Roborigger adopts automobile synchronous motor for load control
Roborigger, a WA-based company developing the award-winning wireless load controlling system that allows crane operators to remotely control and release the loads, has adopted innovative electric motors developed for next-generation electric cars by Protean Electric in their latest model.
The Pd18 is a lightweight, compact, integrated synchronous motor and inverter package that provides a high torque output from zero RPM– ideal for steadying and supporting heavy loads. It was initially used in a Roborigger unit for loads of up to 20 tonnes, and more recently it has been deployed on a larger model Roborigger rated for loads of up to 35 tonnes.
