The DynaMotor™ is an integrated adjustable speed motor and drive unit that produces high torque at low speeds, while virtually eliminating Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) signals.

The DynaMotor looks like an ordinary AC or DC motor. It is the same shape and size and is made from the same mechanical parts; laminations, windings, shaft, end-bell, bearings and housing. The difference is that the DynaMotor uses optically controlled solid-state switches embedded in its rotor windings to control speed and torque. Opening and closing these switches controls the current, and thus the torque, right where it is being produced. The result is enhanced performance in a package that is much more than a motor—a self-contained variable-speed motor and drive unit.
