Where the Master can freely move with any motion profile under control of any remote speed reference, the synchronizer will control one or several Slaves to exactly follow the Master motion in terms of position and speed. The control is based on incremental position feedback by means of encoders on both sides. Many applications just use a measuring wheel with encoder instead of a Master drive. It is possible to preset every speed or gear ratio by means of adjustable impulse scaling factors. All units can accept marker pulses from the encoders and from remote proximity switches or photocells, to automatically produce the correct position with pitch or cycle related applications. mks synchro controllers can operate with any kind of speed variable drives (AC- inverter, DC, Servo or hydraulic type) that follow to a +/-10V speed reference signal. The extremely fast position control loop provides excellent performance even with highly dynamic applicationsmore infohe Zero-Max CD Coupling is a unique hybrid coupling combining the best features found in both steel disk and elastomeric couplings.

It may involve chemical tests, physical tests or performance tests. In systems engineering it may involve black box testing performed on a system (for example: a piece of software, lots of manufactured mechanical parts, or batches of chemical products) prior to its delivery. The objective is to provide confidence that the delivered system meets the business requirements of the end user. The acceptance phase may also act as the final quality gateway, where any quality defects not previously detected may be uncovered. Software developers often distinguish acceptance testing by the system provider from acceptance testing by the customer (the user or client) prior to accepting transfer of ownership. In the case of software, acceptance testing performed by the customer is known as site acceptance testing (SAT). At HMK, our qualified team of engineers has many years experience in FAT & SAT solutions. Whatever the application or system we can offer unbiased advice and assurances.
