what are the + and - leads on this hard drive motor? Answered

please tell me the + and - on this hard drive motor


It doesn't have any. Its an AC motor, and relies on you putting three sine waves between the pins.

+1. it's a three phase AC motor. It can be driven with square waves, but doesn't like it.

A DC motor's speed won't be constant, an AC motor like this, driven by the right signals, stays absolutely rock solid.

Unlike, some very old floppy disk drives I have seen.

Yes,but they had feedback from the index hole I suspect.
