Any article on permanent magnet dc motors is not complete without a review of the basics of the technology. Simply stated, all permanent magnet dc motors operate similarly by converting electrical energy into mechanical energy through the interaction of two magnetic fields.
Mike Lefebvre This month's Q&A examines the changes taking place in the design of today's brush-commutated dc motors. These changes include advancements influencing the assemblies, size, and materials.
These new two- and three-button switches can save space by taking the place of two or three cutouts, replacing them with only one. Any mounting position is allowed, and a mounting adapter comes standard with each operator.
The MSM Series of vandal-proof stainless steel pushbutton power switches cover a voltage range of 5 Vdc to 250 Vac at currents from 0.1 to 10 A. They are rated IP67 for water resistance and IK 07 for shock and impact. They can handle temperatures of -25° to +85°C. Switches extend only 1.
