At Pelonis Technologies, Inc., we offer high-performance wheel drives for commercial and industrial projects. Our XR15-W Wheel Drive is a flexible solution ideal for automated mobile robots (AMRs) and automated guided vehicles (AGVs) with low-voltage applications, as well as various other wheel-based propulsion systems. The reason for this lies in its external rotor configuration, which passes rare-earth magnets around a stationary winding.

Take a closer look at the unique features and benefits of the XR15-W Wheel Drive and the applications in which it excels.

XR15-W Wheel Drive Features

The XR15-W Wheel Drive is an ultra-low-profile wheel motor. With an array of beneficial features for handling low-voltage, high-speed, and high-weight use cases, this product gives you the versatility, performance, and reliability you're looking for.

Compact Size and Power

Our XR15-W Wheel Drive delivers the ideal balance of size and power. The small footprint of this design makes it applicable for compact spaces yet doesn't sacrifice power, efficiency, or performance. It generates 8 N-m of continuous torque at 450 RPM, so the wheel drive is compatible with battery-powered and low-voltage applications.

Direct Drive With Integrated Encoder

This direct drive solution doesn't require added gears or transmissions to function. With a high-resolution encoder built right into the wheel drive to provide feedback, users have complete, precision control over positioning and navigation.

Plug-and-Play Integration

A primary user benefit of the XR15-W is its rapid deployment, giving you the ability to use it right out of the box. This turnkey wheel drive solution integrates seamlessly with existing robots and systems as well as COTS drive electronics. All you need is the simple addition of a tire suited to your particular application.

Multiple Drive Wheels

The design of the XR15-W enables you to incorporate more than one wheel drive on your vehicle. This will allow you to carry heavier payloads through optimized weight distribution. You can also increase your vehicle's capacity to handle higher-speed applications.

Dust and Moisture Protection

The XR15-W Wheel Drive was built to withstand diverse working environments. Each one has an IP54-rated housing to shield it from dust and the risk of water ingress, allowing it to function optimally in warehouses, temperature-sensitive storage facilities, and more.

Reliable Operation

Above all, Pelonis Technologies’ high-performance wheel drives are designed for reliability and longevity. The XR15-W incorporates an integrated thermal sensor, allowing you to monitor the temperature to avoid overheating. The reduced mechanical complexity of the frameless motor design also eliminates the need for maintenance.


The XR15-W Wheel Drive is a great option for myriad low-voltage, automation, and robotic system applications. For example, you can integrate this efficient and reliable wheel drive into autonomous vehicles, mobile robots, and various industrial equipment requiring wheel propulsion. It commonly plays a part in the following markets and applications:

  • Agriculture and indoor farming
  • Automated delivery
  • Automotive
  • Food and beverage
  • Hospital transport and mobility
  • Inspections and security
  • Logistics and warehousing
  • Material handling
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Retail
  • Warehouse picking and e-commerce fulfillment
