The growing use of microprocessors in motor-driven equipment has made effective thermal management a key consideration for electrical equipment designers. With this in mind, Intelligent Motor Systems (Marlborough, CT) recently introduced a new high-torque, integrated motor and microstepping driver that incorporates a thermally conductive polycarbonate for effective thermal management. The thermally conductive plastic, which was developed by Cool Polymers, draws heat away from the motor controller and dissipates it into the air.
