Unique motor system solutions

Unique motor system solutions The first demonstration system to result from the agreement between Semikron and Chorus Motors to develop Chorus Meshcon motor and drive technology has been used to move a wide-body Air Canada aircraft on the ground without using a tug or its own jet engines. The drive operates with a very high number of phases – up to 20 or more - optimised for the specific application. This offers a system that, because of its small size, high power density and torque-speed performance, achieves what no other motor-drive solution can. As well as in the aerospace sector, applications are expected to be in areas as diverse as starter alternators for cars, conveyors, locomotives, hoists, marine tasks and robotics. Another potential application is as a replacement for some hydraulic systems, where it is desirable for the motor to start and stop frequently, often under load.
