Title: Vibration motor details
Post by: pnx on June 17, 2008, 04:29:01 AM
Are exact specifications of the rumble motor, like its frequency and such, known?
Closest I got to finding out myself was at SparkFun where they dissected the Wiimote (http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/present.php?p=Wii-Internals), but I couldn't identify the component.

Does anyone know more?

Um ... why?

Frequency (RPM) will vary with the torque.  Torque varies with how firmly you restrict the Wii Remote.  There's also probabably significant variation between Wii Remotes.

As for a data sheet, it's almost certainly a custom part.
