Understanding the Motor Constant in DC Motor Sizing
One of the most often overlooked parameters of direct current motors (both brush and brushless) is the Km or motor constant. The motor constant (expressed as Km) defines the ability of a motor to transform electrical power into mechanical power and is a valuable tool for any project or application engineer looking to recommend a … Continue reading Understanding the Motor Constant in DC Motor Sizing
Brush Servo Motor vs. Brushless Servo Motor: which is better for my application?
By Warren Osak, CEO of Electromate A common misconception is that a brushless servo motor is always going to be a superior solution to a brush servo motor. In many industrial automation applications, this assumption can be furthest from the truth. A comparison of the benefits and drawbacks of brush and brushless servo motors is … Continue reading Brush Servo Motor vs. Brushless Servo Motor: which is better for my application?
New Generation of Hexapedal Robots
Whether traversing over the sands of Mars, or walking up a stone path, this robot was designed to move easily and quickly, to jump, and even to flip over. The biologically inspired robots being designed at the University of Pennsylvania aim to provide new levels of mobility and durability, while providing the capability for rapid … Continue reading New Generation of Hexapedal Robots
New High-torque, high-performance brushless servomotors from ElectroCraft
The RapidPower Plus Series of high-torque, high-performance NEMA 23 frame brushless servomotors from ElectroCraft Inc. are designed for higher-precision applications. The low-vibration BLDC motors use M-8 ceramic and rare-earth neodymium magnets, to provide quick acceleration and consistent speed (up to 15,000 rpm). Sealed ball bearings and reduced torque ripple from skewed magetization also ensure a … Continue reading New High-torque, high-performance brushless servomotors from ElectroCraft
