INTRODUCING INMOTIVE’S MECHATRONIC VARIABLE SPEED DRIVE (MVSD)
INMOTIVE ESTIMATES THAT 100 MILLION MOTORS WORLDWIDE COULD BENEFIT FROM THE MVSD IN TERMS OF LOWER CAPITAL COSTS AND INCREASED OPERATING EFFICIENCY.
(Toronto, ON, June 16, 2014) inMotive’s Mechatrontic Variable Speed Drive (MVSD) introduces game- changing technology that will alter the way electric motors are specified for industrial processes. 75% of electric motors in industrial applications are sized in order to start a load rather than to run it throughout the day – this means they are oversized and under-loaded (Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, 2010). inMotive’s MVSD technology solves the oversizing problem, offers an initial 30-50% capital cost reduction and boasts a 10-15% decrease in operating costs.
THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET THAT ALLOW AN ELECTRIC MOTOR TO BE PROPERLY SIZED TO THE LOAD IT IS MOVING.
The MVSD is a mechanical drive system that varies the speed and torque of electric motors using a unique, patented gearing system and a synchronous belt. It shifts under load, is 98% efficient and can be manufactured using common materials and fabrication techniques.

THE MVSD’S BENEFITS CAN HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON ELECTRICITY SAVINGS AND GREENHOUSE GAS (GHG) EMISSION REDUCTIONS.
Industrial motors are responsible for 40% of global power consumption (GIA, Global Report on Integral Horsepower Motors, 2011). “The MVSD presents a significant greenfield opportunity in a $13 billion global market by enabling motors to be specified correctly. As a ‘clean tech’ energy efficiency device, the MVSD mitigates greenhouse gases (GHG) by decreasing the demand for electricity,” says Paul Bottero, President and Co-Founder. “Electricity generation produces a number of air pollutants, primarily carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, thus a co-benefit of the MVSD is cleaner air.”
TESTED TECHNOLOGY | PROVEN RESULTS
Expert third party testing of the MVSD has substantiated its efficiency advantage, low cost of production, reliability and durability. “The results are astonishing.” The MVSD “far exceeded any expectations I had,” says a senior engineer at a leading multinational motor manufacturer who tested the technology. The MVSD has been successfully deployed at pilot sites including a Walmart Distribution Centre in late 2013.
