Motor-CAD is the most complete and integrated electrical and thermal motor design software. Motor-CAD is dedicated to the electromagnetic performance of motors and generators and the optimisation of their cooling.
Motor-CAD enables motor designers to produce optimum designs for performance, energy efficiency, size and cost reduction. Motor-CAD makes the best use of the latest modelling techniques to provide the fast and accurate analysis tool for machine designers.
Motor-CAD provides the ability to quickly and easily perform performance tests on prototype designs. Accurate electromagnetic and thermal calculations can be done in seconds.
The results are presented in an easy to understand form for analysis to allow design decisions to be taken in an efficient manner.
