ELINCO pioneered the development of the Hysteresis Synchronous motor and was a leader in
this technology. In the early 1980’s, ELINCO recognized the inherent advantages of brushless D.
C. motors and developed the slotless brushless D.C. motor, which gives unique performance
D.C. motors (see Why “SLOTLESS” brushless DC motors?). This has resulted in a strong
proprietary and patented position with “slotless” brushless D.C. motor technology. The company
has produced over 6000 slotless brushless D.C. motors.
ELINCO acquired the General Electric SELSYN (self synchronous) motor line in 1993. In 1994
ELINCO acquired the Inertial motor product line and relocated the line from Doylestown,
Pennsylvania to the Norwalk plant. The Inertial products have extremely low inertia and are able to
accelerate to 5000 RPM in less the one millisecond. In 1994 ELINCO acquired a part of the
Philips Airpax motor line.
ELINCO’s overall product lines now includes Slotless Brushless Motors (form wound and
random wound), PMDC Motors, Brushless DC Motors, and Air Moving Devices.

since. The company moved to Wilton Connecticut in 1962, and then to Norwalk, Connecticut in
1973, and again to Fairfield and Bridgeport Connecticut in 2000, where it currently resides.
The plant is clean, well maintained facility in Bridgeort, CT and offices in Fairfield, CT. It is
