How to Drive a Vibration Motor with Arduino and Genuino

Looking to drive a DC vibration motor using an Arduino or Genuino? In this article, you’ll find simple circuitry, suggestions on using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), and example code to download. Microcontrollers are used with virtually every vibration motor application. Whilst some industrial applications may Continue reading

DC Motor Speed: Voltage and Torque Relationships

Something we have discussed in the past is how varying the voltage to a vibration motor can change the amplitude, particularly with reference to haptic feedback and playing different effects. However, something we haven’t explicitly shown is why this happens, or discussed it in the Continue reading

Driving Brushless Vibration Motors – AB-018 Released

Our latest brushless vibration motor, the 912-101, is a great new product aimed at long life mechanical aid and vibration alerting applications. When it comes to driving the motor, there are some differences between it and the 910-101 coin brushless vibration motor. So we thought we would put Continue reading

Mechanical Mounting for Vibration Motors : Moulded and Machined Enclosures – AB-015 Released

Our newest Application Bulletin is looking at mounting vibration motors using moulded or machined enclosures. These are specially designed housings for a specific vibration motor which can both secure the vibrating motor and help provide secure electrical connections, for example, spring pad vibration motors. There are a host Continue reading

Securing Vibration Motor Leads and Wires – AB-009 Released

We are taking a quick break from our series of helping you mount your vibration motors, see AB-006 for PCBs and AB-007 for Bulkheads, but we’re not moving far from it. Our latest Application Bulletin will help readers with connecting their vibration motors to their drive circuitry. The connection method can depend Continue reading
