Our vision is to become synonymous with advanced, dynamic optimization and control of rotating electric machines.
To create a new global standard in advanced, dynamic optimization and control of rotating electric machines that provides economic benefits to users, competitive advantages to suppliers, and a cleaner environment for everyone.
What We Do
Exro Technologies has developed and patented a technology for self-optimizing electric motors and generators to improve efficiency in applications with high variability. Exro’s IP can be integrated into existing applications, or designed with OEMs to create new custom designs that maximize economic performance.
Exro's founder and inventor, Jonathan Ritchey committed to unlock the solution to an age-old problem involving electric machines and variability. By developing a new way to configure the coils contained in electric motors and generators that takes advantage of recent advances in semiconductor switches, a truly intelligent electric machine was born. By solving this critical piece of the puzzle Exro is now positioned to open up a huge number of possibilities as to how we harness and use energy.
These intelligent machines will redefine our way of looking at man's relationship to electric energy and the world.
Who We Are
Exro Technologies has attracted a team of visionaries, seasoned leaders and engineering specialists. Our goal is to introduce and integrate our patented Dynamic Power Management systems across several industries, creating a new technology standard for variable environment rotating electric machines and their associated power systems.
