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
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
