How to Calculate the RPM of a Motor

Working Principle of Electric Motors  An electric motor is a device that transforms electrical energy into mechanical energy. Electric motors are used in a variety of industrial applications, to provide mechanical energy to run power tools, fans, electric vehicles, etc. These motors operate on the basis of the electromagnetism principle, which states that: if a current-carrying conductor is placed in a magnetic field, it experiences a mechanical force caused by the attractive and repulsive forces created by…

Everything You Need to Know About PLC Batteries

Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) are rugged and lightweight computers used to automate industrial processes such as wastewater treatment plants, ore processing plants, and manufacturing plants assembly lines. They are designed to perform logical decisions for different electro-mechanical control applications and to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments like in extreme low or high temperatures, and dusty conditions. Also, PLCs are capable of automating an entire production line or a specific machine function, or a given…

Relay Output vs Solid State Output Modules

In designing industrial automation systems, half of the challenge is how you wish to control a system, and the other half is in how to connect the system’s components together.  Specifying input, output, and communication methods can be a huge undertaking, as all other devices up- and downstream have to be both compatible with, and reliable when using, your selected technologies.  To aid in your selection of PLC connectivity modules, we’ll start with this article discussing the differences between discrete output types – namely, the design, functionality, and…

Allen-Bradley Flex 5000 Selection Guide

Generally, a FLEX I/O line is a Distributed Input/Output System that connects to several Networks including EtherNet/IP, ControlNet, and DeviceNet. Being a bus coupler, the Flex I/O allows you to add different modules consisting of bases and I/O cards along the DIN rail. In particular, Flex I/O systems are flexible and modular providing all the functions of vast, rack-based I/O at a low cost and without the space requirements. They are available via a variety…

Types of Encoders within the MPL and 1326 Servo Motor Series

Have you ever wondered how forming and metal cutting machines provide precise motion for lathes, bending for metal fabrication and milling or how a robotic vehicle mainly used in military applications with bomb detection systems is controlled, or how antenna positioning systems control the precision in elevation and azimuth? Well, a servo motor is at the heart of these precise position and motion control systems. A servo motor is a compact electrical component, which rotates…
