Powered by an Electric three phase AC motor type Linear Synchronous Motor with Permanent Magnets (LSMPM), the motors move along the drive unit by attraction and repulsion of the magnets. The visible motors are available to be powder coated in any RAL colour as well as anodised silver and a stainless steel effect.
