Insulated brushless motor windings

  1. May 27, 2011 #1

    I've never done Physics before (bad choice I know :P) so forgive the question if it seems a bit noob.

    Do the windings in a brushless motor have to physically be in contact with the magnets in the stator? That is, can the windings be insulated?

    The magnets in brushless motor are in the rotor, not stator. The windings most definitely don't have to be in electric contact with stator material (which could be iron).
