6DOF Low Cost Systems (6 Degrees of Freedom)

6DOF Low Cost Systems (6 Degrees of Freedom)

CKAS Mechatronics has introduced the world's first small scale personal 6 degree of freedom (6DOF) Motion Platforms or Motion Systems - the W3s and W6s, specifically directed at very low cost small scale high fidelity motion simulator applications, such as commercial simulators, next generation consumer coin-operated arcade entertainment simulators, home built high fidelity flight simulators or home built high fidelity racing entertainment simulators all with payloads as high as 600kg

The CKAS W3s and W6s 6DOF Motion Systems (600kg capable W6s pictured above - laptop shown for size comparison only) features a mere 200kg total weight (460kg for W6s), 1160mm total width (1450mm for W6s), and sits only 360mm high (365mm for W6s), therefore eliminating the need for any specialised stair or gangway for stepping up onto it. CKAS has used the knowledge it has developed for the heavier motion systems to design these units, incorporating industry leading electronics, encoders and actuators. The expected life of the W3s and W6s is extremely high for the price point, and the maintenance requirements are minimal, especially important in commercial or consumer based applications. The target market of the CKAS W3s and W6s 6DOF Motion System can be any of the following single seater applications:

Small Scale Compact High Fidelity Flight Training Devices for Commercial and Military applications
Small Scale High Fidelity Commercial Vehicle and Truck Driver Training Simulators
Small Scale High Fidelity Mining Equipment Simulators and Heavy Earth Moving Equipment Simulators
Small Scale High Fidelity Train Driver Simulators
Next Generation Unsupervised Coin-operated Motion Simulator Arcade Machines
Home Built High Fidelity Flight Simulators
Home Built High Fidelity Car Racing Simulators

As with all our Generation III capable motion systems, the W3s and W6s units have real-time Reverse Kinematics, Forward Kinematics and Full featured Washout Cueing Filters all completely "on-board" meaning that any client application can operate these systems at even the "vehicle acceleration" level completely independent of any other software (See Gen III Connectivity Matrix document for more information).
CKAS W3s and W6s Motion Platform (ready to use) - (W3sMP / W6sMP)

Ideal for OEM manufacturers of existing simulator products or home builders who are looking for a cost effective method to instantly add full high fidelity motion to an existing or new design. These units are pre-built to CKAS standards, and are USB plug and play straight out of the box (with optional Ethernet support). The only assembly required is to bolt on whatever goes on top of the motion system. This unit comes with a 1 year faulty part return to base warranty.
