(V/f Motor Control Method)
The techniques for braking of high inertial loads to a stop traditionally involved either Dynamic Braking or DC Injection Braking technology.
This article examines a new load-braking alternative called High-Slip Braking (HSB). We identify the different aspects of HSB, look at what it does, how it works, and how it is different from other braking methods. We also provide examples of "real world" successes, and discuss the new technology's cost effectiveness.
Finding and Eliminating the Weak Link
Improving Operational Efficiency with Distributed Motion Networks.
This paper describes a machine control topology that can improve the speed of unexpected repairs by automatically configuring replacement servo amplifiers. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and end users can both realize resource optimization benefits from the reduced commissioning times achievable with a digital, distributed motion network.

This white paper outlines the differences between Type E and Type F starters recently introduced by the revisions on UL508.
Cost reduction through electrical CAE
Author: EPLAN Software
The automation industry is now at the foothills of another paradigm shift, the CAE revolution. This White Paper discusses the emerging role of Computer-Aided Engineering for OEM engineers and designers and recommends that to avoid making the revolution difficult, we in the U.S. adopt the paradigm shift and see its value.
- Generate G-code motion programs directly from CAD drawings by importing vector-based drawing files into CADFusion to see the resulting tool path graphically.
- With Integration Assistant, users can integrate IntelliCenter motor control centers (MCCs) into their RSLogix 5000 programming software to reduce programming time
- Mitsubishi Electric Automation customers can use RT Toolbox2 as part of the MELSOFT iQ Works software to create a cost-effective integrated suite that covers even more of their software needs
- Online electric actuator sizing program simplifies design and specification of electric motion control projects.
