New Prodigy motion control boards with pre-installed UDPM are newly released motion control boards that provide high-performance control of DC Brush, Brushless DC, and step motors. They are ideal for high precision, high-speed positioning motion control applications.
Step motors are known to be noisy and tend to vibrate when moving. This deep dive, which is part of our Common Motion Control Problems series, explains how you can reduce, and in some cases eliminate, step motor noise and vibration problems.
When it comes to step motors, a new drive technique called stepper servo has some engineers believing they have found the holy grail of positioning motion control - the high performance of a servo motor with the low cost of a step motor.
Learn about three critically important motion control techniques that improve the performance of automated packaging equipment: Web tension control, proportional material spacing, and CAM-based profiling.
This use case explains how you can create a high-performance motion control solution that simplifies programming, provides fast pick and place transfers, and supports multiple motor types.
The MC73112, MC73112N, MC71112, and MC71112N from PMD are new ICs that provide torque control of 3-phase Brushless DC and DC Brush motors with advanced features such as FOC, shunt regulation, PWM signal generation, and more.
