Pittman brush-commutated and
brushless dc motors can be equipped with tailored solutions to satisfy
particular application demands through custom options. Motors can be customized
with spur or planetary gearboxes to increase torque and decrease speed;
incremental optical encoders for precision motion-control applications to
supply accurate feedback on position, velocity, acceleration, and direction;
and modified motor shafts for designs as necessary with a flat, journal, cross
hole, keyway, slot, groove, gear, pulley, or any combination.
Designers can tailor motor
voltage, speed, continuous torque, and other parameters, and specially
configure motors to accommodate unique design envelopes or mounting challenges
and otherwise adapt to an application.
The Pittman product line is
engineered to provide dc motor solutions to power a wide range of equipment and
devices across industries, including data storage, medical and biotech, automation,
pumps and compressors, and others.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
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.
