Machine builders and their end-user manufacturers can increase machine speeds and reliability with the new AVENTICS TM5 TaskMaster aluminum cylinder from Emerson. The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA)-compatible pneumatic cylinder reduces cost, energy consumption, equipment wear and downtime.

 

 

 

B&R enables a unique new form of intuitive operator guidance. Typical operating functions are now incorporated directly into the glass of B&R touch screen panels. This eliminates the need for hardware switches and leaves no chance for dirt and grime to collect or enter the device. The panels are therefore ideal for environments with the strictest hygienic requirements.

BrakingResistor1When designing a motor control system, it is not always clear if a braking resistor is required and, if it is, how to proceed in selecting a braking resistor. This post is intended to simplify that process so it is clear when and how to select a braking resistor for your application. 

Why are braking resistors necessary?

Braking resistors are introduced into a motor control system in order to prevent hardware damage and/or nuisance faults in a VFD. They are required because in certain operations, the motor controlled by the VFD is acting as a generator and power is flowing back towards the VFD, rather than towards the motor.
