Compact Package combines stepper motor, controller, driver.

SMC-Pollux integrates 2-phase stepper motor with micro-stepping driver and DSP-based motion controller. Latter utilizes multi-drop serial interface that allows daisy chaining of up to 16 axes. Smooth motion results from micro-stepping rate of up to 5,000 microsteps per full-step, which also minimizes mechanical resonances. Offered with various stepper motors of various torque levels, SMC-Pollux...

Distillation 101: A Guide to Distillation and Separation Technologies

Distillation is a separation unit operation that involves multiple countercurrent-stage steps, separating two or more volatile components. This results in the contact of liquid and vapor most generally in counterflow. Distillation 101: A Guide to Distillation and Separation Technologies provides an in-depth look at everything you need to know about distillation, including: Design procedures Equipment components Applications
