Sparkfun's Vibration Motor is a compact, shaftless motor, designed for non-audible indicators. The motor is encased within a sturdy housing that protects all moving parts, ensuring durability and longevity. Operating within a range of 2-3.6V, this motor performs optimally at 3V, generating a noticeable yet gentle vibration. It can be securely fastened to a printed circuit board (PCB) or tucked away in a pocket, thanks to the 3M adhesive backing. The motor also boasts reinforced connection wires, guaranteeing a secure and stable connection.
The Vibration Motor is versatile and can be used in a multitude of applications. It is an excellent choice for wearable devices, where it can alert the wearer to a change in status. Due to its gentle yet noticeable vibration, it is also ideal for silent alarms or notifications in mobile devices.
One of the key benefits of the Vibration Motor is its compact size. The small form factor allows for easy integration into various devices without adding significant weight or bulk. Furthermore, it provides a tactile method of communication, ideal for situations where visual or auditory signals may not be appropriate or effective.
Unique to the Vibration Motor is its shaftless design. This eliminates the need for additional components, resulting in a more streamlined and efficient motor. The reinforced connection wires also add to the motor's robustness, ensuring it can withstand regular use.
The Vibration Motor operates optimally at 3V, where it produces a strong yet gentle vibration. This makes it suitable for applications where a noticeable but non-disruptive alert is required.
