The 100 kW “AZ” podded motor extends Fischer Panda’s electric drive portfolio.
The company now offers electric drive solutions with up to 100 kW per drive for its 420 V drive systems. These are designed for commercial boat operators, in particular water taxis and smaller ferries with a displacement of more than 40 t.
The highly efficient 100 kW permanent magnet motor is brushless and sensorless. The full 800 Nm torque is available throughout the entire speed range. Even at lower speeds, the electric motor provides vessels with a powerful and responsive motor for manoeuvring in and out of harbour. The motor operation is very quiet and requires no gearbox.
The motor is fitted in a robust water-cooled stainless steel housing. Three lip seals fitted on the seawater side make it suitable for commercial applications. The winding is further enclosed in a casting component.
The main advantage of the podded version when compared to the shaft version which is also available from Fischer Panda is that it can be fitted to a rotatable mounting system.
Fischer Panda also offers a rope cutter option which can be fitted to the shaft.
The electric motor can be installed in single or dual drive systems.
The 100 kW podded motor for “EasyBox HV” 420 V drive systems will be internationally showcased by Fischer Panda at the Electric & Hybrid Marine World Expo Amsterdam RAI, The Netherlands from 25th to 27 June 2019. Stand no. 1125.
