Universal Control Module

The Universal External Control Unit (UECU) operating system allows the downloading of user applications and parameters as well as real-time control from a host PC using Mathworks software (Simulink Real Time).

The UECU is powered through an internal rechargeable battery, which can provide five hours of continuous operation, and an external battery pack that can provide an additional five hours of operating. The UECU design incorporates multiple safety features, including two levels of battery charge warnings, coupling status warnings, and internal error messages. The UECU is housed in a portable enclosure which includes input switches and a screen that can be configured to maximize function for each specific application. It measures approximately 16 x 9 x 5 cm and weighs ~1lb.
