  • Lab Automation: The Use Of Actuators In The Response Against COVID-19

    Mobidiag is positioned to answer the need in the diagnostics aspect of the fight against COVID-19. The newly released Novodiag COVID-19 test system operates with the use of actuators.

  • Turning To Integrated Driver Electronics For BLDCs

    Despite advantages, brushless DC motors (BLDCs) have presented their own challenges in terms of technology, design, and capabilities. Typically, complex and bulky cabling has been required between motor and amplifier to attach discrete logic components “outside” the motor frame. With the latest advances in driver electronics that now can be integrated directly into brushless motor designs, BLDCs are evolving rapidly to become faster, smaller, more versatile, more controllable and more cost-effective.

  • Reasons For Turning To Slotless Technology

    Brushless motors have gained greater acceptance in industry for a wider range of applications previously dominated by brush commutated products. At the same time, manufacturers have further sought to challenge conventional wisdom by improving brushless motor design. 

  • Brush DC Motors Turning More Advanced

    Motor designs have incorporated new components in new ways to help extend motor life, and new or improved materials have been tapped to promote motor quality and output. Current and future brush commutated DC motors continue to move in highly advanced directions.

  • Customization To Suppress Electromagnetic Interference In DC Motors

    A variety of active and passive approaches can be adopted to reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI) in systems that rely on precision motion control. The challenges are to maintain system integrity and DC motor performance without adding significant cost or weight to a subassembly.

  • Cartridge Brush Design For DC Motors And Gearmotors

    The traditional method for mounting copper or silver graphite brushes in brush commutated DC motor and gearmotor assemblies has been to solder the brushes onto standard cantilever springs to enable the required constant contact with the commutator. However, this conventional spring design carries inherent drawbacks that can be overcome by housing the brushes within a specially designed cartridge and utilizing torsion springs to ensure desired even force over the life of a motor.

  • Empowering Proper Selection Of Motor Technology

    Insights into how each available electric motor technology generally compares with others can help lighten the evaluation burden and ultimately contribute to proper selection for an application. This white paper delves into the basic selection factors in motor technologies.

  • Using Rapid Guide Screw (RGS) For Precision Motion In New Sample Digestion System Is A Smart Move

    New technologically advanced devices are constantly being developed for use in environmental laboratories. Generally speaking, their primary benefits lie in reduced analysis time, increased accuracy and greater reliability. A fully automated sample digestion system for mercury and metals sample preparation, DEENA helps alleviate the bulk of manual sample preparation while greatly reducing errors associated with sample handling. With less time devoted to sample preparation, laboratory personnel are free to perform other duties with the peace of mind that DEENA will provide consistent data in a clean, safe and timely fashion.
