Flywheel Callout

Serving as a mechanical battery, the flywheel is a kinetic energy storage system that replaces traditional backup batteries and performs in applications where batteries and other storage devices fall short. The VYCON flywheel stores kinetic energy in the form of a rotating mass and is designed for high power, short discharge applications. VYCON’s patented technology used within the flywheel includes the flywheel hub that is formed from aerospace-grade steel, a high speed permanent magnet motor/generator, contact-free magnetic bearings that levitate and sustain the rotor during operation, and a superior touch-screen control system that provides vital information on system performance. These innovative technologies enable the VYCON flywheel to charge and discharge at high rates for countless cycles without degradation.
