Philo updated his 9v Motor comparison page

Yes, I was waiting this for some time and suddenly Philo updated his 9V Motor comparison webpage, including the new Power Function motors and also the 9V train motor (now that LEGO finally decided to send it to the history books...). See it here!

That' s an amazing work full of valuable technical information, regarding those motors and their electrical/mechanical characteristics. Do not loose it!
It is also a good reference, whenever you need to now more about the LEGO motors or decide which one to use for some specific application.

You can find there, data regarding: weight, rotation speed and consunption current at no-load working conditions, as well as many other measures for stalled operation and different voltage supplies.

I'm really looking foward to see those power functions motors in action. I hear they have a really good torque.

You are right Roger!

Specially the PF XL is very comparable to NXT motor, either in terms of torque and rotation speed.

Both bring great Power to the constructions.

Also, combining the PF system (not only the motors, but also the receivers) with the IR Link you mentioned on the other blog entry, the output limitation of the NXT is circumvented!
Of course, nothing like using a dedicated output multiplexer, but still...

As for the PF motors, I sure hope LEGO launches some set with them already in 2008! Since they appear to have gotten a taste for refurbishes (like the catalogue items for the 1st half of 2008 suggest), why not a relaunching of the 8868 (the pneumatic truck with compressor), with perhaps an automatic PF compressor? Sa-weet!

That's an old dream of mine!
To get a LEGO integrated and efficient compressor, as well as electric controlled pneumatic valves ;)
Nothing that cannot be built, but certainly they would be much integrated (... I mean smaller).

I believe Power Functions will bring it all over time.
Lets wait...
