In this article you will find out what a motor X is and how to use it

An electric motor an electric motor is an electromechanical converter in which electrical energy is converted into mechanical energy.
Technical description:

– Size (L*W*H): 40x24x24
– The motor rotates the adapter part
- Operating voltage: 6V
– F-Dupont 2pin connector for connecting to another device
– Speed from 200 rpm

Functionality when connected to the RED X controller:

The motor rotates the shaft in the selected direction with a user-defined speed in the range from 0 to 1000 c.u.

Principle of operation

The electric motor consists of a stator and a rotor. The stator is 2 magnets that create a magnetic field. The motor windings are alternately connected through brushes to the power source. One by one, they turn the rotor to a small angle, and the rotor rotates continuously creating a moment.

Motor connecting scheme

RED Code example
*Physically, you have to get the motors connected to ports M1 and M2 turn the shaft counterclockwise for 1 second, then the motors connected to ports M1 and M2 turn the shaft clockwise for 1 second, after that, the procedure is repeated endlessly.
