The Development and Experiment of the MSMA Actuator Test Platform Based on LabVIEW
Data acquisition is very important for control precision of micro-positioning platform. Based on LabVIEW, a kind of MSMA (Magnetically Controlled Shape Memory Alloy) test platform was developed, and the data acquisition, programming and testing was studied. The deformation mechanism of MSMA was analyzed, and the characteristics of MSMA were obtained by experimental study, the relationship curves between displacement and current, and the curves between magnetic field and current were tested. Experiments show that the test platform for intelligent materials is excellent and reliable, and the paper provided a good research platform for the study on properties of intelligent materials.
