The LED of Motors

The Smart Motor system marries a patented high rotor pole switched reluctance motor with matching motor controller, optional IoT Supervisor, and powerful user-friendly software. Components are designed for compatibility, ensuring the critical components of your motor-driven system work together, in harmony, to deliver next-level performance and efficiency.

This revolutionary motor system is inherently:

  • Rugged and corrosion resistant
  • Fault tolerant
  • Optimally efficient over wide torque and speed ranges
  • Highly controllable and configurable
  • Communicative—the only motor that reports what it is actually doing
motors
The simplest electric motor to manufacture means maximum reliability and simplicty.
Built-in sensors and connectivity allow for precise control, maintenance and efficiency.
No rotor current, magnets, exotic materials, or windings around the motor. Simple and bombproof.

Why it Matters

Unprecedented energy efficiency to meet ever-growing sustainability requirements

Highly reliable motor design minimizes HVAC maintenance costs

Remote monitoring and control limit false alarms and service calls

Customizable controls platform meets specific application needs

Easily integrates into existing systems with standard NEMA frame sizes and is compatible with most BMS

Reduces carbon emissions from power plants, lessening the impact on the planet…which benefits everyone.

Comparison

Industry results show the exponential improvement of SMC motors over standard induction motors in performance characteristics including torque, power density, efficiency, versatility, and cost.

Unlike conventional analog motors that constantly draw electricity, the SMC motor only uses electricity when it is needed to perform useful work. The SMC solution reduces energy costs by an order of magnitude while being incredibly easy to implement, saving time and money for owners and operators.

Evolution of

Electric Motors

Since the invention of electric motors two centuries ago, progress in motor technology has been incremental. Nearly all motors in use today are driven by AC induction motors invented a century ago. Software Motor Company is changing that.

The SMC motor utilizes the design simplicity and optimal performance characteristics of the switched reluctance motor. We made patented hardware and software improvements, drawing on the cutting-edge technologies used in mobile computing and electric vehicles to provide intelligent controls. The result is the first software driven motor: the most efficient, reliable, and intelligent motor ever made.

Analog motors simply consume too much energy. Variable speed drives and external controls have reached their limits. The SMC smart motor system delivers world-changing, optimal efficiency–from the inside out.
