Building on its experience in the electric assist bicycle market, the Panasonic Group has been cultivating technological expertise in drive motors and control circuits. In September 2010, the Panasonic Group, in collaboration with Suzuki, succeeded in developing a high performance in-wheel motor with regenerative braking capabilities and a high efficiency control circuit for Suzuki's prototype electric scooters, which have undergone on-road testing.
Analysis of the waveforms shown in Figure 2 provides two kinds of information: numbers that directly relate to component values in the circuit and results that confirm correct control circuit behavior.
In addition, neither the motor nor the control circuit should emit electrical noise that might disturb other electronic components, and they must be hardened so that they experience no deterioration if they are subjected to electrical noise spikes from other sources.

This AD would require an inspection of the one phase remote control circuit breakers (RCCB) in the main avionics compartment and centre accessory compartment to determine their part numbers and serial numbers, and the replacement of certain RCCBs if necessary.
The INTEGRA motor integrated control circuit simplifies installation and minimizes any EMI problems.
Other features include an ICE-12C torch with safety guard; constant pilot arc control, which minimizes tip burnout by eliminating the need to restart the arc with each new cut; in-rush current control circuit, which protects the unit in case of incorrect voltage hook-up or voltage overload; and diagnostic lights for quick troubleshooting.
