Nidec Copal introduces a family of the largest selection of brush and brushless dc vibration motors aimed at a wide range of applications.  These 10mm OD (0.393”) coin shaped devices include the brushless dc vibration motor, the LBV10L at 3.4mm (0.134”) thick, LBV10B at 3.0mm (0.118”) thick, and the slimmer LBV10C at 2.35mm (0.093”) thick. Excitation voltage is a universal 3.0 vdc.  These higher performance brushless dc coin vibration motors are used in many critical medical instrument applications including insulin pumps and embedded defibrillators.The more cost effective brush dc coin vibration motors are available in two frame sizes.  The popular 10mm OD by 3.0mm (0.118”) thick LAV10 consists of two models, one with a 2.0 vdc input for PWM input signals, and the other with a standard 3.0 vdc input.  Typical applications include force feedback systems.The larger 12mm LAV11 (0.472” OD) by 6.1mm (0.240”) thick brush dc coin vibration motor is used in handheld games and other applications with higher load requirements.  Using only 24mA at 3vdc this is ideal for applications were minimal current draw is critical.  Some of these models are available with rubber boots and specified connectors.
