Getting Up to Speed with Motor Starters
A wide range of starters provide manual and automatic protection as well as start/stop control for constant-speed motors
Silicone-Rubber Heaters Stretch Product Utility
Although silicone-rubber heaters are best applied to new designs, they can be formed to fit numerous existing products
Vector-Controlled Motors and Servomotors Vie for Position
Vector-controlled motors for motion systems can often do the same job as servomotors for less cost
I/O structures pull networks and controllers together
A proven procedure explains how to match I/O modules with PLCs, PCs, and networks to ensure a successful open-architecture control system — centralized and distributed
Relieving Tension With Electronic Gearing
The declining cost of precision motion controls allows economically replacing mechanical drives with electronic versions in web-processing lines
Selecting Magnetic Shielding Metals
High-permeability shielding materials prevent interference from driving sensitive circuits crazy
PTC Fuses Don’t Give Up
Circuit breakers and traditional fuses are no longer the only devices available for electronic-circuit protection
Smart Software Builds a Better Harness
Electromechanical-oriented software generates virtual wire-harness prototypes, eliminating the physical prototypes usually required for verification
Techniques for Designing Low-Level Circuits
A special class of picoammeters and electrometers differentiate themselves from ordinary multimeters because they measure currents less than 100 attoA (10-16 A)
Choosing an ac Motor
Small ac motors, typically under 200 W, usually fall into one of eight different classifications
Software Simplifies Sizing of Servomotors
Manual calculations for sizing servomotors are giving way to packages that do the same thing in a fraction of the time. But the challenge is finding software that solves all system variables
Flat Connectors, Right Out of the Mold
New engineering resins meet the needs of high-density electronic connectors where thin walls, flat bodies, and tight tolerances are the norm
New Servosystems Pep up Old Machines
Old machines need not be scrapped. They can be given new life with modern servosystems to meet increasing demands for higher accuracy and throughput
Putting screws to electronic products
Self-clinching fasteners and inserts eliminate loose hardware and reduce assembly time for electrical panels, enclosures, and circuit boards
