For over 3 years, Ashwoods has been developing Interior Permanent Magnet (IPM) motors for use in the off-highway, materials handling and automotive industries. Throughout this time, we have worked on a range of motors, some of which are specific to customer applications. Ashwoods are now releasing a range of standard products to the market.
The first IPM motor Ashwoods is releasing to the market is the IPM-L33, operating at voltages between 48-80V. This motor has a peak power of 12kW and an S1 rated power of 7kW.
The IPM-L33 is our first model in the IPM range to be commercialized. Its 94% efficiency across its operational speed range makes it perfect in applications running off a limited power supply.
The L33 is available as an air-cooled model (IP25 rated) but an IP65 rated model is also available for those applications with less forgiving environments!
Standard IPM-L33 Motor
Our standard interfaces include a Schafer axle interface, a 19mm keyed shaft and even an Elika BK7 hydraulic pump mounting plate. These standard configurations mean we are well suited in a variety of markets across a range of industries.
Keen to capture even more of the market, we are finalising development of two new models to be released in June and July 2017. The IPM-L50 and IPM-L66 are for the mid-power and high-power applications. The IPM-L50 will have a peak power of 19kW and an S1 rated power of 9kW. The IPM-L66 will have a peak power of 25kW and an S1 rated power of 11kW. A key feature of our IPM range is the fact they all have the same diameter – the only external change is the length of the motors!
