Based on Yasakawa Electronic Company, the Mechatronics is defined by this definition: The word mechatronics is composed of MECHA-, from mechanism and the -TRONICS-, from electronics. In other words, technologies and developed products will be incorporating electronics more and more into mechanisms. 1996, Harashima, Fuada, Tomizuka: Mechatronics is the synergistic integration of mechanical engineering with electronics and intelligent computer control 1997, Shetty, Kolk: Mechatronics is a methodology used for the optimal design of electromechanical products. W. Bolton: Mechatronics, not just a marriage of electrical and mechanical systems and is more than just a control system, it is a complete integration of all of them.

Mechatronic Systems Interfacing & Control Systems An overview of the Interface and the Control Systems of a Mechatronic System Interfacing: Control Systems: Input signals Microprocessor Control Output signals PID Control Actuator output PLC Controllers Signal conditioning Microprocessors Sampling rate µprocessor numerical control Filtering Fixed-point mathematics Data acquisition boards (DAQ) Calibrations µprocessor input-output control Polling & Interrupts I/O transmission µcontroller network systems Mechatronic Systems Interfacing This section can be enumerated into the Part 4: Systems & Controls (because of: Signals & Systems can be found), and Part 6: Software & Data Acquisition (because of: Sampling & Rating can be found) Interfacing is connection of the mechatronic system with the environment. We can distinguish system input interface and system output interface. Usually the input interface changing some physical quantities to the electrical one, while the output interface convert the electrical signals to some physical one. Mechatronic Systems Interfacing Signal Classification Signals are broadly classified as either continuous-time (CT) or discrete-time (DT) signals, and each of these may in turn be categorized as deterministic or random (Stochastic) signals. A deterministic signal can always be expressed mathematically, whereas the time of occurrence or value of a random signal cannot be predicted with certainty. A CT signal x(t), has a specified value for every value of time t while a DT signal, x(n), has specified a value only at discrete points, that is, for integer values of n. Closely related to CT and DT signals are analog and digital signals, respectively. Rating, Quantization Sampling Mechatronic Systems Interfacing Input Signals Words TRANSDUCERS/SENSORS are often used synonymously. These are devices that convert energy from one form (physical) to another (electrical) one. The output of a sensor is usually an analogue signal, but some intelligent sensors contains A/D converter on-board of sensor and produce a square wave output in form of digital signals, and what is more, some more intelligent sensors contains TCP/IP interface on-board. Mechatronic Systems Interfacing Input Signals How the signals can distribute some information: The answer is the signal modulation. Some well known signal modulation: frequency modulation, amplitude modulation, PWM. etc. Mechatronic Systems Interfacing Input Signals At the input signals usually some A/D conversion is performed. These devices convert the analogue signals to the digital one. It is several methods for A/D conversion, like successive approximation 10bit motorola converter (SAR). Binary value Decimal value Voltage As an example, let we consider an A/D converter that is converting a voltage level ranging 0 12 V into a single byte of 8 bits. In this example, each binary count increment reflects an increase in analog voltage of 1/256 of the maximum 12 V. There is an unusual twist to this conversion, however. Since a zero value represents 0 [V], and a 128 value represents half of the maximum value, 6[V] in this example, the maximum decimal value of 255 represents 255/256 of the maximum voltage value, or [V]. Mechatronic Systems Interfacing Output Signals The output command from the microcontroller is a binary value in bit, byte (8 bits), or word (16 bits) form. This digital signal is converted to analog using a digitalto-analog converter, or D/A. Let us examine converting an 8-bit value into a voltage level between 0 and 12 V. The most significant bit in the binary value to be converted (decimal 128) creates an analog value equal to half of the maximum output, or 6 [V]. The next digit produces an additional one fourth, or 3 [V], the next an additional one eighth, and so forth. The sum of all these weighted output values represents the appropriate analog voltage. As was mentioned in a previous section, the maximum voltage value in the range is not obtainable, as the largest value generated is 255/256 of 12 [V], or [V]. The smoothness of the signal representation depends on the number of bits accepted by the D/A and the range of the output required. The figure demonstrates a simplified step function using a one-byte binary input and 12-V analog output. Mechatronic Systems Interfacing Actuators The output signals are usually received by some kind of ACTUATORS. Actuators are devices that convert energy from one form (electrical) to another (physical) one. The three common actuators are: switches, solenoids, motors. Switches are simple state devices that control some activity, like turning on and off the furnace in a house. Types of switches include relays and solid-state devices. Solid-state devices include diodes, thyristors, bipolar transistors, field-effect transistors (FETs), and metal-oxide field-effect transistors (MOSFETs). A switch can also be used with a sensor, thus turning on or off the entire sensor, or a particular feature of a sensor. Solenoids are devices containing a movable iron core that is activated by a current flow. The movement of this core can then control some form of hydraulic or pneumatic flow. Applications are many, including braking systems and industrial production of fluids. Motors are the last type of actuator. There are three main types: direct current (DC), alternating current (AC), and stepper motors. DC motors may be controlled by a fixed DC voltage or by pulse width modulation (PWM). In a PWM signal, a voltage is alternately turned on and off while changing (modulating) the width of the on-time signal, or duty cycle. AC motors are generally cheaper than DC motors, but require variable frequency drive to control the rotational speed. Stepper motors move by rotating a certain number of degrees in response to an input pulse. Mechatronic Systems Interfacing Signal Conditioning SAMPLING RATE: The rate at which data samples are taken obviously affects the speed at which the mechatronic system can detect a change in situation. For example, the response of a sensor may be limited in time or range. There is also the time required to convert the signal into a form usable by the microprocessor, the A/D conversion time. For voice digitalization, there is a very well-known sampling rate of 8000 samples per second. This is a result of the Nyquist theorem, which states that the sampling rate, to be accurate, must be at least twice the maximum frequency being measured. The 8000 samples per second rate thus works well for converting human voice over an analog telephone system where the highest frequency is approximately 3400 Hz. Lastly, the clock speed of the microprocessor must also be considered. If the ADC and DAC are on the same board as the microprocessor, they will often share a common clock. The microprocessor clock, however, may be too fast for the ADC and DAC. In this case, a prescaler is used to divide the clock frequency to a level usable by the ADC and DAC. FILTERING: Filtering is the attenuation (lessening) of certain frequencies from a signal. This process can remove noise from a signal and condition the line for better data transmission. Filters can be divided into analog and digital types, the analog filters being further divided into passive and active types. Analog passive filters use resistors, capacitors, and inductors. Analog active filters typically use operational amplifiers with resistors and capacitors. Digital filters may be implemented with software and/or hardware. The software component gives digital filters the feature of being easier to change. Digital filters are explained fully in Chapter 29. Filters may also be differentiated by the type of frequencies they affect. 1. Low-pass filters allow lower set of frequencies to pass through, while high frequencies are attenuated. 2. High-pass filters, the opposite of low-pass, filter a lower frequency band while allowing higher frequencies to pass. 3. Band-pass filters allow a particular range of frequencies to pass; all others are attenuated. 4. Band-stop filters stop a particular range of frequencies while all others are allowed to pass.
