  • AC Induction Motor Fundamentals
    AC induction motors are the most common motors used in industrial motion control systems, as well as in main powered home appliances. Simple and rugged design, low-cost, low maintenance and direct connection to an AC power source are the main advantages of AC induction motors. Various types of AC
  • Brushless washer maker finds reliability in screwless connections
    in brush-free technology so we only use the most reliable components, " Escalante adds. The wash system, based on a Lonworks architecture, monitors inputs from sensors and manages heaters and vector drives for ac synchronous motors. In addition, they send data over
  • Basics of MOSFETs and IGBTs for Motor Control
    Today's motors are increasingly driven via electronic controls, which offer better control of speed, position, and torque, as well as much greater efficiency, rather than via direct connection to their source of power (whether AC or DC). To do this, the motor-control circuit must switch the current
  • Motor J-Box Thermography Route
    The AC induction motor is a critical component of our wood processing operation. For years we have performed infrared surveys on the distribution side, from the pad mount transformer downstream to the Motor Control Center. We also performed mechanical IR surveys on our key equipment, primarily air
  • 'Low-surge' inverters
    New circuit topology lets ac servodrives keep a lid on surge voltages that can otherwise shorten motor life. The G7 inverter provides both open-loop and closed-loop vector control. Open-loop mode uses a flux observer algorithm to extend the speed range and provide true torque control. Closed-loop
  • Don't let regen rock your world
    Regenerative power can trip up servo designs that must stop quickly. A 1.8-hp ac servo, whose business end is visible in the lower right portion of the photo, is one example of a motor application that benefits from the use of a regen resistor. The mechanism on which it resides is part
  • Agilent: Five Hints for Debugging Microcontroller-Based Designs
    using a digital pentiometer Using SPI triggering and deep memory to measure the analog input and digital output for an SPI interface. Hint 3: Monitoring a digital motor speed controller Using an AC/DC current probe and a mixed signal oscilloscope to perform various analog and digital measurements
  • Electronic monitoring relays
    a dialed-in level longer than a delay time the user has also set. The relay switches off once current drops back to allowable levels. In recent years, monitoring relays have also found roles where ac power quality is suspect. Here specific models may be used to signal over or under-voltage coming from
