Manufacturing and Intelligent Production keep us competitive in world markets regardless of where we are located on the globe. By using high quality and low cost microcontrollers to build intelligent control into the manufacturing process, the quality of manufactured goods can be increased and the cost reduced. The Unison OS is ideally suited to work as controllers in this environment due to the tiny footprint, Linux compatibility, broad set of off the shelf components and rapid development. This approach will minimize the development time, maximize software reuse, minimize development costs and offer the best life cycle costs all with the lowest possible risk.
In industrial control applications, controllers offer the ability to do a few fundamental things:
- ● Sense the environment
Temperature, pressure, time, position, velocity, acceleration, viscosity, conductivity, inductance, capacitance, vibration, noise, current, voltage, energy, visual appearance, pressure and more.
- ● Actuate a valve or solonoid
- ● Spin a motor
- ● Position a joint or motor
- ● Communicate results
- ● Provide control
In this world, the Unison OS can play a key role in the areas of intelligent sensors, motion and motor drives, communication networks, and low level control.
Typical products include:
- ● Hydraulic Sensors
- ● Pressure Sensors
- ● Temperature Sensors
- ● Motion Control
- ● Motor Control
- ● CAN
- ● USB
- ● TCP
- ● Vision capture and analysis
- ● Timing recovery
- ● Motion estimation
- ● Image compression
- ● Filtering
- ● Fourier Transforms
- ● Noise Reduction
- ● Graphics displays
- ● Machine control and monitoring with MTConnect
- ● Cloud connection using Azure IoT, MQTT, CoAP, Websockets, DDS and more
In addition to providing all the components required for Manufacturing system development, running out of the box on standard hardware, Unison OS is packaged to reduce the cost of your development. It is not necessary to purchase a very expensive royalty free license to run a few test fixtures or measurement systems. Prototyping is free. When you start commercial use, only then do you require a license and then purchase only the features you need. Software modules are priced from $99 USD.
Manufacturing and Industrial control applications can benefit greatly using Unison RTOS.
