Made for applications in packaging, robotics, medical instruments, assembly, semiconductor manufacturing, engraving, inspection and pick-and-place, IMS' newest NEMA 42 high torque brushless motor has fully integrated drive and control electronics, promising a high starting torque, built-in regeneration circuitry, high positioning accuracy, stability at low speeds, and no dithering at zero speed. It allows greater inertia mismatch and doesn't need tuning. Options include input voltage of 120 or 240 V ac, two motor lengths, internal or remote encoder, control knob for manual positioning and integrated planetary gearbox. It comes in both step and direction (Microstepping) and fully programmable (Motion Control) versions, with aluminum housing for interfacing to standard industrial circular connectors and cordsets.

In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
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.
