Actuators NI ELVIS Mechatronics Device—The Quanser QNET Mechatronic Actuators Board for NI ELVIS II/II+ is an add-on application board for the NI Engineering Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite II (NI ELVIS II) or NI ELVIS II+. This application board has been developed for education to facilitate hands-on, active learning of the common types of actuators used in mechatronic systems. Students can explore the fundamentals of each actuator as well as learn design considerations, common specifications, interfacing, and operation methods. You can use this device to teach electromagnetics actuation, brushed DC motors, principles of stepper motors, hobby servos, and other key areas. Using the Quanser QNET Mechatronic Actuators Board for NI ELVIS II/II+, you can build foundational knowledge in mechatronics, which is critical to student success throughout the curriculum.
