Quanser Linear Servo with Inverted Pendulum Experiment

Controls Research Plant

Linear Servo With Inverted Pendulum Controls Research Plant—The Quanser Linear Servo With Inverted Pendulum consists of a cart powered by a DC motor to which students can attach a free-turning pendulum. The servo has two encoders that can measure the position of the car and the position of the pendulum. Educators can use the Quanser Linear Servo With Inverted Pendulum to perform a variety of experiments, including the classic inverted pendulum experiment, where students must design a controller that balances a vertical rod by moving the cart.
