Despite of great variety of motor types (direct current, electronic commutator
motors, synchronous, permanent magnetic field synchronous motors, hysteresis and stepper motors) used, the induction motors are horse of the industry.
For increased flexibility, the electronic commutator
(electrical switch) can be mounted remotely and air- or liquid-cooled.
Attached to the patient's heart and aorta, it has a motor that consists of a copper-wave wound stator, a rotating magnet assembly, and an electronic commutator
. The commutator uses solid-state Hall-effect sensors which, based on the requirements of the patient's body, determine rotor position.
