Electric motors sometimes need a brake resistor. But what does the brake resistor do, and what advantages does it offer? Since a motor’s design is similar to a generator’s, motors always generate voltage. This is counterintuitive, since motors actually use electrical power to generate mechanical (rotor) movement, but it is a fundamental principle of electrical […]
There are control systems whose encoder card is usually compatible with 24V and/or single-ended encoders. igus motors, however, work with 5V and as line drivers. A connection of these two voltages requires another component or a special encoder card.Today we are looking at the connection of igus motors to control systems that work with 24V […]
How? igus® offers free sample programmes for motor controls. This ensures faster commissioning of the motor control in its machine environment. No more tedious, hours-long software programming. All sample programmes are ready-to-use, fully functional and quickly integrated. The sample programmes are compatible with: Industrial manufacturers (e.g. Siemens) Commercially available single-board computer/developer boards (Raspberry Pi) We […]
As a well-known manufacturer of engineering plastics, igus has meanwhile established itself in the minds of the engineering universe. But around these core products a huge product world has developed with over 10,000,XXX different products. One of them is the lead screw motor. As the name suggests, a lead screw motor consists of a lead […]
The bearing replacement for linear axes with belt drive is usually very time-consuming and complex. But it is easier, faster and cost-effective. How to find out here in this blog.
