DVR Technology

What is DVR® Motor Technology?
DVR® (Digital Variable Reluctance), is a Switch Reluctant Motor with unique technology. Through Intelligent Control, this variable speed motor ‘talks’ to the internal computer constantly monitoring conditions, giving it the edge on a conventional motor. DVR® Motor Technology features Direct to Spindle Power, Intelligent Control, Energy Efficiency, High Torque and Power at Low RPM, and a Wide Speed Range all packaged in a compact unit.

Smart Operation 
Easy to operate, the NOVA DVR range of machines are the only SMART machines on the market to automatically adjust the speed for the application It can save and store speed information on different preset settings and switch from one to another immediately, with just the single press of a button. This Smart Technology can detect the input power source, giving the DVR® motor the ability to operate at a variety of different voltages (100V to 240V) and without further modifications being required.

Powerful Torque 
The DVR’s computer automatically detects the load on the output shaft, and adjusts power extraction according to the load. As a result, the DVR® motor has its highest torque at lowest speed and has a flatter torque curve over a wide range of speeds. This unique characteristic means the DVR® motor can be mounted directly to the output shaft, which allows it to achieve better output by eliminating the power lost in a traditional gears/belts and pulley drive system (On average, a belt driven machine has about 20% power loss just in the belt system alone). Smart computer controlled motor only draws as much power as it needs for the project being worked on. The Striatech DVR motor can save up to 50% energy and emissions over conventional motors.
