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
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
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.
