Motors Part 1: AC/DC & Mechanical Mayhem
Thursday, 11 April 2013 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
In the first of two motor workshops, we'll deal with simple motors that don't require complicated circuits to control them: DC motors and AC motors. We'll start by explaining how motors work, how to select the right kind of motor to do the job, and finally, how to mechanically connect the motor to whatever it is you want to move.
Then we'll get our hands dirty, trying out some different motors and mechanical components like gears, cams and couplings.
BONUS: COMES WITH EXCITING MOTOR FUNPACK!
This workshop costs more than our regular offerings because we give you some awesome and useful stuff to take home with you. Your registration fee includes the cost of:
- A DC Hobby Motor
- A Gearbox kit for added torque
- A selection of pulleys and shafts
- A selection of SPDT microswitches
- Batteries included!
