The Internet of Things equips us with smart devices. But what makes them smart? Could the Trojan Room Coffee Pot from 1991 already be considered a smart device?
An internet connection isn't an indicator of smartness. Smart people are able to perceive and interact with their environment. The same applies to smart devices. They are equipped with sensors, actuators, and smart algorithms to interact and communicate properly.
As motor control is mainly about actuators, Trinamic products take advantage of the dramatic improvements in sensor technologies. Our motor control devices embed sensors to measure the current load and other key actuator parameters.
