Brushless DC Motor Drive

The TA2230 constant velocity drive from Trust Automation (San Diego, CA) is designed to run a brushless motor at a constant velocity using the motor’s ll sensors for the velocity feedback. Using an RS232 interface, the drive can be programmed at start-up to ramp up at a preset rate and maintain a constant velocity, regardless of load changes.

Torque Sensor

A rotating torque sensor from Sensor Development (Lake Orion, MI) feature a bearing system that allows the structure to be exposed to very high radial loads without damage. Most standard torque sensors require their housings to float to minimize any extraneous loading other than the torque applied to the shaft.

Radio Touch Probe

The RMP600 touch probe from Renishaw (Hoffman Estates, IL) combines high-accuracy strain-gage sensing and frequency-hopping spread-spectrum (FHSS) radio transmission. The probe allows high part checking precision on five-axis machining, contours, deep cavities, and undercuts, where obstacles or part features can block transmission by optical line-of-sight probes.
