Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) April 26, 2010
Robert Ireland, CEO of Next Alternative, Inc.(N4H.F)(NEXZ), announced that the firm would soon be adding a new version of the pancake motor to its existing product line.
Mr. Ireland was recently accompanied by Next Alternative’s Pete Law and technology and implementation consultant Kendall Scheer, in a visit to Denver-based CIM Research. CIM develops high performance electric motors and generators and is the company manufacturing this latest model – the Alpha Series pancake motor. Next Alternative is funding the production of the Alpha Series and will hold rights to its distribution. The mission was to review the progress and learn specifics of the new design.
According to Ireland, “The implications of the new Alpha Series motor are incredible. This motor has huge potential in that it has wide applications from small golf cart and UTV vehicles to road bound electric cars, trucks and beyond.” He noted that there is also interest from the aircraft industry as the Alpha Series motor can be used in airport tugs for ground support or as a hub motor for moving aircraft on the tarmac.
Typically, pancake motors are small in size, but hold a large torque. They are extremely efficient in regard to power and can be configured to many different Kv constants to suit applications. In addition, they can be stacked. The Alpha Series pancake motor includes an air cooling and water cooling system for larger vehicles that generate more heat over extended periods. Next Alternative is excited about the vast potential this motor holds in the future progress of the firm’s mission to forge ahead in the realm of alternative energy solutions.
