Made for Rapid Prototyping
KeiganMotor is an all-in-one brushless gearless electric motor module, which is best for rapid prototyping.
It has 3 good points. "Easy-to-Use", "High-Performance", and "Cooperatively Controllable" (2 or more KeiganMotors are able to work together simultaneously to perform more complex functions).
These utilities of KeiganMotors make it possible to embody your ideas for robots and moving systems. We dream of a society where anyone can create robots which are convenient for their daily life or business easily and quickly by KeiganMotors.
KeiganMotor is an all-in-one electric motor module. It includes a brushless motor, a control board with a motor driver, a BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) chip, a rotary encoder, a flash memory and a 6-axis accelerometer-gyro sensor. You can use a portable USB battery as a power source. Also, we provide useful apps for iOS and Android. As soon as you unbox your KeiganMotor and plug it into your portable USB battery, you can control it from our app in your smartphone!
We also developed a high-performance brushless and gearless motor. As is well known, brushless motors have many strong points, which are preciseness, smoothness, quietness, and low-power consumption. KeiganMotor, whose maximal torque is over 2.6 lbf·in (0.3N·m) with less than 10W power consumption, rotates precisely, smoothly, and quietly. It can be controlled to any angle you like with accuracy of 0.05°.
- Cooperatively Controllable
Even a single KeiganMotor is amazing, but it’s more amazing to combine multiple ones. As they don't require any wires other than power USB cables, you can design a robot with multiple motors relatively quickly. Also, we provide APIs and apps for smartphones to control them simultaneously to perform more complex functions. So you can enjoy designing and controlling your own robot.
- Additional Features
KeiganMotor has a rotary encoder and a flash memory. You can record a motion by performing a movement by hand and playback it. Furthermore, you can use a KeiganMotor as an input device by relaying angles and torques while performing a movement. Also, KeiganMotor has a 6-axis accelerometer&gyro sensor to be useful for attitude control.
- For developers
Developers can bring out the full performance of KeiganMotor easily and quickly. Complicated motion control can be achieved with light-weight code by using our SDK. Especially, you can queue multiple tasks and call them at any time you like. Various devices (smartphone, Windows PC, Raspberry Pi,...) can works as a controller for KeiganMotor.
