How to Select the Right Motor for Your Robot

As both an industry and an entire class of technology, robotics changes and advances rapidly. Whether as a hobbyist or seasoned robotics engineer, you need to know each component inside and out. You should also know how to choose between several different variations.

Design and Operation Features of a BDC Motor Controller

The design and functionality of a DC motor controller depend on the characteristics of the motor and the electronic system it powers. Using the example of a brushed DC motor controller, we'll consider its operating principles and circuit design.

5 Challenges a Motor Has to Overcome on Mars Home

Outer space is unforgiving. This is why precision drives embarking on a trip to other planets need to meet extremely high quality standards.

IP65, IP67, IP68…What Do Protection Ratings Mean?

If you are working on a project that calls for an electric motor unit, you will certainly have come across the terms IP65, IP67 and IP68. What do these protection ratings cover? Which protection should be chosen based on your project? Here's a brief answer to these questions.

Covid-19: Drive Technology and Physical Distancing

The sanitary crisis linked to the diffusion of Covid-19 requires everyone to apply measures of social distancing. Motorized and automated solutions are being developed at high speed as a solution.

Ironhand superpower under control

Ironhand ® from the Swedish company BIOSERVOTECHNOLOGIES is a soft, active exoskeleton for the hands and fingers. Normally, a gripping action is made possible by the muscles in the lower arm and hand.

ElectroCraft Drives Feature Easy Setup and Operation

The ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Universal Drive takes the guesswork out of selecting and configuring a drive and motor combination by incorporating all of the features and functions necessary to provide optimal control of a wide variety of brushless DC motors.

Intralogistics: AGV vs. AMR

Until recently, AGVs were the only option for automating internal transport tasks. Today, a more sophisticated technology is competing with them: Autonomous Mobile Robots AMR. Although both AGVs and AMRs allow materials to be moved from point A to point B, the comparison ends there.

Robots on the Set

Intelligent robotic cameras that automate live transmission are used on stages, racetracks, and playing fields, operate autonomously - and provide a perfect TV experience.

maxon motor - Formulae Handbook for Design Engineers

The extensive collection with illustrations and descriptions includes formulas, terminology and explanations of the calculations that are relevant for drive systems. A flow chart provides assistance in selecting the right drive for each purpose.

DC Motors as Generators

Both brushed and brushless DC motors can be operated as generators. However, there are some important points to consider when designing the drive.

DC Motor/Gearmotor "MTBF" A Few Facts About Life Expectancy

If the duty is continuous, that means the motor, if properly sized, will reach thermal equilibrium typically in about 20 Minutes of continual operation (possibly more, depending on the size of the unit).

Power Density in Robotics

A question of torque - Inspection robots for pipes and ducts, rescue robots in disaster areas, or humanoid robots - they all have one thing in common: They are mobile robots that aid humans.
