Product Launch CM-AMB-400

07. April 2015

With the new CM-AMB-400 Celeroton enlarges its product portfolio with the first high-speed active magnetic bearing motor for direct drive of applications with speeds up to 400,000 rpm.

CM-AMB-400 When operating high rotational speeds you are quickly confronted with the equation that high rotational speeds come along with high abrasion and reduced lifetime of ball bearings. As a high speed specialist Celeroton is particularly faced with this challenge. This is why we offer with our ultra-high-speed magnetic bearing an alternative for bearings with highest rotational speeds. With the CM-AMB-400 we have integrated this technology in a first motor and with this achieve unmatched speeds for motors with magnetic bearings.

The new motor CM-AMB-400 combines the advantage of operation in vacuum or special atmosphere with minimum volume thanks to integration of torque generation and magnetic bearing in confined space.

Key data of the CM-AMB-400
Rated power250 W
Rated speed 400,000 rpm   
Outer diameter62 mm
Length74 mm

For further information please have a look at the datasheet CM-AMB-400.

Application areas of the new motor are:

  • Optical systems with high rotational speeds such as beam choppers, rotating mirrors and high-speed cameras
  • Reaction wheels for space applications
  • Special centrifuges

Do you want to test the CM-AMB-400 in your company? Do you want to drive a special rotor load? Or are you looking for a customised modification? We will be pleased to advise you personally. Please contact us at infocelerotoncom or call us on +41 44 250 52 20.
