# What do turns mean on a brushless motor?

Contents

Turns refers to the number of times the copper wire has actually been revolved around the armature. The higher the number of turns greater is the torque generated and hence greater is the power delivered. However that also means less RPM rating for your rc car electric motor.

## What does 12T mean on RC Motors?

A 12T double would use two wires wound twelve times and a 12T single a single thicker wire wound twelve times around each rotor pole. A low turn single will be best for HIGH RPM and a higher turn triple or quad have higher TORQUE over its RPM range.

## Does more turns mean more torque?

More Turns (e.g. 19T) = Higher torque, less rpm, longer battery life. Slower but easier to drive. Less Turns (e.g. 12T) = Less torque, more rpm, shorter battery life.

## How many turns is a 3300kv motor?

3300 is 13.5 equiv if it were a Novak motor.

## What does 12 turn motor mean?

A 12 turn motor will be tons faster and will drain a battery faster . Just as he said. a twelve turn motor will have more RPM, less torque, and draw more current. The number or turns refers toi the number of times the wire is warpped around your armature in the motor.

## Can you reverse a brushless motor?

3 Answers. Swapping any two of the wires connecting a brushless DC motor to its ESC will reverse the direction it spins. Despite the name BLDC which implies that the motor runs on DC power, each of the three wires (connected to one of the three phases in the motor) is driven by the ESC with a phase-shifted AC waveform.

## Can you reverse a brushless DC motor?

To reverse the default motor direction of a BLDC motor you must reverse two of the Hall sensor wires and the correct pair of the Phase wires (only one of the three phase wire swap options will work correctly).

## How do you determine the rpm of a brushless motor?

To estimate the RPM of a motor, simply multiply the Kv value by the battery voltage. Kv is in units of RPM/Volt. The more torque a motor needs to produce, the more current it will draw. The Kt rating designates the amount of torque a motor will produce given a current.
