A pump-motor unit of the type having an impeller connected to an armature and where the armature is separated from a stator by an air gap. The armature comprises a magnetic material having sufficient residual flux density whereby when the torque load on the impeller-armature structure is low, the magnet will act as a permanent magnet to provide synchronous rotation of the armature with respect to magnetic flux generated by the stator and when the torque load on the impeller-armature structure is high, will allow magnetic reversal whereby the armature will rotate asynchronously with respect to the magnetic flux generated by the stator.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
