From GlobalSpec - a leader in industrial and engineering product news and information

About this eNewsletter

Frequency: 12 issues/year
Description: GlobalSpec's Drives free eNewsletter offers subscribers a wealth of information on drives used in motion control and machine automation solutions. Drive types covered include adjustable speed, servo, stepper, and AC motor drives. Engineers involved in drive design and application must consider factors including motor or drive type, number of axes, power output, torque capacity, rated speed, sampling frequency, analog-to-digital resolution, and communication interface. Information offered in this newsletter may assist in the determination of those factors.
Markets Served: Manufacturing; Automotive; Machine Tools & Metalworking; Industrial Controls

VIDEO: Motion on Display

VIDEO: Motion on Display It looks something like a spaceship that's landed on earth and started operation on its own. The 'Smart Pod' is definitely the future of assembly technology. It's a fully enclosed medical device assembly system with big windows so you can look inside and see what it's doing. Designed in a modular fashion for easy reconfiguration, its Scottish makers have a lot of visible motion going on inside: a pick and place robot, machine vision cameras, ballscrew driven assembly tools, a synchronized material handling system with linear motors, and Ethernet communications. And the entire machine is controlled by a single personal computer.

BLDC Finding Way into Traditional Applications
Dart Controls, Inc.

BLDC Finding Way Into Traditional Applications Brushless DC (BLDC) is a focal point of development for Dart. Two new BLDC products are coming this fall — both in response to customer demand.

We see a steady trend of more customers considering BLDC for their drive package as technology matures, products proliferate, and lifecycle costs swing in favor of BLDC.

AC Drives — 650/650V Series
SSD Drives, a Division of Parker Hannifin Corp.

AC Drives — 650/650V Series The AC650 series inverters provide basic speed control of standard three phase AC motors from 0.3 to 10 Hp (0.25 to 7.5 kW). They are full of useful features including pre-programmed applications — all designed to simplify set-up, installation, and operation. From SSD Drives, a Division of Parker Hannifin Corp.

Lightweight Spy

Lightweight Spy Flying in hostile environments such as Afghanistan, ultralight unmanned aerial vehicles need compact motion systems. The purpose is to gyrostabilize their video spy cameras so that images are crisp and clear. This system uses step motors working at rates of over 10,000 steps/second to create an angular velocity actuator.

Lighting Them Up

Lighting Them Up Fiber optic lighting on buildings at night creates spectacular effects, and is becoming increasingly popular because it is energy-efficient and safe. A high-tech motion controller the size of a credit card was sufficient to drive and synchronize 12 motorized aperture disks on light sources that illuminated this historic building.

More Power for AC

More Power for AC Launched four years ago, a line of AC variable speed drives has been expanded to include units with ratings up to 22 kW (30 hp). That's nearly triple the power rating of the previous largest model. The sensorless current vector control system includes a number of options and expansion modules.

The Goldilocks of AC Drives

The Goldilocks of AC Drives Sometimes, a variable speed drive is 'just right' for the application — it's neither too much nor too little. When speed needs to be varied and controlled, the VSD is just right. But in spite of the fact that it has sophisticated torque and position control, it's really not a motion controller.

ACD Series Servo Motor Drive for Electric
Vehicles

Performance Controls, Inc.

ACD Series Servo Motor Drive for Electric Vehicles Performance Controls, Inc. announces the ACD Series, a family of four-quadrant servo drives that can be optimized to meet the requirements of induction and BLDC motor applications. The ACD Series can be customized to simplify installation, add features, or expand the voltage or current range.

Scrutinizing the Seals

Scrutinizing the Seals Boot seals protect ball joints in car steering assemblies, and analyzing their quality is serious business. In this test machine, engineers replaced hydraulic actuators with two motorized movement axes fitted with multi-turn absolute encoders. Now both axes can be optimally positioned by the AC servo drives for loading and unloading.

Out with the Old Gears

Out with the Old Gears It's a familiar story: an old, inefficient mechanical drive system of gears, belts, and pulleys was unreliable, difficult to maintain, and energy inefficient. The web process was completely upgraded with a series of 13 networked servo motors and drives. Now it's a double the productivity machine experience for the lamination makers.

One Smooth Stepper

One Smooth Stepper This integrated stepper indexer/driver saves engineers designing motion controls systems time, money, and space. It eliminates the need for a separate stepper controller in the PLC, and it doesn't need a separate power supply. Thermal issues are of little concern: it can be installed in tight spaces but needs no fan.

Servo Fits in Your Hand

Servo Fits in Your Hand Even with its compact size (65 x 58 x 19 mm or 2.5 x 2.2 x 0.75 in.) this smart servo drive reaches 600 W peak power (0.8 hp). It embeds motion control, drive, and PLC functionality in one unit, and may be used to control brushless, step, DC, or linear motors.

What Next for Robots?

What Next for Robots? Technology commentator Keith Campbell has seen robots go through three stages of development. In the first stage, robots were considered as human replacers. In their next phase, robots progressed to being the masters of specific work cells. Now finally, robots have come full circle and have been designated as just another motion control component in a system such as a packaging machine. Ten years from now, what will we think of them?

Promising Batteries from Nanotechnology

Promising Batteries from Nanotechnology New ways to store electrical energy derived from alternative sources are the driving force behind today's green technology movement. Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed a method to significantly enhance battery performance. They have developed electrostatic nanocapacitors, which increase energy storage density of by a factor of 10 over that of commercially available devices, and in so doing introduce a new player into the field of candidates for next-generation of energy storage.
