Johnson Electric Launches New Micro Motor Product Line - Compact Design Provides DC Motor Industry’s Best Power Density and Helps Improve Automotive Fuel Efficiency

Hong Kong, 28 December, 2010 -- Johnson Electric today announced the Compact DC motor product line which delivers the industry’s highest power density. This innovation is based on Johnson Electric’s proprietary Curve technology.

Johnson Electric’s Curve technology is deployed within a DC motor platform with a unique 4 pole magnetic design in a curved package which reduces motor size and weight. This power density improvement is perfect for automotive applications where low weight and compact size are required. Overall vehicle weight is a key driver of fuel economy, and the new motors from Johnson Electric help make cars more fuel efficient.

Compact DC motors can be custom engineered to address multiple automotive applications including window lifts, steering wheel locks, door locks, HVAC actuators and most other functions in the car that require DC motors.

“The Compact DC product line reduces weight by 35% in a package that is 25% smaller with the same power as standard DC motors,” said Jim Dick, Johnson Electric’s senior vice president of Strategic Marketing. “This technology innovation aligns with the trend towards smaller and more fuel efficient vehicles,” he added.
