- No gearbox, active cooling, or oversizing needed
- C-Motive’s electrostatic motors use printed circuit boards instead of magnets
- A proprietary dielectric fluid inside the machine enables peak performance
No add-ons needed
Traditional electric machines have been around for over 200 years, but require the use of other technologies to aid their issues. Upsizing motors accounts for efficiency losses and safety concerns, gearboxes need to slow down motor speeds, and active cooling is required to reduce heat generation from copper windings.
Traditional electromagnetic machines are optimized for high-speed operation and require a gearbox to slow rotational speed and meet desired torque output. Electrostatic machines are naturally suited for low-speed operation and deliver low electrical losses.
