Brushless DC Motors Design Guide arrow

DC motors convert electrical power into mechanical rotation. Output torque and speed depends on the electrical input and motor design. In this Design Guide, the editors of Design World detail the most common dc motor types as well common ways to quantify their output during the design engineering process.

Servo Motor Drive Compatibility in Motion Control Applications arrow

Among the challenges that design and control engineers must address are the pairing of motors with compatible drive electronics. Motors and drives must be properly matched and configured to ensure compatibility and optimal performance in regard to current, voltage, power and control requirements. Incompatibilities can lead to several problems such as motor overheating, excessive noise, inaccurate positioning, poor torque capability or fluctuating speed. Although these challenges can be daunting, there are solutions available to provide an affordable and easy-to-use platform that minimizes potential compatibility issues.
