Qube-Servo 3 comes with a quick-connect inertia disk and an inverted pendulum module. You can also design and 3D print your own module to expand the scope of the experiment or create an engaging student project. Take advantage of the comprehensive ABET-aligned course material for MATLAB® Simulink®, or design and validate your own controllers. With additional language support in Python and C/C++, new features include the disable headband compensation and direct control of the PWM duty cycle.

  • Portable: Light weight and small form factor
  • Safe: Built-in motor stall protection and thermal
  • Comprehensive Courseware: ABET-aligned courseware mapped to popular control engineering textbooks and compatible with all existing QUBE – Servo 2
  • Options: Inertia disk and pendulum attachment included
