How to Prevent Step Losses with Stepper Motors

While stepper motors are an excellent solution for many applications, a key concern is step losses. However, in most instances step losses can be prevented or corrected. It is important to remember that a stepper motor does not operate like a DC motor. This white paper from MICROMO engineers provides guidance to determine step losses or non-operation across a variety of applications.

4 Steps In Selecting Fluid Connectors For Medical Device And Equipment Applications

With so many risks and options for connecting tubing in medical applications, it is important to have a simple and repeatable strategy for selecting the best connector solution. The process requires a thorough analysis of the application in order to ensure connectors will be compatible with the physical, chemical and biological environment, and be easy to use and help prevent misconnections—whether the application involves connecting air lines for a blood pressure cuff, connecting reagent supplies to a blood analyzer or making critical connections between a patient and heart-lung machine.

Creating A New Category - Peelable FEP Heat Shrink Technology

Perhaps a controversial reference but relevant nevertheless, Machiavelli once noted that there is nothing more difficult “than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things”1 this certainly speaks to the challenge facing innovators as they create a “new category”, especially in a space that has been static for some time. Junkosha, a Japanese technology company, have a rich history of firsts, which have leveraged their core competencies in fluoropolymers and demanding wire and cable applications. This white paper outlines the experiences of one such first – Junflon Peelable FEP Heat Shrink.

The Dusk of Fire-Wire, The Dawn of USB 3.0: Advancements and critical aspects of camera interfaces for next generation vision systems

Before 2011, many system designs were built on the most popular interface at the time: FireWire. This technology is slowly becoming obsolete and is commonly being replaced by USB 3.0, the new predominant interface for industrial and scientific cameras. In this paper we will outline why people are making the upgrade from FireWire to the USB 3.0 interface, and why USB 3.0 is here to stay.
