Which Motor Is Right for Your Manufacturing Process?

Several different types of electric motors have been developed to address the needs of various manufacturing processes. Let's examine some of the most common types of electric motors and their strengths within the industry.

How to Choose a Controller for Motor Applications

For many engineers, pulling all the parts together - the controller with embedded or separate algorithms, the drivers, and the MOSFETs - is a multidisciplinary task, and one for which they don't want to "reinvent the wheel."

Inaccuracies with Motors and Drivers: Who is the Culprit?

Is Your Step Motor and Driver Contributing to the Inaccuracy of Your System?

High Efficiency Motors

To understand the concept of high efficiency motors, you must first know how to calculate efficiency and the losses associated with the motor components themselves.

High-Performance, High-Speed Motor Breathes Life into Ventilators and Respirators

New motor technology has changed the way modern ventilators and respirators are designed, making them quieter, more compact and more efficient.

Brushless DC Motors vs. Servo Motors vs. Inverters

We have put together a summary (Table 1) that compares these three technologies in a simple to understand format.

Method for Calculating Moment Loads on Linear Actuators

With the actual equipment, there are various kinds of equipment conditions and driving conditions for electric actuators and cylinders and thus, it is very difficult to explain all the operating conditions.

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
