BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY · AN ENVIRONMENTAL AND ECONOMICAL GAME CHANGER
According to government agency research, a few hours in a petrol powered boat has a bigger environmental impact than a road trip by car from Sydney to Brisbane.
Petrol powered marine engines are among the highest contributors of hydrocarbons, oxides, and nitrogen emissions in the country let alone the world.
Electric motors are quiet, clean, reliable and economical to run. Where combustion engines have hundreds of moving parts, which can all break down, an electric motor has just one moving part - they are extremely reliable and almost maintenance free.
What are the advantages with introducing MAGS?
Electric boat manufacturers try to have the propeller shaft connected directly to the motor. They usually avoid transmissions since the transmissions have internal friction.
The magnetic transmission can be fitted with coils, to generate power when it is back driven by the propeller. This give boat owners the possibility of using brushless or AC motors for their boats. These motors are more efficient, and do not have brushes.
You do not need to use an electric motor that can also be used as a generator, the coils in the transmission generate electricity.
