The gearbox offers peak efficiency of 97% and a torque rating of 4,000 Nm. It has a continuous torque rating of 2,500 Nm and a maximum input speed of 7,000 rpm.

The MP21 liquid-cooled axial flux motor offers a compact design with high torque and power density. It is designed for battery voltages from 200 to 800 V dc and has an efficiency across its operating range of more than 95%. It has an IP67/IP6K9K enclosure rating for added reliability.

The flexible motor design offers positional choices for mounting inverters, HV cabling and cooling points. Motors are optimized using Magelec inverters, Omni noted. The motor and gearbox combinations can be tailored to the needs of the OEM.
