This configuration of the NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) has been defined specifically for teaching controls topics throughout mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering curricula.
The Quanser Engineering Trainers for NI ELVIS (QNET) DC Motor Control Trainer is designed to illustrate the fundamentals of DC motor control by configuring motor position and speed, parameter estimation, and control of a haptic knob.
Using QNET hardware-in-the-loop implementations, engineering students can complement their laboratory work with hands-on, practical experience in the important aspects of engineering practice, which spurs student interest and motivation.
In this configuration of NI ELVIS, educators receive:
NI ELVIS II workstation (1.25 MS/s oscilloscope)
NI ELVISmx driver software
QNET plant, software, and courseware
USB cable and connection
Educators can also upgrade to the NI ELVIS II+ system, which includes a 100 MS/s oscilloscope for further measurement capabilities.
