nanoFaktur is introducing its new line of digital controllers. Customers´ demands have consequently been realized with this. Starting with the encapsulation: All interfaces are placed on the front side, so that wiring- and access space can be saved decisively. There are shackles on both the back and on the bottom, so that the most practical integration can be chosen.
The second-generation EBDs are available for driving and reading strain-sensors and capacitive sensors. The achievable resolution is 5 ppm (rms) of the systems´ nominal ranges. Internal algorithms allow for linearization after characterizing with reference measurement-systems. At nanoFaktur, highest-accuracy probes referring to official standards are being employed as references. Thus systems can be linearized to better than 0.01% of their respective full displacements.
All digital controllers of nanoFaktur have the ID-Chip feature: Characteristic data of the mechanics are stored on a chip in the connector of the mechanics. The controller detects, if a connection has been changed, then reads the data from the chip and the newly connected mechanics can be controlled. The main advantage of this feature is: Mechanics can be exchanged.
The controllers offer several ways of communication. The digital ones are Ethernet, USB, RS232 by default, plus the optional real-time parallel I/O. Also, real-time analog interfaces are integrated as standard: position inputs and sensor-monitor outputs. Programmable digital I/Os allow for generating trigger-signals in order to assign positions to time, which is ideal in combination with the arbitrary wave-generators.
nanoFaktur digital controllers can be tuned easily by the users. System characteristics under specific conditions (load, orientation) can be measured with the included graphical user interface (GUI) software nFControl. P-I-D gain parameters and 2 notch-filters can be set to achieve optimum behavior and fastest response. Besides the GUI, there is a DLL for integration of the communication with nanoFaktur systems into customers´ software or other platforms like LabView™. The controllers can be driven via ScanImage using the analog inputs set to -10.. 10V.
