  • 1
    Analog to digital conversion is commonly used because:
    Few computers are digital
    This boost the signal
    Many sensors are analog
    Almost all sensors are digital
  • 2
    The advantages of semi-automation, with both people and machines involved in the manufacturing process, are the:
    Maintenance times available
    Reduced cost of expensive machines
    Use of the greater flexibility and ingenuity of people
  • 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
    Potentiometer
    Ventri tube
    Solenoid
  • 5
    The optimum system response to feedback is referred to as:
    A discrete system
    A continuous system
    Critically damped
    Underdamped
  • 6
    An actuator commonly used to act as a type of switch would be a:
    Solenoid
    Stepper motor
    Thermistor
    Relay
  • 7
    When discussing automated manufacturing systems, the term "noise" would refer to:
    A loud machine
    Unwanted electrical signals
    High frequency electrical signals
    A machine that is most likely faulty
  • 8
    The three basic types of automated manufacturing systems are:
    Electronic, mechanical and pneumatic
    Manual, electronic and microprocessor
    Batch, continuous and discrete
    Batch, prototype and discrete
  • 9
    The most suitable sensor for detecting a sudden change of motion is:
    A magnetic transducer
    An accelerator
    A linear potentiometer
    A relay
  • 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
    This process is much less expensive to set up in the first place
    Machines never make mistakes like human workers do
