From this Article:
Motion control in radiation-intensive environments poses a serious challenge to the design engineer. Conventional step and microstepping motors are susceptible to high-energy gamma radiation particles... (View Full Article)
(Encoders and Resolvers)
From this Article:
Resolvers are wonderful! Most of all, they are very rugged, withstanding shock and vibration, thermal shock and high and low temperatures with ease. They will reliably perform in vacuum and pressure... (View Full Article)

In the motion control industry, hostile environments often require specially-designed motors to combat corrosion, and a small company in Rohnert Park, California has built an entire business around... (View Full Article)
(Electrical Distribution and Protection)
From this Article:
We have mentioned in previous articles that there are many types of protection concept. One of the simplest concepts to understand and apply to almost any type of apparatus is purging. Purge,... (View Full Article)
