AC/DC motor is a popular expression for the drive motor of an electric power tool. This type of motor can be powered by both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC).
Removal of mechanical or electrical deviations by manual or automatic adjusting of the concerned part or device until the desired or specified value is reached.
All-purpose motors are motors whose operational behaviour can adapt to a wide variety of demands. The Der universal motor which you find in many power tools is an example of an all-purpose motor.
Altitude or height is defined based on the context in which it is used (aviation, geometry, geographical survey, sport, and more). As a general definition, altitude is a distance measurement, usually in the vertical or "up" direction, between a reference datum and a point or object.
Trade designations and lists of features represented by a sequence of letters and numbers. This can often be found on the identification plate of various products.
Unit of measurement for electric current named after the French physicist Ampère. The formula symbol is I. For parts and multiples of the unit ampere one uses prefixes such as microampere (µA), milliampere (mA) or kiloampere (kA).
Term used in the context of measured values or control devices to describe continuous measurement or display. A measuring signal, for example, can assume any possible value.
Electronic component to transform a permanent analog signal into a stepped digital signal. A typical application is the conversion of an analog measured value into a digital signal, for instance, for further processing in a personal computer.
Scale to show the angle position on circular saws.
The anti-splintering device is a (transparent) insert for the jigsaw base plate to prevent splintering when cutting through sensitive or brittle surfaces.
In water technology: a non-return valve integrated into a hose connection. Hoses under pressure can be connected and disconnected without splashing or loss of water.
The armature is the rotating part in a universal motor or a generator. In rotary-current motors and air-powered tools it is called rotor.
