TEACH FUNDAMENTALS OF DC MOTOR CONTROL

The Quanser QNET 2.0 DC Motor board is a versatile servo system designed to teach and demonstrate the fundamentals of DC motor control in a variety of ways. Designed exclusively for NI ELVIS platform and LabVIEW™ software, the system can be easily configured to control motor position and speed, as well as for modeling experiments.

HOW IT WORKS

The QNET 2.0 DC Motor board consists of a direct-drive motor with a single-ended rotary encoder measuring the angular position of the motor, and an inertia disk on the motor shaft. The inertia disk can be easily attached using a magnetic connector. The motor is driven using a pulsewidth modulated (PWM) power amplifier. Signals to and from the system are available on a header and on standard connectors for control via a data acquisition card. The control variable is the voltage to the drive amplifier of the system and the output is either the inertia disk speed or the angle of the inertia disk. Disturbances can be introduced manually by manipulating the wheel or digitally through LabVIEW™ software.
