Quanser Control Training Systems Added to Adept Scientific Product Range

The acclaimed modular range of control design systems for education and research is now supplied and supported by Adept in the UK and Ireland

Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts.) is delighted to announce that it has been chosen by Quanser (Markham, Ontario), the world leader in real-time control design systems for education and research, as UK distributor of its acclaimed range of modular control training equipment.

Quanser control training equipment delivers an end-to-end solution for training students in control theory and practice, in universities and other educational establishments and in research or industrial environments with rigorous development and testing deadlines. Its products can be found in more than 1,000 institutions worldwide. Its activities are growing exponentially, and in response to this, the company is in the process of appointing what they consider to be “exceptional distributors” in various territories around the world.

The Quanser range incorporates a very broad choice of hardware and software modules for linear and rotary motion, mechatronic and speciality applications, so students have everything they need to design, implement and test control systems. They learn by tackling real-world engineering problems using real, high-quality kit, and hone their practical skills with a thorough understanding of control theory principles.

Uniquely, Quansar systems are modular, so users can build on the base components to extend the number of experiments available as and when they require them. This reduces the overall cost per experiment and makes the Quanser system very affordable.

This modularity also makes the system highly flexible. You can mix and match a limited range of components to perform many different experiments of varying complexity, and by adding and removing various modules you extend the functionality and create a greater variety of experiments and challenges for students to explore.

Every linear and rotary motion system is supplied with a state feedback controller; and control systems are supplied with complete mathematical modelling as well as detailed system parameters to help streamline the selected implementation.

As well as control hardware, Quanser has developed a range of software that works seamlessly with their systems; and a set of curriculum guides that lead the student through a series of experiments designed to maximise their understanding. Hardware, software and both student and instructor guides are integral parts of the Quanser package.

The Quanser range of control training systems is available now from Adept Scientific in the UK and Ireland; more details are at http://quanser.adeptscience.co.uk.

With offices in the UK, USA, Germany and throughout the Nordic region, Adept Scientific is one of the world’s leading suppliers of software and hardware products for research, scientific, engineering and technical applications on desktop computers.
