Nidec Presents Super Small Motor
KYOTO, Japan – After a successful experience of providing e-bike systems in Japan for more than 7 years, the electronic motor manufacturer Nidec Copal has recently announced its ‘invisible’ motor for road, compact and folding bikes.
With more than 40 years of history in developing and manufacturing brushless DC motors, Nidec Copal has all the know-how needed for creating e-bike systems. It led to the 2017 launch of the company’s EPAB-001, a 25 km/h mid-motor system, its first model for the global market.
An efficient high power motor unit with a maximum 95 Nm at 700 W and 90% efficiency is the heart of the EPAB-001. It comes with customizable firmware, triaxial angle sensor, detecting both bicycle riding uphill and falling over, quad sensor and control technologies, providing a natural riding feeling in any road conditions, superior power and torque performance.
In combination with a high safety designed battery, a selectable cycle computer and user-friendly software makes it for Nidec Copal a great fit for e-MTB.
At Eurobike 2017 Nidec Copal also presented its new 45 km/h motor, combining an increased output of up to 770 W with the same size as EPAB-001.
‘Invisible’ mid motor
The newest Nidec e-bike motor is an ‘invisible’ one for road, compact and folding bikes. The Japanese company’s new e-bike system has as its most important feature its small size of 156x90x100 millimeter. This Nidec super compact mid motor unit can be integrated into a down tube making it almost invisible.
The versatility of the motor unit gives it a wide range of applications. The weight of Nidec’s new e-bike system is only 2.5 kilogram while the sensors for torque, cadence, angle and speed are all integrated. With a maximum support of 25 km/h the 36 V motor has an average output of 100W and maximum of 350 W. The motor has a maximum torque of 25Nm.
