Which type of electric motor do you size for your conveyor, XYZ table, or robot? Before you select one, you must understand the characteristics of each type of motor in the market.
The viscosity change in liquids can vary the torque required for mixing. For AC asynchronous motors such as AC induction motors, the rated speed is affected by load torque fluctuations, which may cause inconsistency in the final product. Is there a better motor for the job?
There are a variety of ways to synchronize the speed of multiple motors. In this blog post, we will explain another advantage of using brushless motors systems, which is its ability to set speeds accurately and be able to synchronize speeds on multiple axes easily . Brushless motors utilize built-in hall-effect sensors to regulate speed. Even if the load, input voltage, or temperature fluctuates, the speed regulation will always be under +/-0.2% or better.
With the growing popularity of efficient brushless motors, replacing AC motors with these motors brings several advantages. In this blog post, we will uncover one of the advantages that can benefit lighter and compact equipment designs. If we just look at the motors, brushless motors are much more power efficient than AC induction motors. This means a smaller brushless motor can do the work of a bigger AC motor. With recent trends in efficiency, brushless motors should be considered during the motor selection process for new designs.
