Helmond, Netherlands, August 08, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Internet start-up Confirmat has expanded the functionality of its website http://www.specAmotor.com. Ten months ago the free and brand-independent electric motor selection website has been launched. Since that time the database is doubled in size to over 12.000 motor configurations and 23 manufacturers.
The new functionality
Now there is the possibility to interactively determine the feasibility of a motor. Previously the website visitor had to perform a search query, or browse through data sheets. Now, however, a motor can be virtually tested and the site will report back directly if the motor is capable of handling the visitors drive-problem. Also in a clear language is stated why a motor eventually is not suitable; in the different tables with calculation results the opinion is objectively founded.
A second innovation of the site is the request for quotations in batch mode. This means that in one order a request for quotation is sent to every manufacturer that has a suitable solution according to the calculation results of specAmotor. This saves the visitor a lot of actions.
Leave the calculating to specAmotor
The calculations that specAmotor performs are complex. For every situation the motor temperature is determined. Temperature is dependent on motor parameters like the resistance and the torque constant, that in fact are not constant as the name may suggest, but change under the influence of heat-development. specAmotor takes this influence into consideration so that possible overheating already is noticed virtually.
specAmotor saves time
The goal of specAmotor is to shorten the development time in the machine construction industry and related industries. It does this by automating time consuming issues like the gathering and interpretation of information from different sources, and by making the necessary calculations to determine the correct motor configuration.
By applying Web 2.0-technology the visitor is invited to test drive the electric motor virtually so that confidence is gained about the fitness of purpose of the motor. This new functionality will shorten the motor selection time and save the engineer a lot of effort.
Confirmat is a Dutch company and is started in 2004 and develops internet concepts for the technical community.
