Anyone ever see a video of an electric motor with toroid stators before?
January 11, 2010
I came across a video on Youtube of a motor that uses toroid stators. I have NEVER seen a motor use toroid stators before.
This motor is called the "E-Orbo" and a company named Steorn is launching it this month.
Here is the link to the video.
There are two interesting things about this motor. First, a toroid keeps most of it's flux inside of itself. I never thought that toroids could be used in a motor.
Secondly, the company claims that it does not experience back EMF.
I also see that there are a bunch of folks on Youtube who are trying to replicate it. I might do so myself.
