Thus, overvoltage can be limited by using a controlled switching unit configured to close contacts near the zero value of the idle current of the AT, which prevents the emergence of harmonic components.
All drive setup is done via dip or rotary switches on the side of the drive, including motor selection, running current, idle current, and step resolution.
Stepper holding torque can be regulated by the amount of current (idle current) put through the motor at rest.
The product can be operated with a 2.7V-3.3V voltage source and its current consumption is 3mA, with an idle current less than 10uA.
Commonly referred to as vampire power, phantom load or idle current, the energy used by charging or simply plugging in cell phones, desktop computers, microwave ovens and your favorite electric toothbrush takes a toll on your pocketbook.
The additional benefit through reduced consumption of idle current is not included.
where [U,.sub.20] is the secondary voltage reduced to the primary, corresponding to the idle running regime, [I.sub.10] is the complex expression of current [i.sub.10] passing through the primary winding in this case, called idle current.
When the first versions of the IC model are available, two states of the circuit are extracted: 1) an idle current with no traffic, and 2) a max traffic current where the die is working at full capacity.
Idle current is 50% of running current and is activated within 0.5 sec after the last pulse.
One example, Saint-Gobain technicians used the FIS system to determine that the cause of poor surface finishes was fluctuations in the plant's incoming idle current. The fluctuations resulted in variations in spindle speed and, hence, variations in chip size during grinding.
Its biasing circuit is optimized for low idle current consumption (below 30 mA).
