16 millimeters (OD) by 10 millimeters (H) and 26 millimeters (OD) by 12 millimeters (H).
