All factory automation involves some sort of moving machinery, and the most common source of that motion is an electric motor. Whether you need an AC or DC motor – or if your application requires speed, position or even torque control – there is a motor and control technique to provide that motion. Simple systems use on/off control (sometimes called “across the line” control), some need an AC or DC drive or a soft starter. More sophisticated systems may even require PID or another feedback loop for extremely tight control. Whatever the application requires – Automation Direct has you covered!
Knowing which technology to use for each application is critical for cost effective and efficient control of your factory processes. Big savings are possible when you find the right equipment at the best price while also saving in other areas like technical support, shipping costs, fast delivery, warranties and more.
