  • Digital Current Loop Significantly Quiets Step Motor Noise By

    Conventional step “current chopper” drives result in a large amount of step motor noise, needless motor heating, and consume more current. A digital current loop will result in significantly quieter and lower temperature motor operation which is beneficial in many applications. This article... Read more
  • Keep Your Step Motor Position with A Closed Loop Motion Control System By

    Step motors are a common solution for controlling the position of moving components, but in some cases can be inadequate since the motor position is not necessarily known. Even though step motors are inexpensive when compared to brushless motors, in many critical applications, care has to be... Read more
  • Improving Liquid Handling Robot Throughput by means of Direct Path Planning and Obstacle Avoidance By

    In Liquid Handling Robots that are properly balanced, the gantry robot utilization reaches close to 100%, meaning the robot is almost always moving. In such a situation, improving the move times of the robot can lead to significant throughput enhancements. In systems were (one of) the process... Read more
