This application can be done by using just the following:
1-Common items for all applications:
a) AG-001_FUB. Base structure and Robot.
b) AG-001_CIB. Control Interface Box.
c) AG-001_DAB. Data Acquisition Board.
2- Set for this particular application, including these items:
Optics study sensor consists of diode capable of measuring the light.
Modulated laser diode:
Nominal wavelength=670 nm.
Maximum power output= 1 mW.
2 Lens of crystal. One has x9 magnification and 31 mm of focus distance, and the other has x2 magnification.
Line generator. The line generator is a combination system consisting of a lens to focus or collimate the beam from a laser diode and cylindrical lens, which generated the line. By rotating the front cell assembly, the beam can be focussed or collimated. A locking ring is used to secure the final position.
The teacher can use any element suitable for OPTICS study, so the UNIT IS OPEN and can do MANY OTHER EXPERIMENTS.
3- Computer Control Software:
Computer Control+Data Acquisition+Data Management Software for Optics Study application.
Compatible with actual Windows operating systems. Graphic and intuitive simulation of the process in screen.
Compatible with the industry standards.
Registration and visualization of all process variables in an automatic and simultaneously way.
Flexible and open software, developed with actual windows graphic systems, acting simultaneously on all process parameters.
Management, processing, comparison and storage of data.
Sampling velocity up to 250,000 data per second.
Student calibration system for all sensors involved in the process.
It allows the registration of the alarms state and the graphic representation in real time. Comparative analysis of the obtained data, after the process and modification of the conditions during the process.
Open software, allowing to the teacher to modify texts, instructions. Teacher’s and student’s passwords to facilitate the teacher’s control on the student, and allowing the access at different work levels.
This unit allows that the 30 students of the classroom can visualize simultaneously all results and manipulation of the unit, during the process, by using a projector.
Practices to be done with the Optics Study application:
1.- Programming and applications of a robot arm.
2.- Calibration of the optics sensors.
3.- Reflection principles.
4.- Determination of the index of the refraction (n).
5.- Refraction principles.
6.- Determination of the reflection index for the methacrylate.
7.- Study of the dispersion.
8.- Calculation of the focal distance of a spherical mirror.
9.- Determination of the focal length in a magnifier (I).
10.- Determination of the focal length in a magnifier (II).
11.- Determination of the focal length for two lens.
12.- Determination of the aberration of a len.
IMPORTANT: The teacher can use his own elements, so these practical possibilities are NEARLY UNLIMITED.
