Electric motors offer significant efficiency advantages over hydraulic motors and can also provide additional shaft generated power to hydraulic pumps.
For high power and torque applications where higher efficiency and lower cost of operation are critical, motors using the YASA Yokeless And Segmented Armature technology are the first to approach the power and torque density of hydraulic types. This makes compact axial-flux YASA motors ideal for replacing hydraulic and actuation motors in cranes, winches, conveyors and excavators. The high-torque YASA motors are also suitable for starting gas turbines where the original aerospace design included an hydraulic motor.
YASA motors deliver increased efficiency and reliability over hydraulic motors and simplify the retrofit and integration process to due to their strong similarity in weight and form to a high power hydraulic motor.
