The Wearable Robotics Association Is Now Accepting Proposals For The Annual Innovation Challenge

The Wearable Robotics Association (WearRA) is inviting entries that represent the most innovative new ideas in wearable robotic technology for the Annual Innovation Challenge at WearRAcon 18. The winner will receive $5,000 to support development and commercialization of the technology.

The Wearable Robotics Association (WearRA) is excited to announce the third annual Innovation Challenge at WearRAcon. Anybody from solo developers to small companies have the opportunity to show their prototypes and ideas in front of the movers and shakers of the exoskeleton industry!


"We enjoyed sponsoring the Innovation Challenge at WearRAcon 17 and look forward to seeing what's new in 2018," said Sean Pettersen, Founder and CEO, StrongArm Technologies. "As a judge, I have the unique opportunity to see first-hand the up and coming technologies in the wearable robotics industry."

All entries will be examined by a panel of wearable robotics experts. Finalists will be selected to present at WearRAcon 18(Scottsdale, Arizona, March 21-23, 2018). WearRA would like to thank the Innovation Challenge Sponsors: StrongArm Technologies and ASU's Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
