AC motors are common equipment pieces that are capable of transforming electric energy into mechanical energy. With the various types of AC motors available, such apparatuses may benefit applications such as appliances, compressor drives and systems, conveyor systems, hydraulic pumps, HVAC equipment, transportation equipment, computers, and much more. Across all variations, AC motors conduct operations through the use of their stator and rotor, those of which are two electrical components that enable the conversion of electrical energy.

An SMD (surface mount device) is any electronic component made to use with surface mount technology (SMT). SMT was developed to meet the rising demand for PCB (printed circuit board) manufacturers to utilize smaller, faster, more efficient, and cheaper components. SMDs are smaller than through-hole resistors and, rather than have wire leads that go through PCB, feature terminations that are soldered to pads on the surface of the board. This eliminates the need for holes in the board, thereby allowing both sides to be used more thoroughly.

Aircraft rigging refers to the proper installation of airframe parts such as wings, ailerons, tail surfaces, and other components designed to do a specific aerodynamic job and contribute to the overall performance, stability, and safety of an aircraft. Proper rigging is important because it ensures the aircraft’s intended standards relating to performance, stability, and safety are met. An improperly rigged aircraft will see dramatic changes in flight characteristics in addition to impairing the safe control and operation as it was intended by the manufacturer.

A buzzer is a device that converts audio signals into sound signals. They are usually powered by DC voltage and are found in products such as alarms, computers, printers, and other electronics. Buzzers are mainly divided into two categories: piezoelectric and electromagnetic, represented in a circuit by H or HA respectively. Depending on different designs and uses, buzzers can emit a broad range of sounds including music, sirens, alarms, or electric bells. In this blog, we will take a look at buzzers and discuss their functions and characteristics.
