Precisely align and integrate your data acquisition and motion control

Written by: Aerotech Ltd | Published:

Aerotech's Sensor FusionTM is a 3U data acquisition device integrated with our Automation 3200 (A3200) motion controller to provide precise time alignment of motion and data acquisition functions. Integrating the data acquisition into the motion control platform allows for a cost-effective data acquisition solution with quick and easy configuration and setup for shorter development time.

Sensor Fusion accepts up to four different SF cards. Data collection is synchronized 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, analog 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 analog 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.

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

Position Synchronized Output (PSO) – Extended Functionality
Sensor Fusion has all of the PSO functionality from our 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 analog outputs for precision control of multiple devices from one positioning system.
