Abstract
THIS IS A PROPOSAL TO DESIGN, CONSTRUCT, TEST AND DELIVER A LABORATORY BURNER SYSTEM WITH MICROPROCESSOR CONTROL OF FOUR DEGREES OF POSITIONAL FREEDOM (XYZ0) AND OF TWO FLOWRATES. THE BURNER WILL HAVE A UNIVERSAL BASE UPON WHICH LIQUID COOLED BURNER TIPS CAN BE INSTALLED. TWO TIPS, A JET TIP AND A FLAT FLAME TIP, WILL BE PROVIDED UNLESS OTHER TYPES ARE REQUESTED. THE POSITIONING STAGE WILL BE ASSEMBLED FROM STEPPER MOTOR DRIVEN OPTICAL POSITIONING TABLES TO GIVE LINEAR RESOLUTIONS OF 0.000050 IN. AND ANGULAR RESOLUTIONS OF 0.2 ARC MIN. THE MOTORS WILL BE DRIVEN BY A FOUR AXIS PROGRAMMABLE MICROSTEP CONTROLLER WHICH WILL INCLUDE IEEE-488 AND RS-232C INTERFACES TO PROVIDE THE ALTERNATIVE OF CONTROL BY EXTERNAL COMPUTERS. THE FLOW CONTROLLER WILL ALSO BE MICROPROCESSOR CONTROLLED AND, WHILE INITIALLY CONFIGURED TO CONTROL TWO FLOWS, IT WILL BE CAPABLE OF EXPANSIONS TO CONTROL ADDITIONAL FLOWS. IT WILL ACCEPT EXTERNAL COMPUTER CONTROL IF SUITABLE INTERFACES ARE PROVIDED. THE ENTIRE SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED TO EVENTUALLY INTERFACE WITH AN EXTERNAL COMPUTER WHICH CAN OUTPUT COMMANDS, ACCEPT (AND WITH NECESSARY SOFTWARE REDUCE) DATA AND REPORT EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS IN NEAR REAL TIMEP; THUS PROVIDING FOR FULLY AUTOMATED EXPERIMENTS.
