Celeroton’s new power analyzer CA-450-25 can measure 3 motor phases and 1 converter input with a bandwidth of 1 MHz and simultaneous sampling. This allows for accurate power measurement of converters, motors and spindles at high rotational speed and/or high current ripples, where state-of-the-art power analyzers fail.
• Commissioning of motors and spindles within a minute?
• Regular exchange of spindles using the same converter?
• Test various modifications on the drive system?
• No motor-datasheet available?
• Modify the test bench and directly continue working with it?
All this is possible with one click in our new, automated parameter detection routine available for Celeroton’s converter line. It is integrated in all new CC-75-500 and CC-75-400 devices as well as for previous versions with an appropriate update. Please get in touch with us via email@example.com for a firmware- and software update if necessary.
Celeroton launches its new product line of ultra-high-speed turbocompressors with speed and size not achieved so far.
These turbocompressors allow for superior solutions for various applications in terms of compactness, light weight and high efficiency. Celeroton’s miniature turbocompressors replace standard compressors with the same pressure ratios and flow rates by being 50 times lighter, smaller, and highly efficient.
Application areas are compressors for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) in future all electric or hybrid cars, air supply for decentralized and mobile pressure and vacuum generation, breathing air preparation, air supply in mobile and local fuel cell systems and heat pumps in buildings as well as household appliances.
As first two products, the turbocompressors CT-17-700 and CT-17-1000 are available. With custom made turbocompressors various fluids and a broad range of pressure ratios and flow ranges can be covered in the power range of 10 watts up to a few kilowatts.
The supply of complete turbocompressors from one source guarantees commissioning with one contact only, optimal matching of turbomachinery, motor and converter and short lead times also for customized solutions.
We are ready for a challenge; talk with us about your compressor application!
Celeroton has launched the newest version of its electronic converter CC-75-500. This is the world’s first converter that allows for sensorless control of permanent-magnet synchronous machines (PMSM) and brushless dc motors (BLDC) up to 1 million rpm – and this from standstill.
The integrated pulse-amplitude modulation (PAM) drives BLDC and PMSM, commonly used in dental- and medical tools and machining spindles, at higher rotational speeds with minimal losses in stator and rotor. Due to the sensorless speed control, hall sensors can be completely omitted, even for speeds below 10% of the nominal speed where standard converters would usually require a position feedback sensor. This results in a simplification in the motor design and less cables and connectors, with a resulting increase in reliability.
Celeroton’s technology allows for highly compact drive systems with highest maximal rotational speeds and full torque at low speeds in various applications. And all this without encoders or hall sensors!
We are proud to announce that Prof. Dr. Nicolas Wavre has accepted to join our board of directors. Mr. Wavre (1945) graduated from the Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL) in 1970 and obtained his PhD degree in 1974. In the same year, Nicolas Wavre founded ETEL SA, a leading Swiss High-Tech company focusing on Direct Drive technology, primarily Brushless Linear and Torque Motors for the high tech market. Nicolas Wavre has managed ETEL from its inception to the level of 220 employees in 2002 with sales of CHF 40m. In 2003 Nicolas Wavre decided to resign from his job as CEO of ETEL to become an independent consultant for the management of SME’s and for the design of high performance motors and actuators, while keeping his teaching activity at EPFL. He holds several board seats (ETEL SA, Banque Bonhôte & Cie SA, Syderal SA, Seyonic SA, and Neode SA).

Celeroton extends its low voltage converter series towards the lower speed and power range with the launch of the CC-75-400 converter. The product is especially suited for high-speed spindle machining centers due to its compact design. It allows for sensorless control of permanent magnet synchronous machines (PMSM) and brushless DC motors (BLDC) from 5,000 rpm up to 500,000 rpm. The new product is characterized by a maximum output power of 400 W. The following I/O ports are available:
analog input (1x)
analog input (1x)
analog output (1x)
digital inputs (2x)
digital outputs (2x)
thermocouple temperature measurement (1x)
PTC or NTC temperature measurement (1x)
10 V, 200 mA power supply (1x)
Celeroton is a spin-off company from ETH Zurich and was founded in August 2008. The company’s goal is to provide ultra-high-speed electric drive solutions for dental, medical and micro-machining applications.
