Do you run motors in extreme conditions? The Motion Control Association offers a webinar specifically geared to engineers who need motors to run in extreme environments such as down hole drilling, high temperature, submersible, vacuum, and space.

The free webinar, Extreme Environment Operation of DC Servo Motors —
What are the Challenges and What is Required?, is sponsored by Maxon and Electromate. It takes place on January 21st at 11:00 EST.

Topics covered will include: DC motor selection background; brushed and brushless DC motors; heavy duty DC motors for harsh environments; testing of heavy duty motors, including vibration, temperature, in oil; application fields of heavy duty motors. Participants will Learn how to size a motor for a particular application and how key motor data change with ambient temperature and environment in which they run.

The presenters are Dr. Urs Kafader and Dr. Robin Phillips of Maxon Motor AG.
