Real-Time Distributed Control

Real-Time / ETB

Control motors and solenoids with a real-time PID loop running at 1 millisecond. We have proven applications for Throttle Body Control, High speed solenoid control, and various photographic applications. All provide minimal latency, robustness, excellent scalability, portability and cost savings.

Real-Time Test System for motors and solenoids

Our system utilizes a Motorola 5282 ColdFire processor board, sitting atop a custom load board and custom H-Bridge to form a test pod. Each device under test (DUT) is constantly monitored for CAN, analog and digital compliance Each pod then communicates via CAN or TCP/IP to the host PC for data storage and Graphical User Interface.

ETBC Front
