Aerotech offers data acquisition integrated with our motion controllers to provide precise time alignment of motion and data acquisition functions. Sensor Fusion combines data from two or more sources to create more complete information, essentially turning disparate pieces of data into usable knowledge. Aerotech’s Sensor Fusion™ is a 3U data acquisition device that accepts up to 4 different SF Cards.
The Whole is Greater than the Sum of Parts
Data collection is synchronized across all of the cards in the Sensor Fusion so you won’t need to align data after collection. Conveniently, no additional software is required because the A3200’s extensive set of software tools is used for the data collection, configuration, and analysis in one easy-to-use software interface.
- Sensor I/O easily aligned with encoder position
- Data recording and playback
- Combine sensor inputs in real time
- 5 MHz collection rates
- Desktop, rack mount and panel-mount options
The Sensor Fusion connects to the A3200 Motion Network via Firewire® and can be run with or without any of the A3200 motion control devices. 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 is available in three different mounting configurations – desktop, rack mount and panel mount. The desktop version is standard and comes with integrated side handles and non-skid feet. The rack-mount version is designed for any standard 3U rack. Both the rack- and panel-mount relocate the power input to the proper side of the machine for the configuration. These flexible configurations allow you to easily move Sensor Fusion from one system to the next or fix permanently in a console or system weldment.
