The coin vibration motor has many models to select and it's very economical because of the highly automatic production and the lower labor costs. Coin Vibration motor is mainly used in the following products:
—Smartphones, to provide haptic feedback for notifications, calls, and other events. They can also be used to enhance the tactile feedback of buttons or virtual buttons on the screen.
—Wearable devices, such as smartwatches and fitness trackers to provide haptic feedback for notifications, calls, and activity tracking. They can also be used to enhance the user experience with touch-based controls.
— E-cigarette, by attaching the motor, it can provide tactile feedback to users.When the user activates or deactivates the device, the motor generates a vibration effect that provides haptic feedback to the user.In addition, the motor can also generate a vibration during inhalation, which can enhance the overall experience of using the electronic cigarette. This vibration effect can create a sense of satisfaction that is similar to the sensation of smoking a traditional cigarette.
—Eye masks, to provide gentle massaging and relaxation through vibrations. They can also be used to enhance the experience of meditation or relaxation techniques by providing soothing vibrations to the eyes and head.
The Structure And Working Principle
Coin vibration motors (also known as ERM motors) generally have a disc-shaped housing made of metal, with a small motor inside that drives an eccentric weight. Here are the general steps of how a coin vibration motor operates:
1. Power On: When power is applied to the motor, an electrical current flows through the coils inside, creating a magnetic field.
2. Attraction Phase: The magnetic field causes the rotor (eccentric weight) to be attracted towards the stator (coil). This attraction phase moves the rotor closer to the magnetic field, building up potential energy.
3. Repulsion Phase: The magnetic field then switches polarity, causing the rotor to be repelled from the stator. This repulsion phase releases the potential energy, causing the rotor to move away from the stator and rotate.
4. Repeat: The ERM motor repeats this attraction and repulsion phase several times per second, causing rapid rotation of the eccentric weight. This rotation creates a vibration that can be felt by the user.
The speed and strength of the vibration can be controlled by varying the voltage or frequency of the electrical signal applied to the motor. Coin vibration motors are commonly used in devices that require haptic feedback, such as smartphones, gaming controllers, and wearables. They can also be used for alert signals, like notifications, alarms, and reminders.
The start voltage and drive signals for a coin vibration motor can vary depending on the specific motor and the desired vibration strength. The start voltage for coin vibration motors typically ranges from 2.3V to 3.7V. This is the minimum voltage required to initiate the motor movement and vibration.
However, if the start voltage is too low, the motor may not start or may start slowly, resulting in weak vibration. This can cause the device to function improperly or not at all and may lead to user dissatisfaction. If the start voltage is too high, the motor may start too quickly and with too much force, causing damage to the internal components. This can also lead to a reduced lifespan and may cause additional problems such as excessive heat or noise.
Therefore, it's important to ensure that the start voltage is within the LEADER's recommended operating range and to avoid using voltages too high or too low. This can help to ensure proper motor operation, optimal vibration strength, and maximum lifespan.
Coin vibration motors are designed to be easy to mount and it usually comes with adhesive tape in the bottom. Two brands of adhesive tape are typically used on our coin vibrator motors. They have comparable specifications, and they are selected based on their capability to provide strong bonding to the motor.
1. Lead Wire: The motor can be connected to a power source through two wire leads. This type of wire uses imported wire (Sumitomo), which is made of halogen-free and Eco-friendly material. The wire leads are typically soldered to the motor terminals, and then connected to the power source by terminals or connectors. This method provides a simple and reliable connection, but may require additional space for the wire routing.
2. Connector: Many coin vibration motors have a mating connector that can be used for easy installation and removal. The connector provides a secure and repeatable connection that does not require soldering. However, this method may add cost.
3. Flexible Printed Circuit Board (FPCB): An FPCB is a thin and flexible circuit board with conductive traces that can be used to connect the motor to other components or circuits. This method provides a compact and low-profile solution for installing the motor, and also allows for customization of the circuit layout. However, it may require specialized manufacturing processes and can be more expensive than the lead wire type.
4. Spring Contacts: Some coin vibration motors come with spring contacts that can be used to make a temporary or semi-permanent connection. The spring contacts provide a low-cost and simple installation method that does not require soldering or wires. However, they may not be as secure or reliable as other methods, and may require additional mechanical support.
The choice of installation method will depend on the specific requirements of the application, including space limitations, vibration strength, and ease of installation and maintenance. LEADER's technical experts will provide professional advice based on their project experience during the customer's design phase.

FAQ For Coin Vibration Motors
Yes, coin vibration motors can be customized to meet specific performance or size requirements for different applications. Customization options may include different vibration strengths, operating voltages or frequencies, or housing materials.
The vibration strength of a flat motor can be measured in terms of G-force, which is the amount of gravitational force exerted on an object. Different flat motors may have different vibration strengths measured in G-force, and it's important to choose the appropriate motor for the specific application.
The waterproofness of coin vibration motors can vary, depending on the specific model and manufacturer. Some motors may be designed for use in wet or humid environments, while others are not. If required, we can add a waterproof cover according to the specific needs of your project.
Choosing the right coin vibration motor depends on several factors, including the size and thickness of the device, the required vibration strength, and the power consumption requirements. It's important to consult with LEADER for specific recommendations and testing before making a final selection.
A coin vibration motor and a linear vibration motor are two different types of motors used for vibration. A coin motor typically consists of a rotating offset weight that creates an unbalanced force to produce vibration, while a linear motor consists of a moving mass that oscillates along a linear path to produce vibration. Linear motors are AC- driven and require additional driver IC. However, coin motors are easier to drive by supplying DC power according to the voltage range recommended in the specification.
