Model 5950B PC/104-compliant servo motion controller features a high-precision, 16-bit monotonic DAC that provides linearity and accuracy. The PMD 1401A DSP-based controller provides trapezoidal and S-curve profiling. High-speed clamping diodes provide extended transient protection against external spiking and noise for the I/O. The servo motion controller is targeted for tough precision industrial applications in robotics, medical instrumentation, and packaging machinery.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
