Bringing Windows 10 support programming to Orion motion controllers

Bringing Windows 10 support programming to Orion motion controllers
Intelligent Motion Control (INMOCO) has announced an update to the MotionDesk programming environment for the ORION motion controller from ORMEC. The update to version 3.6 introduces a number of new features, but perhaps importantly brings support for Windows 10, enabling users to take advantage of the increased security for PCs delivered by Microsoft’s current operating system.

Deliver drop-in replacements for hard-to-source motors

Deliver drop-in replacements for hard-to-source motors
With a number of manufacturers having dropped the availability of DC servo motors from their catalogues, designers of critical equipment in areas such as medical, military and industrial applications have had to face the prospect of rethinking their designs around an alternative motor.

Motion control looks like it's here to stay

Motion control looks like it's here to stay
Industrial control is a highly developed field that advances year on year as the underlying technology advances. But will it and all its specialist sub-sets continue to thrive? Gerard Bush, a motion specialist with INMOCO, here gives us his opinion on the matter. All technologies develop over time, with most eventually reaching an upper limit where they are as advanced as they can be. This is clearly evident in older technologies where the peak has been reached.

Compact high performance integrated circuits for torque control

Compact high performance integrated circuits for torque control
The motion control experts, INMOCO, have available a new torque control IC (integrated circuit), designed for applications with limited space but which need to control noise, vibration and power consumption. The new Juno torque control IC is made by Massachusetts company Performance Motion Devices, and complements the existing Juno motor control ICs.

Low maintenance electromechanical actuator range improved

Low maintenance electromechanical actuator range improved
Complementing the existing Diakont range, INMOCO has introduced the new Diakont DA78 series electromechanical actuator. The DA78 uses the same roller screw technology as the DA67, DA99 and DA140 actuators and offers size and performance levels between the DA67 and DA99 units. All DA actuators have an integrated motor and roller screw to provide superior performance in a compact space envelope.

Make or break? It's all about the component compatibilty

Make or break? It's all about the component compatibilty
When designing modern machines and technical equipment selecting the right components and sub-systems requires the consideration of many factors; some more obvious than others. Gerard Bush of INMOCO offers some insight into the process. Engineering designers usually start a project knowing what they want their machine or equipment to achieve; naturally to working backwards from there to get an idea for an initial concept design.

Pan and tilt cameras have better than ever tracking abilities

Pan and tilt cameras have better than ever tracking abilities
CCTV pan and tilt drives are required to be faster, quieter, smaller, smoother and even more accurate than ever; however security operators also need them to be easy to set up and run. Additionally with all this, they insist that costs continue to come down, so how do you achieve all these elements? Gerard Bush of INMOCO explores how today’s high performance off-the-shelf motion products can quickly bring sophisticated systems to market and reduce the price point.

Digital amplifier delivers multi-motor capability

Digital amplifier delivers multi-motor capability
The ATLAS digital amplifiers from Performance Motion Devices, available through INMOCO have been able to control a user’s choice of DC brush, brushless DC and stepper motors for a long time, however the latest version of the compact amplifier brings enhanced multi-motor capability. This allows the motor type to be programmed by the user with no board changes required. The result is even greater flexibility in the development of motor control applications.

Expanding the horizons of motion control chips

Expanding the horizons of motion control chips
Off-the-shelf motion control chips or Integrated Circuits (ICs) are highly flexible and can in fact be used to control many other types of system, as Gerard Bush of INMOCO illustrates. Motion control systems rely on changing the speed of one or more motors in order to achieve a given outcome. For instance, glue laying and profile following typically use two motor driven linear actuators set perpendicular to one another. If you activate just one motor at a constant speed, the result is a straight line movement in one direction.
