  • 1
    Analog to digital conversion is commonly used because:
    Few computers are digital
    Many sensors are analog
    Almost all sensors are digital
    This boost the signal
  • 2
    The advantages of semi-automation, with both people and machines involved in the manufacturing process, are the:
    Use of the greater flexibility and ingenuity of people
    Maintenance times available
    Reduced cost of expensive machines
  • 3
    A block diagram is sued to illustrate the:
    Cost of system components
    Relationships between system components
    Damping used in the system design
    Program in the microprocessor
  • 4
    The name of the sensor used to measure applied pressure is:
    Strain gauge
    Solenoid
    Ventri tube
    Potentiometer
  • 5
    The optimum system response to feedback is referred to as:
    A continuous system
    Critically damped
    A discrete system
    Underdamped
  • 6
    An actuator commonly used to act as a type of switch would be a:
    Solenoid
    Thermistor
    Stepper motor
    Relay
  • 7
    When discussing automated manufacturing systems, the term "noise" would refer to:
    A machine that is most likely faulty
    Unwanted electrical signals
    High frequency electrical signals
    A loud machine
  • 8
    The three basic types of automated manufacturing systems are:
    Electronic, mechanical and pneumatic
    Batch, continuous and discrete
    Batch, prototype and discrete
    Manual, electronic and microprocessor
  • 9
    The most suitable sensor for detecting a sudden change of motion is:
    A linear potentiometer
    A magnetic transducer
    A relay
    An accelerator
  • 10
    Computer aided manufacturing is used so much these days because:
    Human workers cause a lot of problems with sickness and stoppages
    Data from the design stage can be integrated using the software
    Machines never make mistakes like human workers do
    This process is much less expensive to set up in the first place
