Electric Motors

Plettenberg provides a wide range of electric motors for high-end drive solutions.

We are the global leader in high-performance inrunner BLDC motors. Our product range also includes outrunner BLDC motors and brushed DC motors. Our motors range in power from 20 W to 50 kW.

All our motors are made-to-order and tailored to the specific requirements of our customers. This can include adjustments to housing, shaft, number of poles, winding, cooling, IP rating, potting material, magnet material, adding gearbox, etc. These adjustments allow us to build the most efficient, lightest, most robust but at the same time most powerful motors for the specific application of our customers. Our motors are ideally suited for applications with constraints in space, weight and energy supply.

Our engineering team helps you in designing the right motor solution and supports you in system integration, including ESC configuration, ideal power supply and thermal management.

All our motors are developed and manufactured at our HQ in Germany and built by hand by experienced professionals according to highest quality standards.

Most of our motors can also be used in fuel cell powered systems or as generators/starters in combustion engine powered systems. In addition, we can provide our motors in various forms of integration kits or with custom housings.
