Built for continuous-use applications like pump, fan or scanner devices, these RoHS-compliant motors have cog-free motion, using a Neodymium rare-earth magnet rotor and "System FAULHABER" skewed winding. With electronic commutation, the bearings are the only limit to the life of these motors. The 1525…BRC motor is 25mm long and 15 mm in diameter and can achieve a continuous torque of 1.8mNm at speeds up to 16,000 RPM, while the 3153…BRC motor is 53 mm long, 31mm in diameter and has a 28mNm continuous torque at speeds up to 6,500 RPM. The 1525…BRC motor with 9,12 and 15-volt windings and the 3153…BRC model, with nine, 12 and 24-volt windings are boyh available from stock with a 24-48-hour turnaround.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
