About Infolytica Corporation

Infolytica Corporation is a provider of Electromagnetic and Thermal analysis software for low frequency devices. It was the first company to be dedicated to providing affordable software solutions for the design engineer. Dr. P. Silvester, Dr. E. Freeman and Dr. D. Lowther founded the company in 1978. In 1986, Dr. J. Webb joined the original trio of founders.

Since 1978, the MagNet software has evolved from a simple two-dimensional analysis system on a basic graphics workstation into a high powered design tool which combines the capabilities of full three-dimensional simulation and inter-operability with other analysis packages with state-of-the-art multi-core processing architectures. Infolytica is a specialist in low-frequency electromagnetic devices and systems and through its engineering teams can bring over a man-century of experience in this area to bear on industrial design problems. Its latest software package, MotorSolve, provides a unique motor and drive design tool.

MagNet and ElecNet provide a two-dimensional and a full three-dimensional modeling system with a true Microsoft® Windows interface and rapid graphical feedback. MagNet and ElecNet are further enhanced with links to the thermal package, ThermNet. MotorSolve provides a fast design capability for a wide range of electrical machines and drives. In addition Infolytica software can be linked to a large range of other packages such as MatLab, Simulink, SolidWorks, Pro-E, etc.

Over the years, with the evolution of technology, Infolytica has continued to push boundaries and deliver more power and accuracy to the designer, achieving important milestone such as:

  • Windows-based software fully utilizing the x64 bit platform
  • True multicore solvers
  • General purpose motion solver
  • Two-way transient electromagnetic-thermal coupling in 2D/3D
  • 3D transient electric field solver
  • Integrated 2D/3D modeling & simulation environment
  • Complete scripting language
  • Automated design optimization software
  • Automated FEA specialized for electric machines

Infolytica's products are widely used in the design of high performance electromechanical products in industries such as aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, electrical appliances, medical heavy industry and power generating.

Infolytica customers include leading electronics, telecommunication, motor and inductive heating manufacturers such as: General Electric, NTT, ABB, Toshiba, Sony, Inductotherm, Northrop Grumman, General Motors, Samsung and Harman Motive.
