A genius idea, as a rule, so simple that you wonder why nobody thought of it before?
This is what you can feel, seeing that created Electric Infinitum: a stator with the PCB.
It saves a lot of resources such as copper and iron. With regard to electric vehicles, new technologies can be crucial for a higher reserve — to save weight.
Judging by the picture, the stator of the printed circuit Board is much smaller with the stator of a conventional motor.
“Our technology lies in the fact that it takes all the iron and copper of the stator winding. It pulls all the losses associated with the core. Then we add our copper circuits in the printed circuit Board, which increases the efficiency and durability of the stator.
Our printed circuit Board is that it fully sets forth all cylinders,” sums up Ben Schuler, CEO and founder of Infinitum.
In addition to saving resources and weight, the idea of the stator with the PCB also allows Electric Infinitum to place all sensors on the same part. The stator with the circuit Board and also controls the components. In the ordinary motor it is necessary to install sensors separately.
The new motor is also fixed ripple torque, which makes it more silent. Copper conductors are fully insulated, making them less prone to failure.
According to General Director Infinitum Electric, motor with a new stator can reduce the weight of traditional motors to 90% for the same power.
In addition, the new engine is also about 10% more efficient than products of the same level. A method of manufacturing the stator allows it to have the same coefficient of thermal expansion over its entire surface area, making it more durable and reliable.
5 December 2019, the company completed the work on the project, which was invested 12.5 million US dollars. It is expected that the first batch of products will be released in June 2020.
