Theory, Application & Operation of Frameless Motor Technology. Live Webinar.

February 23, 2016  11:00 AM ET

Register to watch the webinar on or after February 23.

For many years there seems to have been an engineering mystique surrounding the integration of frameless motor part sets into high performance machine design. This has kept many machine design engineers from jumping in to embed these power and torque dense motor types into their applications.

This webinar will focus on the integration of frameless motors into practical machine design challenges. We will touch on the background and use of embedded motor components, typical application overview, performance improvement expectations, typical design and installation best practices, drive amplifier and feedback considerations, and machine system thermal concerns.

We will also review some basic tools available to help design engineers optimize frameless motor performance in customer machine applications.

Ethernet or EtherCAT for Motion Control Webinar: Choosing the Right Network for Your Applications

JANUARY 26, 2016  |  11:00 AM ET

With the increasing presence of EtherCAT in the motion control industry, choosing between EtherCAT and Ethernet is becoming an increasingly important question. This presentation will cover the technical differences between both methods and provide advice on how to choose between them based on application requirements.  Strengths and weakness of both Ethernet and EtherCAT will be discussed including development time, ease of use, cost, and complexity.

Additionally, Galil’s DMC-500×0 EtherCAT Master and DMC-40×0 Ethernet controller will be reviewed with regards to the capabilities and advantages they can offer.  This presentation is geared towards system developers looking to understand the differences, costs, and capabilities of both Ethernet and EtherCAT.

New Webinar: ‘How Magnetic Sensing Technologies are Changing How You Use Rotary Encoders’

YouTube 39min Webinar

For year’s controls and systems engineers have had to balance the robustness of magnetic encoders with the performance of optical encoders.  However, this is no longer the case due to recent advances in magnetic sensing technologies.  Breakthroughs in microprocessing and signal filtering have resulted in new magnetic encoders that can rival the performance of optical sensors while being more robust and compact. Learn how to select an encoder for a given application and what the future holds.

New Webinar. Servo Solutions For Mobile Automation Challenges

Live Webinar Tuesday April 21, 2015 11:00am EST, presented by Advanced Motion Controls & Electromate

With automation expanding out of the factory, machine builders are faced with a varying set of new challenges.  Mobile platforms, such as unmanned systems, are expected to operate in extreme environments and carry their own power source; all while being light weight and compact.

To meet the current and future needs of the market, enabling technologies need to be applied and discovered.  At the forefront of the enabling technologies are servo drive controllers.

Servo controllers not only make a robot or mobile platform move, they can also be solutions to the other design requirements.  A servo is an integral component to any mobile solution and can help with power efficiency, communication, agility and dexterity.  This webinar will touch on the challenges presented to robot designers and how servo drives can make them successful.

Webinar Presenter: Shane Beilke, Advanced Motion Controls: Executive Team – Product Strategy

Pre-recorded Webinar. EtherCAT as a Master Machine Control Tool

YouTube 50minute Video by Galil Motion Control

Topics include an overview of the communication scheme, physical layout and applications where EtherCAT is the right solution.

There is an increasing demand in the automation and motion control industries for a localized motion control solution that can coordinate motion between multiple remote components. Previously, field bus protocols such as Modbus or Ethernet/IP have been implemented to address remote I/O connectivity. Although successful in moving data across automation networks, these protocols lacked the real time performance necessary for a distributed motion control system.

The EtherCAT communication protocol provides a high speed, low overhead communication scheme that allows efficient, deterministic communication between motion controller and remote components. Based on CANOpen and streamlined specifically for point to point transmission of real time data, the EtherCAT standard is quickly becoming the preferred choice for centralized control of tightly coupled motion between remote components. This presentation is aimed at designers of automation and motion control systems with a basic understanding of Ethernet/IP and EtherCAT communications. Topics will include an overview of the communication scheme, physical layout and applications where EtherCAT is the right solution.
