Fan motor drivers simplify appliance design

ON Semiconductor has announced three new devices for driving 3- phase BLDC motors via 180 degree sinusoidal waveforms. Designed for use in cooling fans of household appliances such as refrigerators, as well as games consoles and computing equipment, the LV8811, LV8813, and LV8814 have voltage ranges of 3.6 V to 16 V, 6 to 16 V, and 3.6 to 16 V respectively. These highly integrated, software-less motor drivers simplify motor control circuit design by eliminating software development time.

Brakes help Europe’s largest stage productions

Brakes help Europe’s largest stage productions
In many modern stage productions, motion on the set is an intrinsic part of the magic. Performers fly through the air, stage elements rise and fall and lighting rigs shift dynamically to suit the action. Since 2013, advanced electric brake systems from Warner Electric, part of the Altra Industrial Motion group, have played a quiet but critical role in a growing number of major theatre and stadium shows; working quite literally behind the scenes.
