Introduction to Control Systems

Introduction to Control SystemsIntroduction to Control Systems is typically a core course of the engineering undergraduate curriculum in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, and Chemical Engineering. Quanser plants offer the right mix of features, precision, robustness, and flexibility for a wide range of course variations and budgets. With the range of servomotor-based experiment options – from topboards for NI ELVIS platform to QUBE-Servo and other servomotor experiments – you can select what best supports the fundamental concepts taught in your introductory course, including motor characterization and modeling, velocity control, position control, PID control and more.

Most systems come with a comprehensive ready-to-use courseware that allows you to quickly incorporate the plants into your course.

Introduce the Most Important Concepts in Engineering

Introduce the most important concepts in engineering

The classic DC servomotor is the most essential experimental platform in modern control systems education. Control systems techniques let engineers precisely manage servomotor's speed and position. The QUBE™-Servo plant was designed to introduce students to these topics. With fully integrated components including a precision DC motor, optical encoder, amplifier, and data acquisition, the QUBE-Servo is a highly cost effective tool ideal for undergraduate engineering labs. Visit the QUBE-Servo 2 product page to learn more.

Trainers for NI ELVIS Platform

Trainers for NI ELVIS Platform

Designed exclusively for the National Instruments Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (ELVIS), the Quanser NI Engineering Trainers (QNET) offer and effective tool for teaching control fundamentals in various engineering disciplines and courses. Eight topboards for NI ELVIS platform allow you to demonstrate servomotor and classic pendulum control, introduce students to mechatronic sensors and actuators concepts, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics control, flight control, fundamental physics and dynamics principles, or even venture into the bioengineering and explore principles of electromyography.

Introduction to Control Systems Software and Courseware

Software and Courseware

Beyond outstanding hardware, Quanser solutions include essential software for efficient real-time control on the most popular computing platforms (e.g. LabVIEW™, MATLAB®/Simulink®) and complete, ready to use courseware. The latest focus is on utilizing digital media and standardizing the courseware content for ABET evaluation criteria, allowing professors to focus on teaching rather than lab setup and development of materials.
