MOONS’ Integrated Motor for Better Package Handling on Conveyor

MOONS’ customized an integrated stepper motor package that offered a single motion control solution for an innovative conveyor system that saved on space, wiring, and cost over conventional motor and drive solutions. Capable of handling packages in a variety of configurations, the innovative conveyor system needed a motor and actuator assembly that could position as rapidly […]

Linear Actuators and Typical Application

Linear Actuators A linear actuator is an actuator that creates motion in a straight line, in contrast to the circular motion of a conventional electric motor. Linear actuators are used in machine tools and industrial machinery, in computer peripherals such as disk drives and printers, in valves and dampers, and in many other places where linear motion is required. Hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders inherently produce linear motion. Many other […]

Screw and Nut about Linear Step Motors

The basic stepper motors are rotated by a magnetic rotor core that interacts with the pulsating stator electromagnetic field generated by the stator. The linear motors combine a screw and a nut to convert the rotary motion into a linear motion. The operation of power screws often seems simple. But making it appear easy is a […]

0-10V and 1­-10V

0-10V and 1-10V are analog protocols used for dimming lighting. Both systems use voltage levels to communicate with the driver. There is an article about 0(1)-10V dimming drivers. In this article, we are discussing the difference between 0-10V and 1-10V. Difference between 0-10V and 1-10V 1-­10V is a current sink system. This means that the dimmer does […]

Wiring Connections for Linear Step Motors

Operation MOONS’ linear stepper motors are available with 2-coil bipolar windings, bipolar windings motors typically have 4 leads. Bipolar motors have a single winding per phase. The current in a winding needs to be reversed in order to reverse a magnetic pole, so the driving circuit must be more complicated, typically with an H-bridge (an H bridge is an electronic […]
