WHAT IS ALTAIR FLUX™?
Altair Flux is the low-frequency solver in the Altair Electromagnetics portfolio. It finds its strength in automating the design of electromagnetic devices such as motors, generators, coils, sensors, and actuators using an intuitive UI and scripting capabilities. It is able to utilize the thermal, electrical, and magnetic characteristics of components to estimate flux, saturation, and temperature in steady-state and transient conditions.
With the advancement in antenna technologies, most industries are looking to develop smarter, connected equipment. Using Altair Flux™ , users can develop appropriate sensing technology that enables accurate prediction of the detection range, measurement error, or condition of operation.
Users can take advantage of tools that are available due to the open-architecture environment of Altair Flux™ – scripting, macros, multi-parametrics. Fine tune models and solvers, capture and automate simulation processes efficiently.
