HET new electric motor could boost efficiency of EVs, scooters and wind turbines.
Linear Labs, Ft. Worth, Tx.-based company has invented what it calls the Hunstable Electric Turbine, or HET. The patented HET, the company claims, can generate two to five times the torque of existing motors or generators, in the same-size package. Torque is the amount of work that a motor or engine produces, typically measured on a per-revolution basis.
Makers of electric vehicles, e-bikes, or electric scooters, tend to focus on batteries, and how much better their vehicles become as batteries shrink in weight, size, and cost.
But electric motors are the often-overlooked aspect of that equation. Linear Labs says its electric machines could revolutionize automobiles, wind turbines, and air conditioners as well as robotics, drones, and micromobility vehicles.
Our motors efficiently produce ridiculously high torque at low RPMs totally changing the game for micro mobility, electric vehicles, HVAC, robotics, and air mobility.
Our motors’ reliability is unmatched because the motor can function with one or more phases shorted and out of service. This enables safe operation in mission and life critical applications such as air mobility.
