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.

One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicleís parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but thatís just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
Design engineers need to prepare for a future in which their electronic products will use not just one or two, but possibly many user interfaces that involve touch, vision, gestures, and even eye movements.
