    Electric Motors for Motion Base?

    Can anyone tell me the type of motors used on InMotion Sims 3DOF motion platform located here: http://www.inmotionsimulation.com/products.html the $75,000 one?

    The one designed for 5,000lb payload. I have all the tools at my disposal for building a motion base the only thing I lack is the knowledge of the motors used.

    Do you want to go mains powered or low voltage?

    Whats the difference I am i no way an electric motor guru. When It comes time to this step I will have my sim in a separate building out back of the house.

    Badge,

    For these kind of bases, usually they use a DC geared motor. But as the prices of the cervo geared motors are way down now, this is the type you should use. DC or AC (ever worse) are not really made for continues reverse of motion.
    If you want to go in detail, I can fill you in as I am about to build my platform usint these units.
