Lin’s NEMA 23 BLDC’s provide extremely quiet and smooth operation regardless of speed range, although the optimal performance speed range is 300 RPM to 4,000 RPM. They are also great for those who prefer velocity control with an analog input, do not need holding torque and may be having reliability issues with an existing Brush dc motor. BLDC’s are also a good choice for applications that do not have a lot of power and require a higher efficiency motor.
Lin Engineering’s NEMA 23 BLDC’s are available in four stack lengths: 2, 2.80, 3.60 and 4.53 inches. Depending upon the stack length, these motors are able to produce up to 190 oz-inch of peak torque.
Unlike industrial robots, which suffered a slight overall slump in 2012, service robots continue to be increasingly in demand. The majority are used for defense, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); and agriculture, such as milking robots.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
Design News and Digi-Key presents: Creating & Testing Your First RTOS Application Using MQX, a crash course that will look at defining a project, selecting a target processor, blocking code, defining tasks, completing code, and debugging.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
