Get your motor runnin’
If it’s information about ac/dc drives, motion control, or power transmission that is of interest to you, then stop right here, go to your nearest web browser, and key in www.motorcontrol.com (because I would need another column to tell you about everything you can access and do at this web site). Motorcontrol.com is an online community for users, specifiers, and suppliers of motors and controls. Here’s just a few of the site’s features: locate local motor and control dealers or national manufacturers; check out the technical tips section for information on selecting, applying, and troubleshooting motors and controls; register to receive a free newsletter; and link to relevant articles, application notes, or web sites. MotorControl.com provides many interactive features, including trivia contests, opinion polls, and the ability to send in news, sign up for leads, and swap links.
