  • IP65 Rain Test - 1 Year and Counting


    As part of our commitment to quality and durability in our products, we often use life testing as a means of determining how our products will survive when subjected to extended periods of stress or adverse conditions. In the case of motors intended for use in the splash zone, we wanted to do more than just subject them to the 15 minutes or so of high pressure spray required to achieve the IP65 rating. We wanted to see how our motors would fair when subjected to an extended period of water being splashed on them.

  • MCMA Webinar - Applying Industrial Ethernet to Integrated Motors


    As an integral part of the Industrial Internet of Things and an increasingly prevalent technology in factory automation, Industrial Ethernet continues to outgrow fieldbus as the dominant communications platform of the factory floor.

  • Live Webinar - Step Motors and Encoders


    Some of the reasons why step motors are widely used in automation are because they are low cost and easy to use. At the root of these and other benefits lies the open loop system architecture that’s been employed to control step motors for years. Aside from these benefits, experienced users will know that as soon as you demand too much torque from the step motor, it will often stall without warning. Fortunately, this and other traditional limitations of step motor systems can be avoided by simply adding an encoder to the system.
