Great technological novelties: Vitesco Technologies has presented its new electric synchronous motor with external excitation, which does not need the use of expensive metals or rare earths. The unit was designed to ensure high efficiency and high travel speed, ideal to be used on electric vehicles featuring high-performances or long distances.
PMS (Permanent Magnet Synchronous) motors contain magnets made of expensive, and not always easily provisioned, rare earths. Together with this drawback, Vitesco highlights also the fact that electric vehicles are evolving quickly and are improving in terms of performances. Instead of magnets, electric synchronous motors with external excitation have some coils that do not need rare earths.
The new line of such Vitesco motors has been implemented with power electronics included and it is compatible with transmission systems manufactured by the company itself.
