where mind meets motor


  • ​USB and CAN compatibility allows the HMI board to be controlled through the mini-USB port when using the appropriate firmware. 
  • The HMI is also able to communicate to the motor controller board using the USART / I²C Communication port.

Large speed range

  • The motor operates by pure magnetic attraction, hence it has no natural speed or direction. Both can be controlled by the firing of magnetic fields.
  • Ranges can be 30 - 10.000 rpm.
  • Forward / Reverse.


  • In case of a sudden spindle lock or unexpected sharp increase in load, the motor will shut down power to the spindle to avoid any injury.
  • A shut down can be performed without any damage to the parts due to the mirco-computer knowing the exact spindle position.
  • Depending on the application the DVR motor is used in, revolutionary and unique safety features can be provided. 

Programmable Cycles

A full range of programmable cycles can be utilized, such as:

  • Tapping
  • ​Blockage Clearing
  • Manufacturing Cycles
  • ​Spawling up
  • ​Indexing

Energy efficient

  • The computer controlled motor will only ever use the amount of energy input needed to rotate the shaft at the command speed. 
  • If there is no load on the shaft, it will only utilize the energy necessary to overcome bearing resistance.
  • ​Sensors determine when the application needs to run or how much energy is required.
  • Upon start-up the Striatech motor has an amp spike of 3 amps as opposed to up to 13 drawage on traditional AC motors.
  • Intelligent control
  • Quiet Operation
  • Wide Speed Range (0 - 100,000 rpm)
  • Safety Settings
  • Proven Technology
  • Powerful and Compact

switchED reluctance

  • The Switched Reluctance motor is the simplest construction of any motor, it has the fewest moving parts of any design.
  • No rare earth magnets used in its construction.
  • ​Prevents overheating.
  • Long life.
  • ​Reliable.
  • Direct Drive
  • Energy Efficient
  • High Torque at Low Speed
  • Customisable Shape and Diameter
  • Custom User Settings
  • Low Maintenance


Where Mind Meets Motor

Striatech's Digital Variable Reluctance technology is a “smart” switched reluctance motor with proprietary software that allows the motor to merge with the application to result in substantial energy savings (up to 50%) with a wide speed range and high torque and power at low rpm.  Product features include:

Electronic braking

While traditional braking is resistance braking and known for wearing out components, DVR features Electronic Braking. Specifications are:

  • Electronic Braking does not wear out components and is very precise. 
  • Striatech motors can be programmed to do either a hard brake, a soft brake or anywhere in between.
  • Brakes at any speed. 

case study: Shopsmith

​Shopsmith's traditional 1950's multipurpose woodworking machine started struggling in the 1990s. Maturing technology and growing competition required Shopsmith to introduce a completely revamped machine. Striatech brought the revolution for Shopsmith's PowerPro in form of the the digital variable reluctance motor -- introducing an increased smooth, electronic variable speed range from 250 rpm to 10,000 rpm, auto selection of speed using a computer database of operations based on choices entered and a huge boost in power from 1HP to 1.75HP with twice the torque, making the machine a market success.


- I've been very pleased with the precision that can be achieved with the Shopsmith... and wouldn't trade the variable speed feature for a whole shop full of individual tools. Each time I try a new operation, I'm amazed at the engineering and quality that went into this tool! -

Wireless Remote

  • "Remote Ready" Built-in Remote Receiver allows the HMI to be paired and controlled directly to any DVR Wireless Remote accessory.

 The Wireless Remote:

  • ​Adjusts speeds, stop and start
  • ​Use 'wristwatch style' or remove strap to attach magnetically to DVR.

STRIATECH Advantage - power

  • Striatech's motors have a flat power curve over a wide range of speeds.
  • High torque at low speeds, important in many machine applications.
  • Direct drive means full power available - the spindle of the motor is the drive shaft of the machine, not pulleys or gearing.
  • Typically a belt driven machine has about 20% power loss just in the belt system.

Sensor Array

  • Large number of flexible I/O which can be programmed including 1 reset input 12 programmable I/O and 9 expanded I/O.
  • Expanded I/O port is perfect for adding sensors and other I/O to the HMI. The port features low power 3.3 volt and 5 volt outputs which can be used to power sensors and other logic circuitry as well as 9 non-biased I/O port which can be programmed for input and output purposes.
  • The on-board accelerometer and temperature sensors mean that the HMI is able to sense the orientation, vibration and temperature of the board and use this information to control the motor.
