Our IQ Fortiq BLS42 motor modules are now available for crowdfunding! This is a line of ultra-compact, high-performance servo motors. They are straight-stack, straight-magnet BLDCs with integrated motor controllers and magnetic rotary encoders for position sensing. The Fortiq BLS42 line is built to maximize torque and speed output while minimizing motor vibration and footprint.

An IQ Fortiq module offers the performance benefits of high-end industrial servo at the price of a quality stepper motor and controller. Fortiq BLS42 motors are rated to 4,000 RPM, have ±2 encoder tick accuracy, experience a 90% reduction in cogging torque ripple with IQ’s calibration software, and have 50% less volume and are 70% less expensive compared to traditional industrial servo motors. There four sizes available, each of which has a different torque rating, which is dependent on stack length.

With your help, we’ll continue our effort to democratize advanced motor control and create groundbreaking machines and robotic devices in the process. Please join us in bringing the IQ Fortiq BLS42 to life!
