The NEO Vortex is a high-power, high-performance, and high-resolution sensored brushless motor that is compatible with the REV ION System. It features a dockable controller interface that can be mounted directly to the SPARK Flex Motor Controller or our NEO Vortex Solo Adapter allowing control from any brushless motor controller like the SPARK MAX Motor Controller. Its through-bore rotor is the heart of its unique interchangeable shaft system, facilitating easy integration with various robot mechanisms.

NEO Vortex Specification Information

Below is our testing data for the NEO Vortex, Falcon 500 v2, and NEO V1.1. Measured with our internal dynamometer, this data may differ from other vendor published specifications due to differences in testing methodologies. We believe that an accurate comparison of different motors should be made from data taken in the same manner across all tested devices. We will continue to test and retest motors, as the performance of brushless motors can be significantly impacted by motor controller firmware updates. Additionally, we intend to continue our testing of all legal FRC motors and post those results to the webpage which will be coming soon. Documentation of our testing methods will be published as soon as possible so that they can replicated within the community to encourage outside validation of vendor specifications.
