Rockwell Automation and Infinitum announced an exclusive agreement to jointly develop and distribute a new class of high-efficiency, integrated low voltage drive and motor technology. This solution is designed to help save energy and cut costs for industrial customers globally, while helping them to reduce their carbon footprint and become more sustainable.
Under this agreement, Rockwell Automation’s PowerFlex drive technology will be combined with Infinitum’s Aircore EC motor system. This package will help companies to reduce their carbon footprint with a motor system that is up to 50 percent smaller and lighter, uses up to 66 percent less copper, and consumes up to10 percent less energy than traditional iron core motors.
Rockwell Automation and Infinitum have collaborated since 2021, when Rockwell Automation made an initial investment in Infinitum as part of the company’s Series C funding.
The integrated variable frequency drives (VFDs) and motors will be available in late 2024, exclusively through Rockwell Automation and its partners.
