Can I replace a brushed DC motor with a brushless (BLDC) motor and controller?

Yes. Many companies are increasingly replacing brushed DC motors with brushless DC motors in a wide range of systems. The key to making the transition successful is knowing the performance characteristics and key specifications of the motor that you are wanting to replace and then being able to make a good match with a brushless DC motor. If you are not sure how to find out the performance characteristics of the motor that you have you can start with the part number of the motor and research that. Key characteristics to look for are max and nominal RPM and torque. Also bear in mind that the physical size of the motor might be important to your application. Please let us know if this is important to you.
