Brushless motor dosing applications are growing in industrial, commercial, water treatment, laboratory and medical applications. To make it easy for customers to program their own unique dosing applications, Crouzet Motors has developed a new brushless motor dosing application for use with its DCmind motors.
To illustrate what the brushless motor dosing software does, this impromptu 30-second cell phone video was captured at the recent Association for High Technology Distribution Spring Meeting in New Orleans.
In this simple dosing demonstration, when one of the two motors finishes delivering a predefined dose it then signals the second motor to “start a new dose”. In essence, one motor turns during the time the other motor is stalled and the cycle repeats in the demonstration. Of course, the timing can be easily set to whatever values the user wishes for their dosing application.
In the above demonstration two Crouzet DCmind SMi21 brushless DC motors with integral speed, torque and positioning control functions were used.
Brushless Motor Dosing Application Software
One of the unique features of Crouzet’s DCmind software is its simplified programming. For Brushless Motor Dosing one can quickly use the application approach by selecting the Dosing template, then set only those parameters that relate directly to the application. These preset expert programs can be quickly and easily fine-tuned by anyone.
The DCmind software is available in English, French and German language and runs on XP, XP Pro, Vista and Windows 7 computers. Other easy application programs are available for valve actuation, conveyor operation, grippers, lead screws and ball screws and a growing number of new applications. The latest software can be downloaded free of charge here from the Crouzet website. This makes it very easy to “take a test drive” to see just how easy it is to use, yet fully functional.
