DC drive systems for railway project
Motor Control Warehouse, on behalf of Aberystwyth Cliff Railway, had a challenge to solve. The company realised the railway’s control system was becoming harder to maintain due to components being made obsolete. For a solution it turned to Control Techniques. Constitution Hill, Aberystwyth, (more...)
Controlling brushed DC motors with pulsed width modulation
With speed proportional to applied voltage, the coreless brushed DC motor can be simply driven using a continuous linear regulation power supply. But is this always the best solution? Dr Sunil Kedia, Core Market NPD Manager at Portescap, looks at the benefits of using a PWM drive as an alternative (more...)
The drive to minimise power losses in machine tools
New drive controllers and motor filters for high frequency (HF) applications from KEB Automation are helping customers develop highly efficient machine concepts for turbo blowers and CNC machine tool spindles. The objective is to increase performance and protect the motor windings at output (more...)
IVD supplier gets productivity boost thanks to servo system
Mitsubishi Electric has supported Horizon Instruments in the development of a highly automated well plate filling machine. The solution has boosted operations for a leading provider of immunoassays and in vitro diagnostic (IVD) devices, increasing production yield by 700-800% and is projected to cut (more...)
Nord introduces new generation of control cabinet inverters
The new NORDAC PRO SK 500P frequency inverters from Nord Drivesystems are equipped with an integrated multi-protocol Ethernet interface, a multi-encoder interface for multiple axis operation and a USB interface for voltage-free parameterisation. The new control cabinet inverters cover rated motor (more...)

Getting in control: how power resistors benefit motor control
From the electric fans and power tools in our homes, to crane control systems and industrial machinery – motors can be found in mechanical applications of all shapes and sizes. But what exactly keeps them turning? Here, Joshua Piccaver, electrical design engineer at power resistor manufacturer (more...)
Cressall Resistors
What will the digital twin look like in the automation of the future and what role will drive technologies play in this? Dominik Follmann of KEB provides his views. Today, many companies are talking about the ‘digital twin’ but a concrete definition is still very inconsistent. As a (more...)
Helping to characterise analytical sensors
When ExpoPharma designed a new Process Analytical Technology (PAT) powder-stream conditioning chute – a full-scale development platform for characterising analytical sensors for use in continuous pharma or similar manufacturing processes – they turned to Mclennan for a standalone (more...)
VFD specifically designed for CO2 refrigerant condensing systems
A new high-performance variable frequency drive (VFD) designed for OEMs to optimise the performance and the lower the energy costs of BLDC compressors used in heat pumps and condensing units has been launched by Invertek Drives. The new Optidrive Coolvert is one of the smallest in its class, (more...)
New servo drive and motor package increases performance and minimises footprint
Kollmorgen has released a new servo drive, motor and cable motion package, designed to increase machine performance and reduce footprint. The new Kollmorgen 2G Motion System, distributed by Inmoco and aimed at OEMs and system integrators, features integrated safe motion and is easy to install for (more...)
