AC Linear Induction Motor
H2W engineers have developed a new Linear Induction Motor (LIM) that is capable of generating 2900 N at a 3% duty cycle. Operating at 400 VAC, 75 Hz, the synchronous velocity of this LIM is 675 in/sec [17 m/s]. This LIM was designed for high speed operation, however it can also be operated at stall (zero speed) in order to produce static thrust. This motor is encapsulated into a stainless steel enclosure using high temperature (400 F) potting compound which protects the components and seals it from moisture.
