Infinitum Recognized with Three CES 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree Designations
New Aircore Mobility motor and Aircore EC motor honored for outstanding design and engineering in sustainability and embedded technologies categories
November 17, 2022 – Austin, Texas – Infinitum, creator of the breakthrough air core motor, today announced it has received three CES® 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree designations. Infinitum’s new Aircore Mobility motor and its Aircore EC motor were honored for their outstanding design and engineering in the sustainability, eco-design & smart energy category. Infinitum’s Aircore EC was also honored in the embedded technologies category. This year’s CES Innovation Awards program was very competitive, receiving a record number of over 2100 submissions.
The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)® is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 28 consumer technology product categories. The announcement of the winners was made on November 16th at 5:30pm EST ahead of CES 2023, the world’s most influential technology event, happening January 5-8 in Las Vegas, NV. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions and awarded honors based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design.
Traditional electric motors consume more than half of the world’s electricity. Infinitum’s patented motor design replaces the large, heavy iron core found in traditional motors with a lightweight printed circuit board (PCB) stator. Infinitum motors are 50 percent smaller and lighter, use 66 percent less copper and no iron, consume 10 percent less energy and are 9 times more durable than traditional motors. Infinitum motors are modular by design, making them easier to service and allowing the housing, rotors, and stators to be reused multiple times, serving future generations.
The Infinitum Aircore Mobility is an axial flux propulsion and traction motor designed for applications that drive, fly or sail. Aircore Mobility is engineered to operate at high speeds with maximum stability. The motor supports air cooling or liquid cooling to achieve power densities three to nine times the current density of a conventional motor. The motors are highly efficient over a wide range of load conditions, and modular design makes it possible to rapidly prototype a motor to match the rating configuration that best fits a given application. Aircore Mobility can sustainably power passenger and commercial electric vehicles, as well as aerospace, marine, construction, agricultural machines and auxiliary applications.
The Infinitum Aircore EC is disrupting the motor industry with its patented printed circuit board (PCB) stator and integrated, silicon-carbide-based Variable Frequency Drive (VFD), which provides precise control over motor operations and saves upwards of 65 percent of energy use depending on the application. The Aircore EC can sustainably power commercial HVAC fans and pumps as well as a variety of industrial equipment applications.
“Being recognized with three CES 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree designations for our Aircore Mobility and Aircore EC motors is a tremendous honor and achievement,” said Ben Schuler, founder and CEO of Infinitum. “Our talented team has worked for several years to design motors that go beyond traditional limits, pushing boundaries to deliver products that are better for the planet and future generations. We’re delighted that CES has recognized the outstanding technology design and engineering behind our visionary motors.”
Infinitum will be showcasing its Aircore EC and Aircore Mobility motors at CES 2023 in the Innovation Showcase and at booth 3971 in the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), West Hall for Vehicle Tech & Advanced Mobility.
New for CES 2023 — CES has partnered with the World Academy of Art and Science (WAAS) to showcase the critical role of technology in support of the United Nations efforts to advance human security around the world. For CES 2023, CTA introduced a new category of Innovation Awards showcasing technologies advancing human rights. The Human Security for All category includes eight new tech subcategories.
The CES 2023 Innovation Awards honorees, including product descriptions and photos, can be found at CES.tech/innovation. More will be revealed in January. Many honorees will showcase their winning products in the Innovation Awards Showcase at CES 2023.
Owned and produced by CTA, CES 2023 will take place in Las Vegas on January 5-8, 2023, with Media Days taking place January 3-4, 2023. Attendees will experience new technologies from global brands, hear about the future of technology from thought leaders and collaborate face-to-face with other attendees. The show will highlight how innovations in sustainability, transportation and mobility, digital health, the metaverse and more are addressing the world’s greatest challenges. Audiences will hear from industry experts during live keynotes, including leaders from John Deere and AMD.
