Applications

regenMotors become generators when forced to turn while no or reduced power is applied. This phenomenon brings interesting benefits in terms of energy efficiency but it also introduces challenges in system design. Understanding the physics and implications of regeneration is critical in many applications.

force feedbackDrive-by-wire or teleoperated systems feel very unnatural to use because they lack the natural feedback the operator receives when turning a steering, presuring an object in his or her hands, or pressing on a pedal. This lack of feedback is uncomfortable in many situations, to outright dangerous in others. Yet force feedback is reasonably simple to implement.

truth about amps rating in motor controllersMax Amps is one of the most important criteria when selecting a motor controller. Different vendors use different approaches when rating their products making comparison difficult. Here is how you can sort things out.

electric scooter built with roboteq dc motor controllerOne of the most interesting features of electric motors when used in drive train application is that they can also behave as generators, and thus recharge the vehicle's battery while braking. Roboteq's motor controllers can easily be programmed to take advantage of this characteristic in a controlled manner.
