Before looking at the problems that vibration causes when using a laser interferometer, and the ways that its effects can be overcome, it is worth briefly describing the way that laser interferometry works.
Throughout history, there have been industrial applications that require a load or force measurement within a system that involves either linear electric or hydraulic smart actuators.
Cables with the proper shielding, i.e. foil plus braided shield or semi-conductive fleece with foil and a braid shield, prevent the VFD system from radiating electrical noise that can interfere with the surrounding networking, wireless communication, and industrial devices.
This article will be expanding on the different types of feedback devices in VFD (Variable Frequency Drives) and Servo applications, as well as some of the typical applications in which they are utilized.
There is a demand signal to produce a machine capable of Metal printing on the front lines. Phillips has developed a Hybrid technology that adds a Wire fed Direct Energy Deposition head to a Haas machine.
Electrical engineers often work with motor cables and servo cables, which both supply motors with electrical energy and have a nominal voltage of 600/1,000V. But what exactly are the differences between the two cables?
Two Ultra Motion Servo Cylinders were successfully employed to control the telescope's elevation and azimuth throughout the flights. The ARTEMIS system had to operate flawlessly at 70,000 feet and in ambient temperatures as low as -60°C.
The design and functionality of a DC motor controller depend on the characteristics of the motor and the electronic system it powers. Using the example of a brushed DC motor controller, we'll consider its operating principles and circuit design.
ExOne has been awarded a U.S. Department of Defense contract to develop a fully operational, self-contained 3D printing "factory" housed in a shipping container. Now under development.
While keeping a budget in mind is necessary for any business decision, there are places you shouldn't cut corners-and that is especially true for PCB and electronic manufacturing.
Three-phase induction AC motors produce mechanical power for almost 80% of industrial applications by providing extremely high efficiency and environmentally rugged characteristics. Effective control of these motors is needed to tackle heavier load problems .
Compared to the classic hydraulic solution, these electric drives offer numerous advantages in terms of robustness, safety, and operating convenience. They are also easier to maintain and run more efficiently to save cost.
When designing a motor control system, it is not always clear if a braking resistor is required and, if it is, how to proceed in selecting a braking resistor. This post is intended to simplify that process so it is clear when and how to select a braking resistor.
The Polyamide material exhibits very good chemical resistance and is especially oil resistant. A reduced lead-time and cost over our standard metal threaded nut is always good for buyers and planners.
Design is the foundation of any engineering project, even at the component level. Once engineers have established the desired function of a device or machine, it's important that they develop the right components to carry out that function.
