Emerson Process Management’s Fischer Fieldvue DVC6205 remote-mount digital valve controller is suitable for applications where accessibility, extreme temperatures (up to 120°C/250°F), extreme vibration or confined space make integral mounting difficult or impractical.
Depending on the application, grease can present several benefits over fluid lubrication. Greases provide a physical seal preventing contamination ingress, resist the washing action of water and can stay in place in an application even in vertically mounted positions. Greases are suitable for applications where relubrication is infrequent or economically unjustifiable, due to the physical configuration of the mechanism, the type of motion, the type of sealing or the need for the lubricant ...
This overview of industrial motor controls from Maxim Integrated Products highlights the differences and subsystems for DC motor, brushless DC and AC induction motors. An in-depth analysis of critical subsystems focuses on monitoring and measuring current; sensing temperature; sensing motor speed, position and movement; monitoring and controlling multi-channel currents and voltages; and high-accuracy motor control with encoder data interfaces.
Variohm Eurosensor is the exclusive UK distributor for sensor specialist Contelec. In this application note, the company focuses on the flexible measurement of motor speed with a product concept that makes use of a slim external sensor to measure the speed of the main shaft without any physical contact between the magnetic actuator and the sensor unit.
Bison Gear and Engineering’s gearmotor sizing guide explains how to determine torque and how to adjust the gearmotor to suit the duty cycle. It also discusses the importance of considering overhung load and shock load.
