The BLM700 is a multipurpose closed loop brushless dc motor
control designed for OEM and MRO applications where energy efficiency, space,
installation cost and tight motor speed regulation are a must. Typical applications include commercial
cooking and industrial process conveyor ovens; material handling systems; printing
and labeling equipment; chemical metering pumps; batching and blending
applications. The BLM700 is brushless
motor control, digital closed loop, ratio control, process alarm and
programmable rate meter all in one integrated package. The BLM700 utilizes
concepts from the field tested Dart
Micro-Drive Series, with the added benefit of energy
efficiency. Brushless DC motor drive
technology is the most efficient drive technology. The BLM700 overcomes the typical higher
initial investment hurdle found with other brushless solutions by incorporating
many other typical motor loop functions into one package. By eliminating these other components
(tachometer feedback, alarm relays, ratio control and tachometer) and the
installation cost associated with them, the BLM700 actually SAVES money over
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
The DDV-IP is a two-wheeled self-balancing robot that can deliver cold beverages to thirsty folks on hot summer days. A wireless RF remote enables manual control of the device beyond the act of self-balancing. All of the features of the DDV-IP result in an effective delivery vehicle while providing entertainment to the user.
Eric Doster of iFixit talks about the most surprising aspect of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 teardown. In a presentation at Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, iFixit gave the Surface Pro 3 a score of one (out of a possible 10) for repairability.
