Mechatronics is a broad-brush description of mechanical components with electric drives and electronic controls.
MarchantCain’s expertise has grown from in-depth knowledge of window regulator and moving glass systems, including what is referred to as glass choreography.
We have a wide supplier base offering a range of motors/actuators and we select the optimum motor for each customer’s application. These actuators can include built-in electronics (sensors) or the electronics can be remotely positioned in an Electronic Control Unit (ECU) which takes information from the in-built sensors of the motor/actuator.
As we are designing the mechatronic system, we define the output of the motors or sensors and describe this to the customer in a boundary diagram to ensure that the required inputs and outputs meet the agreed specification.
We can model load characteristics of the system and begin to develop the operating envelope of the ECU.
MarchantCain is a global designer, developer and manufacturer of window regulators with more than 25 years’ experience in the industry.
