SM-KIT8
All-in-One Motor Kit

This is a great educational tool in helping to learn basics of electricity, magnetism and electronics. It includes all parts necessary to assemble any of the 4 different types of brushless electric motors:

  • Simple reed switch motor
  • Reed switch motor with the transistor
  • Motor on a Hall Effect IC
  • Motor with optical control

Basic knowledge about electronics and some soldering skills/tools are required for assembly.
