Tackling pollution control in diesel generating sets

Tackling pollution control in diesel generating sets
The introduction of Tier 4 and Tier 5 emissions regulations continue to have an impact on manufacturers of diesel engines and the final products in which they are used. Tier 4 has already been implemented for non-emergency generating sets and it seems only a matter of time before they will have to meet Tier 5 requirements. To help manufacturers meet both current and future emissions regulations, Burkert can develop complete dosing packages for selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems.

H-bridge driver IC supporting low-voltage, large current drive

H-bridge driver IC supporting low-voltage, large current drive
An addition to Toshiba Electronics Europe’s (Toshiba) line-up of dual H-bridge driver ICs for DC brushed motors and stepping motors has been launched. The new TC78H653FTG delivers the low voltage (1.8V) and high current (4.0A) essential for motor-based equipment powered by dry-cell batteries such as mobile devices, electronic products for the home and USB drives.

Metal Matrix Composites deliver 40% weight saving for electric motors

Metal Matrix Composites deliver 40% weight saving for electric motors
Engineers seeking to significantly improve the efficiency and performance of electric motors could benefit from using Aluminium Matrix Composites (AMCs), according to research from the Innovate UK ‘Make it Lighter with Less’ R&D competition. The project, led by AMC specialist, Alvant, in collaboration with GE Aviation, YASA Motors and the National Composites Centre, achieved a 40% rotor weight saving on an axial flux electric motor while increasing the rotor’s power-to-inertia ratio potential.

Power-dense servo drive reduces wiring and filtering to save space

Power-dense servo drive reduces wiring and filtering to save space
Kollmorgen has announced the new AKD2G Servo Drive, which is a dual-axis AKD2G, one of the most power-dense industrial servo drives on the market. . It substantially reduces mains wiring, fuses, and filtering to save significant panel space and cost. The AKD2G features expandable I/O (without increasing the size), removable memory, dual-channel STO, and the first drive-resident graphic display in the industry.

Single-axis motor controller designed for bipolar stepper motors

Single-axis motor controller designed for bipolar stepper motors
Following the successful TMCM-1110 StepRocker and TMCM-1111 StepRocker Servo, TRINAMIC Motion Control has announced its new StepRocker boards with StealthChop. Just like the first members of the StepRocker family, the TMCM-1211 and TMCM-1316 are open-source single-axis motor controller/driver modules for 2-phase bipolar stepper motors.

High precision, low profile, compact motorised rotary stage available

High precision, low profile, compact motorised rotary stage available
A high precision, low profile, compact motorised rotary stage, the AY110-100-SC, is now being offered by Optimal Engineering Systems (OES). This precision stage is 45mm high and the foot print is only 121 by 170mm. The stage has a pattern of threaded mounting holes in the rotary table and holes in the base for easy integration into new and existing applications.
