Sensorised bearings add power to control

Sensorised bearings from SKF have been chosen a key part of an industrial drive system developed by Atlas Copco Controls AB for use in commercial electrical forklift trucks. Better electronic control circuitry has led toward the wider use of AC motors at the expense of DC motors. Three-phase induction motors cost less and have fewer moving parts than their direct current counterparts, so they offer maintenance and operating benefits. SKF sensorised bearings as part of this control circuitry have led to the AC SuperDrive which allows optimized torque throughout the speed range, fully regenerative braking coupled with increased performance and efficiency.
