The ceremonial first post!
I was researching some Motenergy motors and found 2 (ME1114 and ME1012) that are the same size and that I think will suffice for what I'm working on. The only difference I've been able to find is that the ME1114 are newer and have a sin/cos sensor in them rather than the hall sensors that the ME1012 has. Apparently having a sin/cos sensor allows for better rotor positioning and smoother acceleration at low speeds (or so i'm told), however the cheapest ME1114 I could find was still $200-300 more expensive than it's otherwise identical brother. Thoughts? Is it worth it to fork out the extra cash for that sensor configuration? What am I missing?
