  • 1
    Analog to digital conversion is commonly used because:
    Almost all sensors are digital
    Few computers are digital
    Many sensors are analog
    This boost the signal
  • 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
    Program in the microprocessor
    Relationships between system components
    Damping used in the system design
  • 4
    The name of the sensor used to measure applied pressure is:
    Strain gauge
    Ventri tube
  • 5
    The optimum system response to feedback is referred to as:
    Critically damped
    A discrete system
    A continuous system
  • 6
    An actuator commonly used to act as a type of switch would be a:
    Stepper motor
  • 7
    When discussing automated manufacturing systems, the term "noise" would refer to:
    A machine that is most likely faulty
    A loud machine
    High frequency electrical signals
    Unwanted electrical signals
  • 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
    An accelerator
    A magnetic transducer
    A relay
  • 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
    Data from the design stage can be integrated using the software
    This process is much less expensive to set up in the first place
