G5-5 harmonic recommendations demand attention

G5-5 harmonic recommendations demand attention
The new G5-5 recommendations on harmonic disturbance are a significant change to the previous G5-4. System integrators and end users must take note to ensure compliance and variable speed drive manufacturers will also need to assist by making their product data available. Wayne Turtill, Product Manager for Variable Speed Drives, Servos and Low Voltage Switchgear at Mitsubishi Electric UK, explains the impact of G5-5.

Keeping the noise down

Keeping the noise down
The world’s loudest sound was the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano in 1883, which was clearly heard 3,000 miles away - that’s more than the width of the United States. While micromotors won’t reach this extreme volume, their noise can still be problematic, such as in loud medical equipment that triggers patient anxiety. Here, Dave Walsha, Commercial Development Officer at EMS, explores some applications where motors must keep the noise down.

Fundamentals of servo motors in process control

Fundamentals of servo motors in process control
Long takes, when done properly, are masterstrokes of cinema. However, just a single mistake can mean scrapping reams of footage. To ensure filming equipment can keep up with the director’s cinematic vision, cameras must perform precise and perfectly repeatable actions. Here, Dave Walsha, Commercial Development Officer at EMS, explains how servo motors help achieve process precision both on and off camera.

Reaching new heights

Reaching new heights
An automated warehouse is a breathtaking sight, as reams of pallets are automatically scanned and retrieved for delivery. But not all automation systems are made to endure extreme environments. Here’s how Technidrive and WEG partnered to help Moffett, an automated storage firm, design a vertical lift for extreme temperatures.

The potential of AI in motors and drives

The potential of AI in motors and drives
Computing Machinery and Intelligence, the seminal paper by Alun Turing, posed the question, “Can machines think?” Turing's research proved that a digital computer could simulate the behaviour of any other digital machine, given enough memory and time. Here, Marek Lukaszczyk, European and Middle East Marketing Manager at WEG, explains how this has led to an effective digital manufacturing environment in which the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in electric motor and drive applications could soon be unleashed.
