Accurate and fast feedback can help manage the abrupt increase in current flow that occurs when a machine tool starts working on a part, for example. For electrical motors with variable speed drives, fine current control in varying operating temperatures improves speed and torque control and can also provide energy savings of up to 30% or more. </div> <p><a href="http://powerelectronics.com/power-electronics-systems/hall-effect-technology-reaches-new-level" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://powerelectronics.com/power-electronics-systems/hall-effect-technology-reaches-new-level#comments White Papers Passive Components Power Electronics Systems Power Management Tue, 27 Sep 2016 15:03:00 +0000 60241 at http://powerelectronics.com Webinar: Semiconductors http://powerelectronics.com/webcasts/webinar-semiconductors <div class="node-body article-body"><div></div>Written and Produced by PowerElectronics.com's Sam Davis.
