Power, Intelligence, and Controls
All in One
With a forward-thinking design philosophy, we’ve reduced the size and weight of our motor, unlocking design potential for you to make any machine lighter, quieter, and more efficient.
We’re breaking new ground in design, performance, and serviceability by re-thinking every aspect of a motor’s lifecycle. This approach has resulted in a breakthrough air-core design that dramatically improves efficiency, reliability, and ease-of-use.
A motor system that delivers
Infinitum re-imagined the motor, achieving total efficiency with a
motor that is smaller, lighter, quieter, more durable, and more efficient.
This is how we do it.
Air core motor with (patented) PCB stator
By etching copper coils directly onto the PCB stator, we eliminate the heavy steel core and copper windings of conventional motors. In addition to reducing the size and weight by half, removing the iron in the magnet’s path eliminates torque ripple, cogging, stator hysteresis and eddy current losses. The result is a significant increase in efficiency across a wide range of load conditions. The PCB stator also makes it much easier to automate the manufacturing process to ensure repeatable, consistent quality.
Superior motor control via integrated Variable Frequency Drive (VFD)
Our state-of-the-art variable frequency drive (VFD) facilitates variable speed applications, reducing overall energy usage by running the motor at lower speeds. This provides a level of control not available in conventional motors and the high switching frequency of the VFD, up to 200 kHz, also dramatically reduces audible noise.
Motor control software
Plug-and-play with our monitoring and control software that requires zero programming. It all comes together in the GUI dashboard where you can visualize data from the motor’s operation – from voltage to temperature to energy use and maintenance alerts.
- Motor configuration and testing
- Real-time monitoring, control and error logging
- Firmware updates
Infinitum motors have built-in IoT capability to enable optional over-the-air software updates, on-demand access to real-time performance analytics, and remote monitoring.
Our smart motor system collects and interprets sensor and actuator data from the controller, to understand its environment and determine the optimal motor speed minimizing waste.
The Infinitum advantage
EASY TO INSTALL
The effort required for installation and maintenance of conventional motors is significant. Infinitum’s integrated motor and drive saves space for the control panel, reduces wiring costs, and shortens commissioning time. The motors also feature plug-and-play monitoring and control software that requires zero programming.
EASY TO MAINTAIN
Optional IoT connectivity makes predictive and prescriptive maintenance possible. Being able to collect and access test data for the life of a motor can provide real-time, actionable data from anywhere so early warning signs can be addressed. In the event a component ever needs replacing, the modular design facilitates replacing just that part rather than the entire motor.
A MOTOR TO LAST A LIFETIME
The majority of our components can be reused and kept in service for over 100 years. Our circular design strategy means we reuse what we can, recycle what we can’t and remanufacture motors to give them a second life, and beyond. We reuse what we can, recycle what we can’t and remanufacture motors to give them a second life.
Infinitum PCB stator lifetime is 10x longer
Our motor generates as much power as a traditional AC induction motor but has half the weight and size, makes a fraction of the noise, and emits at least 25 percent less carbon. Our PCBs are manufactured by an automated process, which means they’re much more uniform and reliable than hand-wound machines. We made them even more reliable by simplifying their topology, which has to do with the motor’s phases.
