These systems extend the functionality of basic data acquisition systems by adding programmable outputs; either analog, digital or both allowing these systems to automate tasks such as controlling other equipment or actuators during a production test of a component like a switch or an assembly such as an air conditioner. A key feature of data acquisition and control systems is the ability to measure the input parameters, very quickly calculate a new control value and update the outputs in a consistent, deterministic time.

Advanced real-time systems like ADwin can perform high speed, closed-loop feedback control for the most demanding applications including:

  • Control of metal fatigue test stands
  • Electron beam positioning control
  • Precision servo-hydraulic control
  • Control of piezo-electric actuators
  • Combined laser and magnet control for MOT’s

When designing a data acquisition and control system there are a number of important factors to consider:

  • How many and what type of inputs are required?
  • What outputs needed?
  • How fast do the inputs and outputs need to be updated?
  • How are the outputs controlled: open loop, closed loop, state space, etc.?
  • What software is required to manage the control, view and store the data?
