LC Drives has developed a range of low inertia, direct drive motors that are smaller in size while maintaining motor power and energy efficiency.

Motors and Generators

Higher Output
More Efficient

LC Drives has developed an exceptionally compact and powerful range of electric motors and generators. Our patented CoolSlot™ approach to stator cooling makes it possible to manufacture smaller, more compact machines that fit in less space than current solutions.

Unmatched drive manipulation

LC Drives’ permanent magnet motors and generators fundamentally alter the approach to the market for variable speed electrical rotating machines in the range of 10kW to 10MW. Our patented CoolSlot™ technology enables complete control of speed and torque, which can eliminate the need for a gearbox while increasing efficiency. The ability to substantially increase motor power at a similar or smaller size than current technology offers unique operational benefits and improved energy efficiency.

Sizing up the competition

Complete customization

LC Drives will custom configure and build electric motors or generators to fit your application needs. The machines are built using a modular design to easily change torque output, and the availability of multiple winding configurations enables the machine to be configured for a wide range of voltages and speeds. This flexibility is vital to the company’s motor/generator platform which can meet almost any requirement and satisfy the specific needs of every customer.

Standard features include:

  • Smaller size and weight improves efficiency at partial loads or lower speeds
  • Patented CoolSlot™ technology
  • Form wound windings
  • Class N Insulation
  • IP55 sealed motor enclosure
  • Fully brazed manifold
  • Operational at either an F or B rise
  • Winding RTDs, 100 ohm platinum
  • Machine sizes from 300 mm (12 inches) to 2000 mm (78 inches) in diameter
