Rockwell Automation Inc. and SuperPower Inc. announced they will work together to design, build, and install high-temperature superconducting (HTS) electric motors and generators for high-horsepower commercial, industrial, and military applications. Under terms of an exclusive agreement between the two companies, Rockwell's Reliance motors and generators will incorporate SuperPower's ceramic-based second-generation (2G) coated conductor technology. Compared to commonly used "first generation" wire, this 2G HTS wire is expected to offer enhanced current carrying capabilities at higher temperatures. For more info, visit www.igc-superpower.com.
