Are DC motors reversible?

Simply put, DC motors can turn in either direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise) and can be easily controlled by inverting the polarity of the applied voltage. Strictly speaking, the motors can actually create a force in either direction. We make this important distinction because some applications, such as Continue reading

Visualising Voltage, Amplitude, and Frequency Relationships in 3D

We’re often stressing how a vibration motor’s voltage, vibration amplitude, and vibration frequency are interrelated – essentially the voltage controls the motor speed which in turn directly affects the frequency and amplitude. Application Bulletin 029 covers this in full. Other factors obviously help determine the profile Continue reading

AB-030 Released : Extending Vibration Theory – Displacement and Dissipation

Our latest Application Bulletin is aimed at extending our discussion of vibrations beyond the amplitude and frequency. Whilst both of these aspects have been covered in previous ABs, and in video form too, there is a large section in our product datasheets that we have not covered Continue reading
