Control technology entails the regulation of dynamic systems of which the time-dependent state is defined by the actual state and the influences on the system, in combination with the system properties.
Measurement technology in a measurement system is defined by the measurements to the system in order to control it. But of course this can be viewed in a broader perspective, e.g. the measurement of a material’s characteristics or of a signal.
Measurement and Control Technology and electronics can hardly be seen separately. In nearly every electronical system measurements will be taken and the system needs to be stable and predictable, on its own as well as in relation to its environment. Measurement and control technology is indispensable to achieve this.
A control scheme can be established by (electronic) hardware but also by software, according to its purpose. Using hardware one usually obtains the shortest response time, while using software a higher complexity can be achieved, although it must be said that for the majority of applications typical response time of a hardware system is sufficient.
Whether we are talking about control and regulation of the temperature in a room, the current going through an electric motor or the speed and spacial position of the seat of a stair lift, control and measurement technology can be found everywhere and has multiple applications.
Measurement and control of a system starts, independent of whether it is an electrical or a mechanical system, with understanding its physical properties and the behaviour this involves. In accordance with these a passing control strategy must be chosen. Knowledge and experience required for these matters is amply present at HedoN. Whether you would like us to perform Fourier- Laplace- Z- or Fast-Fourier transformations, or to implement a tailor-made control scheme in hard- or software, this is what we do on a daily basis.
Ever since its founding date in 1979, Hedon uses measurement and control technology in the development of its products. Some recent examples can be found by following the links below.
