Mouser Electronics recently launched a new Motor Control Applications site for motor control engineers and anyone interested in control applications. The site features motor control resources and offers components available from Mouser Electronics for building motor control systems.
The site’s Applications section segments motor control into five main subsections: Permanent Magnet Synchronous motors, Brushless DC motors, Stepper motors,AC Induction motors, and Low Voltage DC motors. These subsections describe each motor’s use and operation. You can view functional block diagrams explanations of each block, as well as a parts list of products available for same-day shipping.
The Articles section covers topics such as Introduction to Rotary Resolvers & Encoders and Passive Components for Advanced Motor Control.
The Featured Products section focuses on key products available from Mouser.com that speed and enhance the construction of motor control systems. Products include the Vishay Widebody VOW3120 2.5A IGBT and MOSFET Driver, Molex Sealed Industrial USB Solutions, and the Fairchild FAN9673 CCM PFC Controller. Additional products for motor control systems include products for EMI suppression, circuit protection, passives, sensors, and motor control development kits.
The Resources section features videos, application notes, and white papers that cover topics such as device selection and system considerations when designing motor control systems. Systems discussed include selecting motor drivers, implementing control feedback loops, Power Factor Correction (PFC) techniques, and designing for thermal management.
