Infolytica Europe changes its name to Infologic Design

Following the acquisition of Infolytica Corporation by Mentor (a Siemens Business), the European sister company (Infolytica Europe) has now changed its name to Infologic Design Ltd. This highlights the fact that we are now an independent reseller, and are not part of the acquisition process.

Infologic Design continues as the only reseller of the Infolytica Software throughout Europe, Russia and CIS countries.

Case Study - "Vibrations in Electric Motors - MpCCI FSIMapper Case Study"


Electromagnetic forces in motors excite structural vibrations. They lead to material failure and to noise in the surrounding area.

To predict vibrations in early development phases, FSIMapper, a translation tool from Fraunhofer SCAI, provides the possibility to transfer the electromagnetic forces to structural NVH analyses.

In this case study we consider a 4-pole-24-slots electric motor, which is modeled in MagNet. The rotor rotates with a frequency of 30 Hz and the coils exhibit an odd parity. We are interested in the vibrational behavior of the stator.

Software Update

A new version of the MagNet software suite (including ThermNet, ElecNet and OptiNet) has been released. MagNet’s 3D nonlinear electromagnetic problems can be solved significantly faster and with higher accuracy. Imported or native components can easily be made into a coil with just one button click. ThermNet supports new motor cooling options. There are many other significant improvements and new features in this release.

Find more information here, and watch a video highlighting the new feature here.

Free Webinar - "Simulate Power Transformers using MagNet 2D/3D"
Thursday 29th January 2015 at 6:00pm UK time (7:00pm mainland Europe)

In this free webinar watch how using MagNet’s non-linear surface impedance and perfect electric insulator modeling are extremely useful when designing medium to large power transformers. Using these features significantly reduces the mesh size, hence the solution time, without sacrificing accurate results. This will be a live and interactive event.

For those that missed it, this can now be viewed from our Webinar archive.

Free Webinar - "Simulating power transmission lines with ElecNet"
Tuesday 4th March 2014 at 7:00pm UK time (8:00pm mainland Europe)

To completely understand the complexities of the electric field produced by and surrounding a power transmission line, the insulator and tower requires accurate simulation software.

Three examples are covered in this webinar: Insulating structure for a transmission line; Insulating structure installed on a 3-phase transmission line; Lightning striking a surge arrester.

For those that missed it, it is now available in our archive.
