Brushless -vs- Brushed DC Motors

The main difference between a brushed motor and a brushless motor, (besides the differences implied by the names), is that the brushed motor uses an electromagnet system as the rotor surrounded by permanent magnets (and sometimes more electromagnets), and the brushless motor has a magnetic rotor surrounded by electromagnets. A brushless DC motor (BLDC) is a DC (direct current) electric motor that uses an electronically-controlled commutation system, instead of a
