Infolytica rolled out version 2.4 of MotorSolve, which is a electric motor design software for brushless dc, induction and switched-reluctance machines. MotorSolve makes it easy to design and verify the performance characteristics of an electric motor with accuracy and speed. MotorSolve v2.4 has several new templates, new VHDL-AMS model exporting of an induction or brushless-dc motor for use in multi-domain simulations and now supports multi core processing. Infolytica MotorSolve v2.4 is now available for PC’s running Microsoft Windows 7, Vista and XP.
Cobham Technical Services announced the 3D Advanced Machines Environment, which is a 3D version of their rapid electromagnetic design tool for rotating electrical machines. The new tool combines the accuracy of finite-element analysis (FEA) simulation with a design entry system that creates full 3D models of electric motors or generators within minutes. The software is an application-specific toolbox of the Opera electromagnetic simulator, and enables users to achieve radical new levels of design productivity and performance.
Misumi will offer a series of free technical seminars on the value of specifying configurable components to engineering professionals attending the 2010 ATX West show in Anaheim. The seminar is titled, Designing a Better Machine Faster With the Configurable Component. The seminar will be repeated on each day of the show from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in Misumi’s Hospitality Suite, Meeting Room 201B and C, in the Anaheim Convention Center.
