Product Details Supplier Info More products

Aerotech’s Sensor Fusion 3U data acquisition device is integrated with the company’s Automation 3200 (A3200) motion controller and is designed to provide the precise time alignment of motion and data acquisition functions.

According to the company, integrating data acquisition into the motion control platform ensures cost effectiveness and quick and straightforward configuration and setup to shorten development times.

Sensor Fusion accepts up to four SF cards. Data collection is synchronised across all cards so there is no need to align data after collection.

Data collection, configuration and analysis are carried out using the A3200’s set of software tools, so there is no additional software required.

Sensor Fusion is available in three mounting configurations: desktop, rack mount and panel mount.

Key information

  • SF cards are available for digital input and output, analogue input and output, encoder input and PSO output.
  • 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 the I/O Manager utility, which is part of the Motion Composer in the A3200 software suite.
  • Once data is collected, it can be graphed in the Digital Scope or exported to other data manipulation packages.
  • Sensor Fusion has all of the PSO functionality from the company’s standard motion controller product lines.
  • Single, double and triple PSO are available.
