Electric motors for vehicles, machines and marine applications

Danfoss Editron electric drivetrains are based on synchronous reluctance assisted permanent magnet technology (SRPM). They are liquid-cooled and designed to work in harsh operating environments. Such as traction motor in heavy machinery or propulsion motor in marine applications. They can work both as a generator or as a motor.

Main product groups

Compared to conventional technologies, like induction machines (IM) or standard permanent magnet motors (PM), the electric SRPM motors offer smaller dimensions, lighter weight and higher efficiency.

The motors are available in various speed and torque ratings:

EM-PMI with power up to 1,000 kW – high torque with high efficiency

EM-PMI project based machines with power up to 6,000 kW – high torque with high efficiency

EM-PME outer rotor machines with power up to 50 kW – high torque with high efficiency

All permanent magnet motors can be tested with full load against the actual desired workload in our own test laboratory. We can feed the work load cycle of the machine into our testing system and run loading tests in the laboratory. This significantly reduces the testing time at your premises.

Applications

Traction motors for vehicles

Propulsion motors for marine vessels

Variable-speed generators for hybrid vehicle or marine vessels
