Teledyne's matrices are modular, with standard subassemblies supporting a number of customized matrix assemblies. They use Teledyne relays and switches inside the assembly and main module, a standard programmable microcontroller in all matrices, and a universal power supply. Standard and customized switching configurations range from compact, four-terminal modules to M-inputs-to-N-outputs rack assemblies. Components offer Ī 0.1dB repeatability, power up to 2KW capability, 5M cycles, built-in attenuation/bypass, and 50- and 75-ohm impedance. Standard modules come with LCD displays, manual/direct and/or remote control, and multiple input/output connectors, while the control module offers monitored cycle count, system health-system status, redundancy, LED visual status and upgradeable in-circuit programming.
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.
