Brushless Permanent Magnet motors


Slotless Axial flux motor
APPLICATION: High speed motor for a
test rig of a rotor on electrodynamic
magnetic bearings

Reduced axial length


Dual stator configuration allows using
the motor for controlling the axial
position
Reduced coupling between rotor and
stator dynamics
No cogging torque
Air wound coils allow simple
construction
and
cooling
