Technology / Computers / Synchronous: Synchronous can refer to: (1) A communications method that transmits a group of characters as a block of data rather than as individual characters. (2) A reference to the fact that two different data streams are tied, or synchronized, to a single reference clock. (3) Data transmitted in a time-division multiplexer.
Technology / Motors / Reluctance Synchronous Motor: A synchronous motor with a special rotor design which directly lines the rotor up with the rotating magnetic field of the stator, allowing for no slip under load. The reluctance motors have lower effi MORE
Technology / Motors / Synchronous Speed: The speed of the rotating magnetic field set up by the stator winding of an induction motor. In a synchronous motor the rotor locks into step with the rotating magnetic field, and the motor is said to MORE
