More and more appliances are integrating sophisticated user interfaces along with the ability to communicate with their owners or the internet as part of a “smart home.”
BLDC motors use electronic instead of mechanical commutation to control the power distribution to the motor. Latching Hall-effect sensors, mounted in the motor, are used to measure the motor’s position, which is communicated to the electronic controller to spin the motor at the right time and right orientation.
Clean input power for appliances is more important than ever in modern manufacturing facilities. In years past, all loads that were connected to AC supply lines were either resistive loads, such as light bulbs and heaters, or simple inductive loads, such as fixed-speed AC motors.
The large number of certifications gives product developers broad supply chain options for building lighting solutions, energy devices, sensors, controllers, gateways and other IoT objects that will work together using the industry’s most widely deployed common language between IoT devices.
When used correctly, high-tech adhesives can resolve many design issues while also saving money, time and effort. However, there are many potential reasons for a possible failure when using these materials.
