Improve your product margin by reducing the motor and drive system cost. In addition to lower cost motor technology, ETM’s transverse flux motors directly drive systems to enable other cost reduction opportunities;
eliminates the cost of the gearbox
reduces packaging costs
reduces mounting bracket costs
Copper coil windings
in conventional motor
900 grams of copper (3 phases) delivers less than 300 W (10 N-m (7.4in-lb)) Continuous
Resistance in Ohms: 0.100 (1 phase)
ETM copper coil
(1 phase shown of 3)
510 grams of copper (3 phases) delivers 800 W (35 N-m (310in-lb)) Continuous
Resistance in Ohms: 0.017 (1 phase)
Higher Efficiency Motor and Drive System
Reduce electricity costs or improve battery life due to higher efficiency motor and drive system.
Electrical savings our customers have enjoyed
Conventional gearmotor drive systems use motors that are 60-80% efficient with 50-80% efficient gearboxes – this translates to a net efficiency of 30-64%.
ETM direct drive motors can be over 92% efficient. No gearbox (and no gearbox losses) means ETM Direct Drive motors have 60-80% less losses.
A single one horsepower ETM motor can deliver over $1350/year in electricity savings for high duty cycle industrial applications. All of which equates to a 6 to 12 month payback (for replacing the old motor with an ETM motor) in electricity costs alone.
Smaller and Lighter Motors
Expand your design options due to significantly smaller and lighter motors.
Compared to AC motors
Compared to AC motors with the same rated torque, size is reduced by more than 80% and weight by more than 60%.
Compared to BLDC motors
Compared to BLDC motors, ETM produces 4X more torque for a similar size and weight.
Compared to EC motors
Compared to EC motors, ETM motors provide higher torque and efficiency than EC motors at a lower cost.
More Reliable Drive Systems
ETM motors eliminate several moving parts in your drive system including meshing gears, extra bearing and shafts and lubricant shaft seals.
Nearly 10 years and $30M in product development, testing and scaleable high volume manufacturing.
Thousands of ETM motors have accumulated a total of over 300,000,000 hours of real-world operation with customers.
Less Moving Parts
Translates to higher MTBF – ETM’s direct drive technology further enhances reliability by eliminating troublesome gearboxes and the associated cost of downtime, as well as decreased maintenance and increased design flexibility.
Reduce SKU’s and Inventory by 90%
Reduce SKU’s and inventory due to ETM’s wide operating performance window. With ETM’s broad motor performance window (speed and load) – customers have converted their product line using just 2 ETM direct drive motors to replace…
