Stepper Motors And Their Impact on Acceleration Ramps
Stepper Motors And Their Impact on Acceleration Ramps This article explains stand test methodology for generating force versus velocity curves and the benefits of adding acceleration and deceleration ramps. One of the first parameters that is considered when choosing aRead more
What are the parts within an Electric Motor
How do they work? If you study the basics of electricity, you know that electricity and magnetism are, for the purposes of physics, united into one force called the electromagnetic force. An electric motor is a device that utilizes thisRead more
DC Brush Commutated vs Brushless Motors
DC Brush Commutated vs Brushless Motors Each of these DC motor types convert electrical energy into mechanical energy through the interaction of magnetic fields. This discussion will be based on the latest technology whereby one of those fields is producedRead more
What are BLDC motors?
What are BLDC motors? They are made with permanent magnets driven by the windings in the stator. The principle is basically “rotate the magnet”. It is equipped with absolute position sensor, required for phase commutation. They do not employ brushesRead more
Hysteresis-reluctance synchronous motor
Hysteresis-reluctance synchronous motor Hysteresis-reluctance motor is a hybrid salient pole rotor synchronous motor, the rotor of which is made of hard magnetic material with a large residual magnetization. The electric motor starts due to the eddy current torque and hysteresis torque and operates due to the hysteresisRead more
Types of Servo Motors – Construction, Controlling and Applications
To choose a motor is the hardest task, based on design criteria such as cost, torque, acceleration, positional accuracy, power and much more. There are many types of motors like DC, Servo, and Stepper available for different types of application. But, ServoRead more
