MELSERVO Vs MPL Servo Motors

Introduction Servo motors, also known as “servos”, are electric motors with integrated positional feedback. The name “servo motor” is related to the term “servomechanism”–a system in which a motor is continually monitored to precisely control its motion. Servo motors are used to accurately control angular or linear position, speed and torque in closed-loop motion control […]

The World of Graphics Cards is Expanding

The end of 2022 has been an exciting year for gamers for quite a few reasons. First and foremost, the graphics card shortage has ended due to the crypto crash and Ethereum changing its Proof-of-Work mining protocol to Proof-of-Stake in what is called The Merge. This required validators to show they have a stake in […]

Is My PLC Battery Dead? How to Test a PLC Battery with a Multimeter

A Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is a ruggedized digital computer used for industrial automation. It’s designed to control the automation of electromechanical industrial processes, such as automated packaging equipment, assembly line machinery, material handling systems, and lighting systems. It accomplishes this by continuously monitoring the state of field input devices and making decisions based on […]

Encoders vs Resolvers

An encoder is a sensing device that provides a feedback signal by converting mechanical motion into a digital electrical signal. Encoders form an integral part of most motion control systems, in which they are used to measure linear/angular position, distance, or speed. Their ability to monitor and control rotational or linear motion is invaluable to […]
