Piezo Buzzers and Magnetic Buzzers both have their own unique characteristics and serve as common solutions for a variety of audio applications. Choosing the correct buzzer type relies on your application's requirements.
An in depth explanation of IP Ratings are and how they play an important role in the design of many electronic components and devices.
Stepper motors and Servo Motors both have distinct advantages and serve as common solutions for motion control projects. Determining the best motor relies on your desired specifications and your application's requirements.
A servo motor is a rotational or translational motor to which power is supplied by a servo amplifier and serves to apply torque or force to a mechanical system, such as an actuator or brake. Servo motors allow for precise control in terms of angular position, acceleration and velocity.
Learn about how DC Motors and Gear Motors function and how to properly select the right motor or gear motor for your application.
An Impedance Transformer is a special type of Transformer used to match impedance in Audio applications, RF antenna’s and practically anywhere the load impedance needs to be matched to the source.
A stepper motor is a brushless DC electric motor that moves in precise angles, called steps, by converting a series of electrical pulses into rotational motion. Stepper motors fill a unique niche in the motor control world.
Potentiometer taper is the relation between the position of the potentiometer and the resistance ratio. ISL Products can offer a wide variety of potentiometer tapers, but we specialize in audio tapers.
