Motor that meets these requirements?

  1. Jan 3, 2012 #1
    Does anyone know of a motor that meets these requirements?

    Minimum torque: 5.5 mNm
    Minimum no load speed: 30,000rpm
    Minimum power capability: 8.7 watts
    Maximum length: 1" plus/minus .25"
    Maximum diameter: 3"

    Thanks!

    If no one has a source, why not search online.

    I hate to sound like Fox Mulder, but have you asked NASA about this? That 30,000 rpm figure seems reminiscent of the stabilization gyros on the early LandSat and KeyHole satellites.

    Just thinking out loud... :uhh:

    Oh, nuts! How could I forget the friendly neighbourhood Dremel tool? I've never disassembled one, so I'm not sure about the motor dimensions, and I have no idea as to the torque and wattage, but they spin up to 50,000 rpms on mains or 30,000 on battery power. A bit pricey, but very reasonable for what they can do.
