    1. High performance and low consumption
      5kW brushless DC motor is three phase electric motor, which especially suited for application requiring higher efficiency and power density.
    2. Wide application range and good control effect
      BLDC motor works with a matching controller (ATO-KBL) may achieve simple to complex control, turn from CW to CCW, and meet various communication requirements (RS232, RS485, CAN, etc.). BLDC controller can be controlled through 0-5V DC analog signal to adjust the speed.
    3. Wide control speed torque range
      Brushless DC motor works with a gearbox (choose inline gearbox or right angle gearbox with gear ratio from 3:1 to 200:1) effectively reduce the motor's speed and moment of inertia to increase torque in your application, because the gearbox can control the start/stop and change speed in time.
    4. Low noise and smooth operation
      Brushless DC motor has no brushes, no sparks will be generated during operation, which greatly reduces friction.
    5. Good protection performance and continuous duty (24/7)
      5000W BLDC motor kit adopts a new type of sealing device, which has good protection performance and strong adaptability to the environment, and works continuously in harsh environments such as corrosion and humidity.
