Portescap introduces the newest addition to our Ultra EC™ mini motor platform – the 16 ECH brushless motor, designed specifically to provide an economic motor solution for high
performance applications. The 16ECH has been developed to be one of the most advanced and highest performing brushless slotless motors in its class, specifically optimized for high continuous torque at low to medium speeds, maximizing power between 40 K and 55 K rpm, and rated speed at approximately 60 K rpm.
The 16ECH provides high performance and is constructed with an enhanced high efficiency magnetic circuit that significantly reduces both iron and recirculation losses, the primary causes for motor stator heating. The new patented EC motor coil also achieves higher available torque and mechanical power compared to similar brushless motors. The result is the new 16ECH stays cooler and offers greater power density than equivalent models within its target operating zone.
The 16ECH offers an effective economic solution for high performance end applications by pairing the right amount of complexity, minimizing motor size and optimizing cost effective materials in its design. By optimizing the electro-mechanical motor design and material selection of the 16ECH, Portescap succeeds in providing a high quality, long lasting, high performance brushless motor that is simple and efficient to operate.
The advantages of the 16ECH make it a great match for low speed, high torque end applications, or applications in the medium speed range (30 K to 55 K rpm). The 16ECH is a good choice for geared applications because of its minimal speed drop and low motor heating under load. Additionally, the 16ECH’s efficiency, power density and long life make it an excellent alternative for a brush DC motor solution.
