Description

[Technical Field]



[0001] The present invention relates to a motor.

[Background Art]



[0002] A motor includes a rotor and a stator. Coils are wound around the stator. The motor is required to be small in size but high in output power. However, in a case in which the output power of the motor is increased, there is a problem in that an internal temperature of the motor is increased. Accordingly, checking the internal temperature of the motor is a very important issue to secure performance of the motor.

[0003] In order to measure the internal temperature of the motor, one solution is a temperature sensor installed on the coil. However, such a solution has low adhesion between the temperature sensor and the coil, a problem occurs in that the temperature sensor is separated from the coil, and thus there is a big problem in that an error occurs in temperature measurement. In addition, there is another problem in that a process is complicated and difficult because an installation space for the temperature sensor is small.

[0004] The motor incudes a sensing magnet and a sensor which are components for detecting a position of the rotor. The sensing magnet is coupled to a shaft to operate in conjunction with the rotation of the shaft. In addition, the sensor is disposed to face the sensing magnet. The sensor detects a magnetic force of the sensing magnet.

[0005] Precisely detecting the position of the rotor is a very important factor to control the motor. However, the performance of detecting the position of the rotor may be significantly degraded due to electromagnetic waves or noise generated inside or outside the motor. In order to prevent the performance degradation, a cap member configured to shield electromagnetic waves or noise is installed around the sensing magnet and the sensor. However, there are problems in that the number of components is increased because the cap member is installed, an assembly process becomes complicated because an installation process for the cap member is added, and it is difficult to secure the installation space for the cap member.

[Technical Problem]

Hereinafter, the upper portion of the cap member 2000 is referred to as a part of the cap member 2000 positioned on the circuit substrate 1000 when the cap member 2000 is fixed to the circuit substrate 1000. In addition, the lower portion of the cap member 2000 is referred to as a part of the cap member 2000 positioned below the circuit substrate 1000 when the cap member 2000 is fixed to the circuit substrate 1000.

[0090] The upper portion of the cap member 2000 surrounds a space above the second substrate 1200. In addition, the lower portion of the cap member 2000 surrounds a space under the second substrate 1200 on which the sensor 1010 is mounted. Since the space above the second substrate 1200 is covered by the upper portion of the cap member 2000, electromagnetic waves applied to the sensor 1010 from an upper side of the second substrate 1200 may be blocked. In addition, since the space under the second substrate 1200 is surrounded by the lower portion of the cap member 2000, electromagnetic waves applied to the sensor 1010 from a lower side of the second substrate 1200 may be blocked.

[0091] In this case, a length of the lower portion of the cap member 2000 is determined such that a position H2 of the lower end of the cap member 2000 is disposed at a lower level than a position H1 of an upper end of the shaft 100 in a state in which the upper ends of the slots 2100 are blocked by the connecting portions 1300. Such a structure is to block the electromagnetic waves applied to the sensing magnet 800 disposed at the upper end of the shaft 100 and the sensor 1010 disposed above the sensing magnet 800.

[0092] Meanwhile, the locking portions 3210 of the leg portions 3200 inserted into the grooves 1120 are hooked to a lower surface of the first substrate 1100 to fix the fixing portion 3000 to the circuit substrate 1000 such that the fixing portion 3000 is not separated from the circuit substrate 1000.

[0093] Since the cap member 2000 may be assembled to the circuit substrate 1000 using the fixing portion 3000 with one-touch in a state in which the cap member 2000 is inserted into the circuit substrate 1000, there is an advantage in that an assembly process is very simple.

[0094] As described above, the motor according to the exemplary embodiments of the present invention has been described with reference to the accompanying drawings.

[0095] The above-described embodiments of the present invention should be considered in a descriptive sense only and not for purposes of limitation, and the scope of the present invention is defined not by the above-described detailed description but by the appended claims and encompasses all modifications or alterations derived from meanings and the scope of the appended claims, and equivalents thereof.
