Lake-dwelling robot fights toxic algae blooms

The so-called Environmental Sample Processor, ESPniagara, sits on the floor of Lake Erie’s western basin. It collects algae from the surrounding water, analyzes microcystin—a small, circular liver-toxic protein—and uploads results for researchers at the end of every test. They’re watching this toxin closely, because elevated levels of it could swiftly poison the water supply for humans, and wildlife in the surrounding area.

Advancements in Motor Efficiency Enables More Sustainable Manufacturing
Climate change is encouraging the acceleration of sustainable and renewable manufacturing processes and practices and one way we can encourage sustainability in manufacturing is with the use of variable speed drive motor control. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Maurizio Gavardoni and Naveen Dhull from Analog Devices about the wide ranging benefits of variable speed motors, the role that current feedback plays in variable speed motor control, and how precision measurement solutions for current feedback can lead to higher motor efficiency, energy saving and enhanced sustainability.
