"YOUR AUTOMATION SPECIALISTS!"

RW Automation, LLC strives to produce high-quality, relevant, cost-effective solutions for all your automation needs. In addition to custom engineering services, RW Automation also offers a growing line of off-the-shelf products. Our customers include many large and small companies, as well as research institutions and universities.


MOTION CONTROL
Stepper motor control.
The MC3B three-axis motor stepper motor controller/driver allows full independent or synchronous control over three bipolar or unipolar stepper motors. Holding and running currents of up to 2A/phase are selectable via the convenient RS-232 serial interface. Six independently assignable home/limit switch inputs are provided. High-quality detachable terminal blocks are provided for quick connect/disconnect. A concise, well-documented serial command set, along with a simple PC-based motor control application (source code provided) makes setup a breeze.

Solenoid control.
The SC5 solenoid controller can drive five independent solenoids at 4A each. User selectable peak-and-hold timing and PWM frequency allows for reduced heating of solenoids over a wide range of operating voltages. Control of solenoids can be performed by using concise, well-documented ASCII commands via the RS-232 interface. Alternatively, the solenoids can be controlled directly via 3.3V (5V tolerant) logic-level inputs.

The SC12 solenoid controller can drive twelve independent solenoids at 2A continuous each (up to 10A peak). User selectable peak-and-hold timing and PWM frequency allows for reduced heating of solenoids over a wide range of operating voltages. Control of solenoids can be performed by using concise, well-documented ASCII commands via the RS-232 interface. Alternatively, the solenoids can be controlled directly via 3.3V logic-level inputs.


MACHINE VISION
MV lib is RW Automation's machine vision software library, which is available for integration into PC-based vision systems. Just some of its numerous features include: image load/save in several formats, image generation and graphics, image algebra, image transforms, filters, morphology, normalized correlation search, fiducial locator, segmentation, and projections. MV Tool v1.0.1 is available free for download. This is a full-featured application, based on MV lib, that allows users to try out all of the features of MV lib.


EMBEDDED SYSTEMS
The RW Automation Coldfire 3.3V BDM parallel port interface allows full control over Freescale ColdFire 52xx, 53xx, and 54xx processors by interfacing with ColdFire's on-chip emulation (background debug mode) functionality. Its compatibility with other brands of parallel port BDM interfaces allows it to be used on a wide range of development tools.


CONSULTING / CUSTOM DESIGNS
Engineering services are provided with attentiveness and an eye for detail. Offering software/firmware, electrical, mechanical, and optical design services; no project is too big or too small. In addition to rapid prototyping, RW Automation can take your design from concept to full production. Our team of experienced engineers has created and launched hundreds of successful products. Have a costly legacy product that needs a makeover? RW Automation designers can shake the material costs out of the product while making it more reliable and easier to manufacture.
