Ansoft Releases Maxwell v12 And RMxprt v12

Pittsburgh -- Ansoft Corporation announces Maxwell v12 and RMxprt v12. Maxwell is the company's electromagnetic field simulation software used for the design and analysis of 3-D/2-D structures, such as motors, actuators, transformers and other electric and electromechanical devices common to automotive, military/aerospace and industrial systems. RMxprt is a specialized software program dedicated to the design of electric machines.

Maxwell v12 includes a new 3-D electric transient solver that solves time-varying electric fields due to a transient disturbance, such as lightning strikes on electrical equipment. The new version also is equipped with advanced model healing capabilities. This productivity feature will automatically identify and resolve potential problems with geometry imported from popular CAD systems and streamline the solution process.

Additionally, the Ansoft next-generation desktop architecture has been added to the Maxwell 2D solvers. This intuitive, easy-to-use interface offers many new usability enhancements, including advanced 2-D modeling, powerful scripting capability and enhanced post-processing.

RMxprt has been upgraded with a new capability to solve three-phase non-salient synchronous machines, automated project setup for Maxwell and a new wire library allowing motor designers to study the effects of various wire types of a design prior to physical prototype creation.

Maxwell v12 and RMxprt v12 are available for Microsoft Windows(R) XP Professional, Server 2003 Standard Edition, XP Professional x64 Edition, Server 2003 Standard x64 Edition, Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3 (32 and 64 bit) and v4 (32 and 64 bit), SuSE Linux Enterprise Server v9 (32 and 64 bit) and Solaris versions 8, 9 and 10.
