The second prototype synchronous motor with three degrees of freedom is developed and tested. First, the principle of the synchronous motor with three degrees of freedom is shown briefly and the structure of the developed synchronous motor is presented. Next, the control system for the synchronous motor is presented. Finally, experimental results of changing the orientation of the output shaft and the output torque measured are shown.
