  • 1
    Analog to digital conversion is commonly used because:
    Many sensors are analog
    Almost all sensors are digital
    Few computers 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
    Reduced cost of expensive machines
    Maintenance times available
  • 3
    A block diagram is sued to illustrate the:
    Program in the microprocessor
    Cost of system components
    Damping used in the system design
    Relationships between system components
  • 4
    The name of the sensor used to measure applied pressure is:
    Potentiometer
    Strain gauge
    Ventri tube
    Solenoid
  • 5
    The optimum system response to feedback is referred to as:
    Underdamped
    A discrete system
    A continuous system
    Critically damped
  • 6
    An actuator commonly used to act as a type of switch would be a:
    Stepper motor
    Thermistor
    Solenoid
    Relay
  • 7
    When discussing automated manufacturing systems, the term "noise" would refer to:
    Unwanted electrical signals
    A machine that is most likely faulty
    A loud machine
    High frequency electrical signals
  • 8
    The three basic types of automated manufacturing systems are:
    Manual, electronic and microprocessor
    Batch, continuous and discrete
    Electronic, mechanical and pneumatic
    Batch, prototype and discrete
  • 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
