Highlights of the reduction: Worm Gear for Servo Applications

  • Preloaded input taper bearings, providing higher stiffness, 2 bearings mounted on same side insure constant preload while temperature raises. It maximizes bearing life. On the opposite side, an axial free ball bearing.
  • Optimized contact pattern, a unique process to cut gears, combined to a state of the art assembly lead to a complete pattern surface, reducing drastically the contact pressure providing an unmatched wear resistance and lifetime.
  • Maintenance free, life lubricated units with high performance synthetic lubricant.
  • High stiffness bellow coupling eliminating shaft alignment problems.
  • Oversized taper roller bearings, providing unmatched radial loads
  • Single piece housing, made of cast and heat treated aluminum magnesium alloy, offering superior rigidity and low weight.
  • Auto braking device, eliminating the need for an extra brake or cooling on the system.

MFS motion control software specifications

  • Easy and quick software setup. No driver installation, no library installation. Runs on every windows PC. Just copy-paste and run. Thus, no need for installing USB drivers and conflicts, etc…
  • Software protection that won’t require reg keys or heavy process and cpu load
  • 100Mbps Ethernet connection to the motion controller gives you plug and play access to the motion controller. The high bandwidth of this standard communication channel ensures maximum performance of the motion platform servo drives giving you quick response time to get the best out of your system. This makes it possible to simulate for a wide range of applications, from slow soft movement to rough and very hard vibration.
  • Ethernet connection also allows you to place your motion control PC wherever you want. Easy to find cables, easy to find switches, etc.
  • Auto-monitoring / auto recovery system: the software provides a robust interface to the motion controller and the simulation game. Any disconnection is auto-recovered to avoid interruption of your game pleasure.
  • Load indication: At all times the load of the motors can be monitored from the main screen (see main screen screenshot under overview tab). They will help you to design your cockpit weight balance and will indicate when service (greasing) of mechanical parts are necessary. This will guarantee maximum performance at all time.
  • Easy manual control of each axis. They can be individually controlled or in a multi-axis mode (see manual control window screenshot under overview tab). This allows maximum working flexibility for setup and service of your system.
  • Quick and easy configuration of the platform settings (see platform configuration window screenshot under overview tab). The entire platform behavior can be adapted to the needs of your setup. Platform limitations and acceleration can be matched to give you maximum game time pleasure/performance and minimum stress on the expensive and fragile parts of your cockpit the motion to your room specifications.
  • You can adapt each axes separately. Thus you can get start with a better solution with wider movements that you can limit and unleash once the system is placed in a bigger room with higher ceiling. In other words, there is no need to buy a small system and switch to a bigger one later when space allows.
  • Fadeout braking system (tunable) to avoid rough and unrealistic shocks.
  • Ultra realistic and highly customizable motion cueing: The motion cueing algorithm provides a realistic simulation of all important parts of simulation.( For instance in Flight Simulation : Turbulence generation, take off force feedback, braking push forward, landing touchdown, terrain vibration on the ground, washouts for all movements such as pitch, roll, sway…)
  • For every simulation, a profile can be selected or generated to optimize the motion and washout filters in every situation. Standard profiles for most common vehicle are available (Airliners, GA, Helicopters, truck, racing car, boat, spaceship …). They can be selected, copied or optimized and fine-tuned according to your needs.
  • Prerecorded motion scenario available (sea motion in different condition, different terrain, … ideal for motion thrill ride or industrial testing
  • Extended troubleshooting possibilities: the status of each axis can be monitored at any time (see diagnosis screen screenshot under overview tab). Our diagnosis screen which allows us to monitor different parameters of the motors like temperature, error codes… makes it easier for us to offer quick and appropriate support with minimum effort and minimum downtime for your system.
  • Motion recording: platform motion recording will provide you with a visual image of your last simulation. This will help you to tune the parameters (washout filters, landing impact…) of your simulation to its maximum. Getting a visual image of your simulation is very important to understand the motion behavior and to compare different sets of parameters.
  • Motor parameter tuning for optimum responsiveness (expert mode for MFS technicians).
  • High compatibility:
    • Prerecorded motion scenario
    • Microsoft Flight Simulator (FS2004, FS9, FSX)

    • Ride films
    • Other games or simulator platforms available on request.
  • Update rate of the motion controller : 20ms

Solutions for developers

Developers can control our motion platforms in 2 ways.

The .NET DLL (API.DLL) holds easy access functions to control our motion controller (For instance: enable platform, disable platform, setPitch, setRoll, etc). This DLL can be integrated into the customers own proprietary software package. An API document describes all available functions.

The MFS Ethernet protocol is used to control the MFS motion controller. The protocol is TCP/IP based and allows customers to control the platform from another Ethernet capable embedded controller or other non-windows hardware. The protocol is described in a single PDF document.
