The Stator Isolator is a multifunctional solution designed to prevent the transmission of axial, radial, and torsional vibrations from the stator to its housing, reducing NVH-related issues such as unwanted radiation of airborne noises. Integrated with e-motor cooling devices, the Stator Isolator also provides an effective seal for circulating oil, essential for e-motor durability and safe operation. Developed using Vibracoustic’s expertise in rubber compounds, the Stator Isolator is designed to withstand long-term exposure to high-temperature oil while maintaining tight tolerances.
The product is designed to be adapted to the existing stator carrier, with unique form-fit geometries that prevent rotation and provide an effective and durable seal.
Initially intended for premium segment vehicles where NVH management is paramount, the Stator Isolator can be integrated into any vehicle using e-motors, offering a comprehensive solution to torque ripple effects and enhancing overall NVH performance.
About Dampers & Decoupling Systems
Isolators and mass dampers are ideal for solving a wide variety of vibration-related challenges transmitted into the chassis from the road surface. Linear dampers are a strategic design element to counteract unwanted noise and vibrations â€“ especially in lightweight structures.
Mass dampers are ideal for use in applications where vibrations need to be balanced with opposing inertial forces. In these configurations, an additional spring-mass system with the same frequency, but opposite amplitude, acts on the vibrating structure, effectively eliminating its vibrations. The way mass dampers work means they can be used in a wide variety of scenarios: transmissions, steering wheels, and even whole convertibles are just some of the applications that make use of this indispensable system to prevent Noise, Vibration and Harshness issues.
Active mass dampers are another way of improving comfort even further. They use a sensor placed on the vibrating structure and an ECU (Electric Control Unit) that controls a solenoid which is able to accelerate the absorber mass. This way, active mass dampers not only come with a design that weighs less and takes up less space than their conventional counterparts, but they are also able to adjust to variables such as additional cargo load, road surface excitation, and temperature.
Decoupling solutions for auxiliary components can address new NVH challenges especially in electric vehicles. Here auxiliary systems like coolers, pumps and compressors are not belt-driven anymore and auxiliary noise and vibrations are significantly more noticeable due to the lack of the masking noises of the combustion engine.
