Despite safety and legislative hurdles, the aerospace industry is moving forward to further optimize unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones, for commercial use. These platforms constantly require improved power densities in small and compact packages. Calnetix’s motor generator systems meet leading specific UAV power density requirements as well as Defense and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards. The combination of our technologies and rapid turnaround capabilities enables Calnetix to meet our clients’ aggressive product development requirements.
Due to UAVs’ increased electrical complexity and demands for greater power output in controls and auxiliary systems, higher power electric generators are being required. Due to their bidirectional capabilities, Calnetix’s Magnaforce™ permanent magnet (PM) motor generators can provide a robust, compact and light-weight starter and alternator configuration for all UAVs. Calnetix’s Magnaforce™ motor generator systems are designed to increase aerospace prime propulsion efficiency, while meeting specific system requirements.
