2x SRV02 + 2DBB = 2DOF Ball Balancer Experiment
Description The 2DOF Ball Balancer (2DBB) system allows users to explore various control techniques to stabilize the position of a ball on a plate. The center of the plate is supported by a main gimble joint that allows the plate to move in two-degrees-offreedom (2 DOF). The overhead digital camera captures

images of the plate and is used with the supplied Quanser image processing blocks to obtain the x and y positions of the ball. Images are transferred quickly to the PC via a FireWire connection. The plate is also connected through gimbals to the load gear of two SRV02 units in order to control the angular position of the plate about the x and y axes. With the controller provided, the ball can be made to track various trajectories, e.g. circle, or even stabilize the ball when it is thrown onto the plate.

Key Features • Fully compatible with MATLAB/Simulink & LabVIEW • Chassis is precision crafted and constructed of durable ABS plastic. • High-resolution encoders for accurate sensing and positioning of table plate in 2D plane • High resolution, high quality, fast frame rate CCD digital camera with FireWire connection to allow quick real-time sensing of object position in 2D plane • Quanser image processing software and library for use in The Mathworks Simulink ® • User manual details the hardware specifications of the device along with setup information. • Laboratory manual features modeling, sensor calibration, and control design exercises. • System is open architecture, allowing users to design their own controller.

Range of Quanser SRV02 Challenges

The SRV02 series serve as the base of Quanser’s Rotary Control Challenges. Quanser’s modular design approach allows you to readily interchange additional modules, transforming the SRV02 into a multitude of different configurations.
SISO Configurations (Single Input, Single Output) SRV02: Position Control SRV02-T: Position Control BB01: Ball & Beam ROTFLEX: Rotary Flexible Joint FLEXGAGE: Rotary Flexible Link ROTPEN: Rotary Gantry ROTPEN: Rotary Inverted Pendulum ROTPEN-SE: Rotary Self-Erecting Inverted Pendulum DBPEN: Double Inverted Pendulum MIMO Configurations (Multiple Input, Multiple Output) 2D ROBOT: 2 SRV02 Modules Coupled together to control 2 axis. 2D GANTRY: Use the 2D ROBOT to Control the position of the gantry in 2 planes. 2D PENDULUM: Control the Inverted Pendulum with 2 degrees of freedom. 2D Ball Balancer: Control the position of the ball on a plate moving with 2 DOF
Some configurations require specific SRV02 model, please confirm at time of order.

With Quanser the possibilities are infinite
