The heartbeat is a silent powerful DC servo motion controller motor provides low torque start ups with improved braking and easier set up.

The two component motor separates the electronic controls from the motor and the solid 22 lb Stainless Steel Motor Housing provides superb vibration free operation. The extreme precision of both the motor and the tolerances in the machined components provide extremely quiet and accurate speed control. The base features a fully inset ¼ inch silicone dampening o-ring is inset specially machined grooves in the polycarbonate base for isolation and superb coupling to any surface. The control board enables super precise acceleration control allowing the use of a pure silicone single drive wheel. This provides improved coupling and reduced noise transfer.
