  • RFID Coil Design
    In a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) application, an antenna coil is needed for two main reasons: To transmit the RF carrier signal to power up the tag To receive data signals from the tag An RF signal can be radiated effectively if the linear dimension of the antenna is comparable
  • Straighten up and go linear
    are key design targets. Two basic types of linear motors are iron core and ironless. Iron core motors provide higher forces for their size, but exhibit large force variations due to the magnetic attraction between the coil and magnet track. They also require heavy bearing systems to withstand
  • Voice Coil Motors
    Voice coil motors offer excellent control characteristics where linear actuation is required over short distances with electronic control systems. Comparison of the force characteristics vs displacement, and vs current, for voice coil devices and solenoid actuators shows the difference between
  • Motor Technology: Tubular Linear Motors
    to linear conversion mechanism. Eg. ball screw, rack and pinion, toothed belt. This is an extremely efficient motor design. The armature motor coils completely encircle the stator magnets to ensure optimum use of stored energy. All the standard motors operate without any forced cooling. The benefits
  • Linear Variable Differential Transformer Technology
    Differential transformers are electromagnetic devices for translating the displacement of a magnetic armature into an AC voltage, which is a linear function of the displacement. They are basically composed of primary and secondary coils wound on an air core and a movable armature is used to control
  • Voice Coils vs. Solenoids: What is the Difference?
    The question of whether to use voice coil actuators or solenoids for small displacement motion control applications comes up often. This article explains the key differences between each product and why you might choose one over the other for your application. A non-commutated DC linear actuator
  • Kimco Application Guide for Voice Coil Actuators (.pdf)
    Voice Coil (VC) Actuators are direct-drive, hysteresis-free devices used for providing highly accurate linear or rotary motion. By virtue of their high acceleration and the absence of commuta-. tion, voice coil actuators offer numerous advantages in such applications as medical, semiconductor
  • How to Apply Direct-Drive Linear Servomotors
    to produce linear motion. Direct-drive linear motors are more likely to use self-supporting 3 coils to position a linear shaft filled with permanent magnets. Typical of motors taking this approach is the Quickshaft Series from The servomotor design lets the controller drive the shaft to new positions
