Real time controller based on FPGA technology for high performance control loop (5kHz frequency for the indenter with or without the VHSRM, and 100kHz with the optional UHSRM):
- LapTop (dual core i3, 4GB RAM, Windows 10 or newer operating system);
- Very high performance multifunction I/O boards (up to 1M samples/s for load measurement with the VHSRM and the UHSRM);
- -30V to + 150V piezo amplifier for driving the indentation head;
- Driver for micro-positioning system.
Optional 4 user input channels (BNC) +/- 10 V, 16 bit, up to 1 MSamples/s (ECO-U)
