Quanser Mechatronics Sensors Board for NI ELVIS III

NI ELVIS Mechatronics Device

Sensors Analysis NI ELVIS Mechatronics Device—The Quanser Mechatronics Sensors Board for NI ELVIS III is an add-on application board for the NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite III (NI ELVIS III). This device features eleven different sensors: pressure transducer, strain gage, thermistor, sonar and infrared range sensors, optical position sensor, mechanical limit switch, rotary potentiometer and encoder, a capacitive touch sensor, and IMU. Using the Quanser Mechatronics Sensors Board for NI ELVIS III, students learn fundamentals of interfacing with these sensors, including how to collect, calibrate and condition sensor data. Students are also introduced to measurement and instrumentation fundamentals such as signal conditioning and calibration.
