Eastern Air Devices' new hysteresis synchronous motor operates at speeds more than four times those of similar motors. It reportedly achieves those speeds with low speed variation, a much desired trait in medical and optical applications. The size 44, 3-phase, single-speed motor operates at 15,000 continuous rpm while maintaining a smooth, quiet, and efficient constant speed drive. Torque rating is 13.5 oz-in with continuous output of 1/5 hp.
