ECM PLATFORM ADVANTAGES
ECM technology delivers superior efficiency at reduced cost to the axial gap motor industry.
Typical designs utilizing our patented technology range in efficiency from the low to mid 90’s.
With no steel in the stator, all cogging is eliminated (i.e. no flux reversals).
ECM machines produce the same torque with less than half the mass (Nm/kg) of many competing designs.
ECM motors consist of a housing unit and rare earth magnets on each side of a PCB manufactured stator. Design files are transferred directly to the PCB manufacturer using proprietary software.
DESIGN & OPTIMIZATION MOTORS
CM’s proprietary software automatically and effortlessly translates ECM design specifications to production-ready drawings (Gerber files) that can be manufactured worldwide.
ECM motors (like all BLDC motors) require the use of power electronics to affect variable speed control. ECM designs also integrate seamlessly with the latest control topologies.
INNOVATIVE COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS
Axial gap machines have superior attributes in many applications. While permanent magnets and today’s power electronics have been applied to optimize both radial and axial gap machines, winding structures have been constrained by uniform wire diameter and geometry.
