MAGNETO 6.2 for 2D Magnetic Field Analysis
WINNIPEG, MB, Canada - Integrated Engineering Software (IES) announces the release of MAGNETO 6.2, the latest version of their 2D magnetic field solver software. Used for applications such as clutches, solenoids, motors, sensors, actuators, loudspeakers, transformers, magnetic shielding, circuit breakers and fuel injectors, MAGNETO 6.2's calculations include force, torque, flux linkage and inductance.
A new voltage coils/winding feature in MAGNETO 6.2 allows users to specify voltage excitation to calculate the current draw. A new energy/coenergy by region command can be used as an alternate method to calculate force and torque. A direct link to SPEED motor design software's brushless DC motor module allows users to launch MAGNETO from SPEED and automatically perform their analysis.
MAGNETO's Hybrid BE-FE Method combines the strengths of the Boundary Element (BEM) and Finite Element (FEM) Methods to provide faster and more accurate solutions. MAGNETO 6.2 features the addition of quadratic finite elements and angular periodic FEM. Quadratic finite elements are especially useful for cogging torque solutions and providing smoother field calculations.

As with previous releases of MAGNETO, version 6.2 features advanced modeling techniques linking directly to parametric-based CAD packages for true geometric representation of complex shapes. MAGNETO's parametric solver also allows designers to automatically vary and experiment with geometry, materials and sources, reducing the tedious, repetitive task of fine-tuning multiple design parameters.
