Servo Drive Products

The Basics of Servo Drive Products Explained

Automation is an vital part of the modern business world of today. It is the foundation of better productivity and maximized efficiency. So in order to stay in touch with the ever-evolving industry it is essential for each company to implement advanced methods and machines that will facilitate manufacturing and production. One of the most important of these are servo drive products that provide smooth operation of devices and come with a lot of other advantages as well.

Intro Into Power Supplies

intro into power supplies

Any electrical device, including a computer, needs power in order to operate properly and the device responsible for supplying that power is, creatively enough, called the power supply. What the power supply actually does is converting the alternating voltage (AC), supplied by the power system, into continuous voltage (DC). In other words, the power supply converts conventional 110V or 220V alternating voltage into continuous voltage required by the PC electrical components which are +3.3V, +5V, +12V and -12V. AC voltage may vary throughout the world, but in order to simplify the matter, we will use 110V to include 110V, 115V and 127V, whereas, for voltages of 220V, 230V and 240V, we will use the 220V label. Australia’s power grid, for example, uses 230V, while Japan is the only country in the world outside this range and its residential voltage is 100V.
You can find two basic designs of power supplies Australia wide: linear and switching-mode.

Different Types Of Machining

Machining is a manufacturing term used to describe any controlled material-removal process used to cut a piece of raw material into a desired final shape and size. Simply said, machining is the process of removing material from a workpiece using a power-driven machine to shape it into the desired design.

In a manufacturing process, most metal components and parts require some form of machining. Other kinds of material, such as rubbers, plastics, and paper goods, can also be fabricated through machining processes.

Electromagnetic Brakes Design

Electromagnetic Brakes Design: what it is and how it works

Explained in the easiest way possible, an electromechanical brake uses electromagnetic force for retarding or stopping any object performing a kinetic or mechanical motion. Some people confuse electromagnetic brakes with eddy current brakes, since both of them rely on electromagnetic force. The difference is that electromagnetic brakes depend largely on friction, and eddy current brakes use magnetic force directly. Also, many people seem to think that electromagnetic and electromechanical brake are different things, but actually they aren’t, just that the term ‘electromechanical’ is not in use anymore.

Types of Electrical Enclosures

There are various types of electrical enclosures you can use to house your installations and cables. According to surrounding environment, room design, presence of moisture, exposure to sun and other weather changes, you can choose from a wide palette of materials used for making electrical enclosures. Many electrical enclosures Australia retailers offer various choices among which these are the most popular:

Steel or metal enclosures

These are the most commonly used and asked for in most electrical enclosures Australia stores. Their main purpose is to house electrical or electronic Continue reading
