It's only fitting that the Incremental Motion Control System Society (IMCSS) should offer a number of short courses. Included in this stable are subjects encompassing design and control of step, dc and ac, brushless, and spindle motors. Up and coming is the Electric Motor Design Course being held April 28-May 3, 2003 during the 7th Annual Training Sessions and Magsoft Users Meeting in Sarasota, FL. This course is targeted for helping both new and experienced electric motor design engineers. Visit www.motorsoft.net.
