Basics of DC Drives by Siemens

DC motors and DC drives have been used in industrial applications for years. Coupled with a DC drive, DC motors provide very precise control .DC motors can be used with conveyors, elevators, extruders, marine applications, material handling, paper, plastics, rubber, steel, and textile applications to name a few Permanent Magnet Motors The permanent magnet motor uses a magnet to supply […]

CANADARM – End to end mobile robotic arm

The Development of Legend… Canada’s most famous robotic and technological achievement made its space debut on November 13, 1981. The design and building of the Shuttle Remote Manipulator System marks the beginning of Canada’s close collaboration with NASA in manned space flight. The Canadarm project remains a sterling example of successful international space cooperation. Canadarm […]

What is an Industrial ROBOT?

What is ROBOT? A robot is a programmable, multifunctional manipulator designed to move material, parts, tools, or special devices through variable programmed motions for the performance of a variety of tasks (a robot need not look like a human). Advantages of an Industrial Robot: Safety Reliability Consistency Accuracy Worker Redeployment Cost reduction Types of Industrial Robots: Pick […]

What is Reed Switch?

What is Reed Switch? How does a Reed Switch work? Reed switches are very similar to relays, except a permanent magnet is used instead of a wire coil. When the magnet is far away the switch is open, but when the magnet is brought near the switch is closed. These are very inexpensive. With this device the […]

What is an Industrial limit switch?

What is an industrial limit switch? The standard limit switch is a mechanical device that uses physical contact to detect the presence of an object (target). (opposite to Proximity sensors) When the target comes in contact with the actuator, the actuator is rotated from its normal position to the operating position. This mechanical operation activates contacts within the switch body. […]

What is PLC?

What is PLC? Control engineering has evolved over time. In the past humans were the main method for controlling a system. More recently electricity has been used for control and early electrical control was based on relays. These relays allow power to be switched on and off without a mechanical switch. It is common to use relays to […]
