Mechatronics Meaning | Mechatronics Subjects | Mechatronics Control Equipment’s | Mechatronics Engineering

Mechatronics, which is also called mechatronic engineering, is a multidisciplinary branch of engineering that focuses on the engineering of both electrical and mechanical systems, and also includes a combination of robotics, electronics, computer, telecommunications, systems, control, and product engineering. As technology advances over time, various subfields of engineering have succeeded in both adapting and multiplying. The intention of mechatronics is to produce a design solution that unifies each of these various subfields. Originally, the field of mechatronics was intended to be nothing more than a combination of mechanics and electronics, hence the name being a portmanteau of mechanics and electronics; however, as the complexity of technical systems continued to evolve, the definition had been broadened to include more technical areas.

microprocessor are essential for many of the products we use every day such as TVs cars, radio, home appliance, and computers.  microprocessor based controls also called microcontrollers. microcontroller is a digital integrated circuits which serves as a heart of many modern control applications.

microprocessor and microcontrollers are similar but the architecture of the both differs in the applications domains. microprocessor are employed for high speed applications such as desktop and laptop computers whereas the microcontroller are employed in automations and control applications such as microwave ovens, automatic washing machines, dish washers, engine management system, DVD players etc.

Sequential Control System | Washing Machine System Basic Operation

Sequential Control system for a Washing machine system

In many situation, various operations of a plant or process take place in a particular order. A sequential control system involve the sequential execution of well- defined operations that are performed in a prescribed order. Each operations or activity is called step. Each step may be an open or closed loop continues process or even a sequential sub- process. For example, while using automatic camera, the various basic steps in a sequence are switch on, battery check, auto- focus the image, auto flash on/off, taking the image, saving the image and then switching off the camera.

Each step of the prescribed sequence usually requires a switching of the equipment configuration and it may be triggered by time or an event(push of a button, completion of early task etc.).

An automatic control system is a pre-set closed loop control system that requires no operator action. Most of the closed-loop control systems are automatic in nature. It assumes that the process remains in the normal range for the control system. Various applications of automatic control systems are explained below.
