Imagine a versatile, robust, refined and integrated control lab workstation that gives you piece of mind. First, most Quanser plants come with extensive curriculum. Plants, data acquisition cards, amplifiers and controllers are also supplied with your purchase. All these components were engineered to ensure your lab equipment runs reliably, with little maintenance, for years.
Plants, data acquisition boards, amplifiers and even curriculum are fully integrated with MATLAB®/Simulink®. To design control models, MATLAB users will require QUARC® real-time software add-on software from Quanser. QUARC seamlessly integrates with Simulink for rapid controls prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop testing. It is fully integrated with Real Time Workshop. You can draw a controller, generate code and run it in real-time without time-consuming hand coding. QUARC licenses can be purchased with your workstation.

LabVIEW users will require the Quanser Rapid Control Prototyping (RCP) Toolkit, an add-on to the National Instruments graphical development environment. Combined with the LabVIEW™ Control Design and Simulation module and Quanser Q1-cRIO module for NI CompactRIO controller, the Qunser RCP Toolkit is a powerful control design tool which spans the spectrum of design from simulation to control implementation. Using RCP Toolkit you can simplify hardware setup and interfacing and shorten the controller development cycle. Click here to learn more about the Quanser RCP Toolkit for NI LabVIEW.
Based on the requirements of your experimental plant, our teaching workstation comes with PCI-based or USB-based boards, optimized for control systems. These boards are compatible with LabVIEW™ and MATLAB®/Simulink®. Click here for more details.
Easy-connect terminal boards and cables link your amplifier to your Quanser plant. Based on the requirements of your experimental plant, Quanser workstation includes voltage or current amplifier modules to ensure reliable real-time performance of your system. Click here for more details.
Spend less time preparing course material and more time helping students cultivate a deep understanding of control theories through real-life applications. Our extensive pedagogical course materials put textbook or classroom theories into practice. Included with most teaching solutions, Quanser course materials are suitable for undergraduate or graduate levels. Click here for more details
Quanser plants come with a convenient value-add. The controllers address a wide variety of curriculum topics from introductory to advanced. Use them with LabVIEW or with MATLAB/Simulink and QUARC. Plus all Quanser systems come with fully documented system models and parameters.
Quanser systems are designed to suit both instructional and research needs. Many professors utilize the same workstation for undergraduate teaching as well as exploration at the masters level or for innovative research.
