Help with DC Motor Drives specifications:

Drive Type Category of motor or system driven or controlled.
           
   Your choices are...         
   DC Brushed Motor       Rotary brushed motors commutate via physical contacts, often spring-loaded graphite brushes biased against the commutation bar. 
   DC Brushless Motor       Brushless motors commutate electronically with no physical brush contact. One common technique for positional feedback to control commutation is the use of Hall effect sensors to detect rotor position. Commutation options include trapezoidal and sinusoidal drive signals to the motor. 
   DC Servomotor       DC servomotors can be of brush or brushless design, and are used for position control and other industrial automation applications. If brushless, the commutation of the three phases will typically be either trapezoidal or sinusoidal; the term "DC Brushless" often connotes trapezoidal commutation of a brushless motor with Hall Effect sensor feedback for commutation control. 
   Linear Motor       Linear motors generate force only in the direction of travel. The motor technology resembles rotary motor technologies simply oriented in a linear fashion. Linear motors are capable of extremely high speeds, quick acceleration, and accurate positioning. Linear motor technologies include moving coil, moving magnet, AC switched reluctance design, AC synchronous design, AC induction or traction design, linear stepping design, DC brushed design, and DC brushless design. 
   Voice Coil Motor       A voice coil motor consists of a magnetic coil placed in a magnetic field.  When current is applied to the coil, electromagnetic flux is generated that causes the coil to move.  So named due to its resemblance to audio speaker operation. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized or proprietary style of motor or axis drive.

   Robotic Motion Controller       Robotic controllers use digital motion control hardware and software for the coordinated multi-axis control of industrial robots and robotic systems 
   Servo Amplifier       Servo amplifiers are electronic modules that convert low level analog command signals to high power voltages and currents to operate a servomotor. 
   Regenerative Drive       Regenerative drives support motor braking and take the power generated by the braking action and send it back to the power source, such as the AC line or a battery. 
   SCR Drive       DC motor drive that uses SCR (Silicon Controlled Rectifiers) circuits for rectification of the AC input to produce the DC drive current. 
   PWM Drive       DC motor drive using PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) to regulate the DC voltage level output to the motor. 
   DSP-based       Digital signal processors (DSP) are special microprocessors used where real-time manipulation of large amounts of digital data is required in order to improve or modify it. They are used for fast and high resolution motion control, and special programming equipment is used to program the DSP chip. 
   Microcontroller Based       Microcontrollers are complete computer systems on a chip, typically combining an arithmetic logic unit (ALU), memory, timer/counters, serial port, input/output ports (I/O) and a clock oscillator. Microcontrollers require programming from external devices.

   Features       
   Your choices are...         
   Soft Start       Control circuitry designed to allow the controlled motor to ramp up to full speed over time. This is often designed as a safety feature for motors moving large or fragile loads, and as a preventive measure for excessive current draw. 
   Dynamic Braking       Method of motor braking in which the power supply is disconnected from the motor windings; the rotating motor then functionally become a generator whose power (heat) is dissipated through an often sizable resistor shunt across the windings.  Also referred to as "rheostatic" or shunt resistor braking. 
   Injection Braking       Applicable to AC motors only. The AC power is disconnected from the windings and a DC current is "injected" into the windings, creating a magnetic field opposing the motor rotation, thereby slowing and stopping the motor. 
   Regenerative Braking       Method of motor braking somewhat similar to dynamic braking, in which the motor is disconnected from the power supply, and the power generated from the rotating motor is sent back to the supply.  In some configurations, this generated power is used to recharge a battery that supplies the power to the drive. 
   Brake Output       Relay or switch output designed to activate or control an external brake. 
   Home / Limit Switch Input       Device has inputs for home and/or limit switches, indicating start, stop, or end-of-travel positions of the associated axes. 
   Auxiliary I/O       Additional channels of input and/or output for communication with or feedback from the device. 
   Alarm / Status Monitoring       Function in which one or more parameters are monitored for compliance with design operating parameters. In the case of a fault or non-compliant operation, an alarm or other signal can be generated to alert the operator or control system for appropriate action. Examples include overvoltage, overcurrent, and overspeed protection, temperature monitoring, and torque limiting interlocks. 
   Self-Configuration / Auto-tuning       The unit is designed to detect operating conditions and independently adjust its settings for optimal system performance. 
   Self-Diagnostics       Device can intelligently detect fault conditions or other system problems and report the specific problem to the operator or control system. 
   Electric Vehicle Design       Designed primarily for control of electric motors in industrial, recreational, or other electric vehicles. Many include application-specific features such as reverse alarm output, signal for speedometers and tachometers, etc. 
   Other       Other unlisted or specialized features. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
