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
For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
