SMC

Technology

SMC enables consumers of electricity to create highly intelligent and efficient systems. SMC enables building operators, facility managers, and certified contractors to gain real-time visibility and actionable insights for key components of commercial and industrial buildings.

The SMC software commutated motor uses electricity only when it will perform useful work, making it less expensive to own and operate than conventional analog motors. It is the simplest possible electric motor: fewer parts and less complexity result in superior reliability and efficiency.

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.

Comparison

We make the most reliable, efficient, and intelligent motor. We’ve designed a solution that reduces energy costs by an order of magnitude while being incredibly easy to implement. We call it the LED of Motors – it just works!


Our motors are crafted utilizing a patented Switched Reluctance design. Industry results highlight exponential improvements against 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. That saves money for owners and operators. It also reduces unnecessary power plant emissions, and that benefits everyone.

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.

Optimized

Building Platform

The SMC Optimized Building creates a dynamic and configurable mirror of your motor operations, HVAC system performance, and building operations. Every motor comes with its own dynamic building control system configurations or it can easily integrate with existing legacy systems. By leveraging digital replicas, building operators, facility managers, and contractors gain unprecedented knowledge and insights.
