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