Simpler Interfacing and Faster Connectivity

The Quanser Q1-cRIO is a C series module for the National Instruments CompactRIO controller. The Q1-cRIO module has been designed specifically for controls education and allows to easily interface with over 85 Quanser control experiments.

The Q1-cRIO module has one analog input, one analog output and two configurable, single-ended encoder input interfaces, minimizing the need for additional equipment. All inputs and outputs are accessed simultaneously, using un-buffered single point reads and writes, a requirement for real-time applications. The convenient set of I/O and connectors minimizes setup time and errors allowing students to concentrate on learning the fundamentals of control.

The Q1-cRIO module is driven by the Quanser Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) Toolkit, a software add-on for LabVIEW™, which allows powerful control algorithms to be developed for the NI CompactRIO in a straightforward and efficient way. With the RCP Toolkit installed, up to four Q1-cRIO configurations are supported. This allows you to interface with a wide range of Quanser control experiments used for teaching control topics from introductory to advanced levels.
