MOONS’ PowerPlus technology provides 25% to 40% more torque across the entire speed range of the motor. The increased torque is a result of higher motor efficiency, and is available without increasing the drive voltage or current.
Machine Upgrades: Changing existing machines to PowerPlus motors can be a quick path to new models with improved performance. Because the motor, drive and mechanical parts remain the same, benefits include:
• Faster new product introduction • Reduced engineering costs • Easy production phase in • Reduced spare parts inventory
Correct stalling problems with existing machines: Problems with occasional machine stalling are often due to unexpected field conditions such as: low temperature, dirt, and customers using machines in unexpected ways. Using PowerPlus motors can be a quick effective solution.
Overcome drive or power supply limitations in new designs: Often a higher current drive or higher voltage power supply can provide needed extra torque. However, in many designs the drive current cannot be increased without changing to a substantially more expensive drive. And increasing drive voltage can be impractical, expensive, or may not be allowed for safety reasons. In these cases using PowerPlus motors can be especially useful.
Some of the torque producing magnetic flux that links the rotor to the stator is outside the stator teeth. This stray flux adds little to motor torque.
Magnets placed between the stator teeth redirect most of the stray magnetic flux into the stator teeth. This produces additional torque with the same input power
