Solution

Motion Controller – Customer is using RMP EtherCAT motion controller due to multi-axis synchronization. In addition, RMP has helped the customer stream multi-axis motion trajectories in a real-time deterministic manner.

Controls Hardware – The customer selected a Servo drive to be used with a brushless dc motor along with a low backlash gearhead to ensure smooth motion during the flight simulation.

Software – The customer has developed in-house simulation software and they were able to leverage RSI’s intuitive RapidCode software libraries (programmable in C++ and C#) to reach production quickly.

I/O Hardware – Customer selected modular EtherCAT I/O. By using EtherCAT compatible IO, customer could setup triggers which worked with motion in a deterministic manner. The modular IO hardware allowed customer to easily more IO’s based on flight simulation system.
