ITK Engineering Develops IEC 62304: Compliant Controller for Dental Drill Motor with Model-Based Design
Sensorless brushless DC (BLDC) motors are well-suited for use in dental drills. They operate with less abrasion than brushed motors, and are more reliable, quieter, and easier to maintain and sterilize. Compared with BLDC motors with sensors, sensorless BLDC motors are less expensive and more compact.
