Market Intelligence Report: Motion Control Part 1
February 16, 2010
Control Design surveyed its audience to get a snapshot of which motion controller they're using, the update rates they require and their protocol of choice for moving the information. Results were compared to 2009 findings, and James Ingraham, software development team leader at Sage Automation, builder of robot systems in Beaumont, Texas, spoke with Control Design's executive editor Jim Montague to analyze the survey responses.

Market Intelligence Report: Motion Control Part 2
February 22, 2010
To learn which types of motors engineers, machine builders and system integrators are using and whether they're already integrated with drives, Control Design polled its readers. We also gathered and analyzed answers about synchronization and linear motion applications, weighing the results against how our participants responded in 2009. Control Design's Digital Managing Editor Katherine Bonfante and James Ingraham, software development team leader at Sage Automation, builder of robot systems in Beaumont, Texas, discuss what the results mean.

Market Intelligence Report: Motion Control Part 3
March 22, 2010
Control Design's Managing Editor Mike Bacidore and James Ingraham, software development team leader at Sage Automation, builder of robot systems in Beaumont, Texas, evaluate the results of Control Design's latest survey on motion control. The survey asked its participants about incremental vs. absolute encoder options, motion simulation software and the biggest motion-control challenges faced by respondents. Answers also are compared to data retrieved in the 2009 poll on motion control. Watch this video report to learn about the results of this survey.
