More useful information about hub motor

Hub motor also called in wheel motor.It is commonly used on electric bikes, scooters, wheelchairs, go carts, robots, wheelbarrows, motorcycles and even cars. A hub motor is usually a brushless dc motor, not a brushed motor. That makes a hub motor life is usually very long.

Power: for the e bike motor, usually the power is from 150w-350w, some are 500w to 1000w and some sports strong e bikes with 1500w-5000w hub motor. You may find some electric scooter or motorcycle hub motor with power of 3kw,5kw,8kw and even 10kw.

Voltage: for the voltage, it can be every voltage in fact, you can apply any voltage to a hub motor theoretically, but you need to pay attention to current and over heating. Anyway, Most hub motors rated voltage are 12v,18v,24v,36v,48v,52v,60v,72v,84v,96v and 120v.

Brake types: a hub motor can be with disc brake, drum brake, or V brake (motor without brake base). For electric wheelchair motors, auto guide vehicle, mobility scooters or some robots, it may needs electric Electromagnetic brakes(EMB). You may also see some e braking or regen braking. E Braking in fact is a function of controller, it give electricity to stop motor moving.  

Types: It is difficult to classify hub motors. It could be classified to geared hub motor or gearless hub motor (which also called direct drive hub motor). We have spoke rim motor or casted rim motor from the hub motor rim appearance. We also can name them as front drive motor or rear drive motor according their installation position to a bike front wheel or rear wheel.It is also ok to group them by low speed motor, high speed motor, high torque motor and so on. You may also see them classified by usage, such as scooter motor, e bike motor, electric wheelchair motor, electric motorcycle motor, electric mobility motor and electric wheel barrow motor.

Sensor types: hub motor can be without sensors, just 3 power cables(phase cable), or with hall sensors, or with both encoders and hall sensors. A motor with encoders usually are took as servo hub motor.

Resistance force: a gearless hub motor’s resistance is very small, it is easy pushed forward and backward. A geared hub motor’s resistance will be stronger than gearless one, but it is still ok to push it forward and reversely. E bike or scooter geared motor’s resistance is weaker usually. That is because the motor inside has a clutch, but this will make the motor not reversible by controller driving. So if you looking for a geared motor, you need to ask first, where the motor is reversible.

Speed: Gearless hub motor usually has higher speed than geared hub motor, but a geared hub motor is usually lighter and torque is higher than the same size gearless hub motor. Geared hub motor is usually for low speed application, like to drive a golf cart, wheelchair, barrow, go cart, mobility scooter and so on. Most of uumotor’s geared hub motor speed is 50-200RPM. Some e bike with geared motor top speed can reach 50km/h. For the gearless hub motor, the top speed can be 2000-3000RPM, some electric scooter motors top speed can reach 150km/h.
