Permanent Magnet Motors
The PMSM (permanent magnet synchronous motors) series from Bauer Gear Motor is an environmentally friendly line with rotors that integrate embedded permanent magnets made from rare-earth material. According to the company, unlike induction motors with squirrel-cage rotors, this design reduces heat losses from the rotor by 100%, total losses by approximately 25% and increases total efficiency by 10% or more. Units in this PMSM series already fulfill the requirements of the soon-to-be-implemented IE4 (Super Premium Efficiency) classification.
