Advanced crane simulator
12 December 2012
three-axis motion platform based on Baldor Electric Company's Ethernet-compatible drives is helping to further increase the realism of crane training experience by physically moving a simulator system's replica operator
The three-axis motion platform provides X, Y and Z movement of the replica operator cabin, synchronised to the computer-generated images being presented to the trainee. Each axis is driven by a Baldor BSM 3- phase servomotor with an incremental encoder for position and velocity feedback.
