Precisely align and integrate your data acquisition and motion control

17 August 2012

Aerotech’s Sensor Fusion is a 3U data acquisition device integrated with its Automation 3200 motion controller to provide precise time alignment of motion and data acquisition functions.

Integrating the data acquisition into the motion control platform provides cost-effective data acquisition with quick and easy configuration and setup for shorter development time.

Sensor Fusion accepts up to four different SF cards. Data collection is synchronised across all cards so there is never a need to align data after collection. Data collection, configuration, and analysis are done using the A3200’s extensive set of software tools, so there is no additional software required.

SF cards are available for digital input and output, analogue input and output, encoder input, and PSO output. Each card can be used in the Sensor Fusion, in any configuration. Both high-power digital output cards and high-resolution analogue output cards are offered.

With no parameters to manage and no difficult setup to go through, switching cards from one system to another is easy. Breakout blocks make accessing each of the inputs and outputs simple, while the use of standard D-connectors on each card allows users to make their cables from common parts.

Setup, data recording, and data playback can be done through .NET, C, LabVIEW, MATLAB, or Aerotech’s own AeroBasic programming language. All inputs and outputs can be managed graphically through Aerotech's I/O Manager utility that is part of Motion Composer in the A3200 software suite.

Sensor Fusion has all of the Position Synchronised Output (PSO) functionality from Aerotech's standard motion controller product lines. Single, double, and triple PSO are available. Coupling data playback with Aerotech’s traditional PSO functionality allows users to control up to 96 digital outputs or 48 analogue outputs for precision control of multiple devices from one positioning system.
