Presentation Description

Positioning sensors are devices that generate useful measurement signals based on monitored physical processes. Very often, this process is a linear movement of the actuator. This means that the sensor controls the position of the moving element (rod or carriage). Linear motion sensors can continuously transmit information to the control system or operate in a specific location. Therefore, control over the actuator is guaranteed during the production work process and other operations. The use of the actuator with the sensor achieves precise and efficient control of the actuator position and realizes the advantages of the actuator as an electric linear motion automation device.

Title:- Linear actuator position control with sensors. Positioning sensors are devices that generate useful measurement signals based on monitored physical processes. Very often this process is a linear movement of the actuator. This means that the sensor controls the position of the moving element rod or carriage. Linear motion sensors can continuously transmit information to the control system or operate in a specific location. Therefore control over the actuator is guaranteed during the production work process and other operations. The use of the actuator with the sensor achieves precise and efficient control of the actuator position and realizes the advantages of the actuator as an electric linear motion automation device. What do you need to control your location To control the position of the linear actuator you can use any sensor that simplifies the control of the linear actuator. The actuators and target antennas to be controlled can be mounted on stock products in various ways depending on the specific conditions. In particular it is possible to use adhesive compositions and nylon screws. Such linear motion automation sensors are suitable for operating optical sensors or sensors with electrical contacts in unreliable adverse environmental conditions. Linear motion sensor encoders work perfectly even after continuous operation. Non-contact photoelectric readings on the scale of the reading head and the ball bearing guides extend their life cycle. Thanks to the special reading method the housing the linear displacement sensor is particularly well protected from contamination. The robust shield protects the signal from distortion. This is the most important aspect of a linear actuator that implements position control. Types of linear actuator position sensors:- There are several types of linear actuator position controls that are most frequently observed in the global industrial market. Limit switch limit sensor: an adjustable mechanical sensor that opens or closes an electrical circuit in a specific position in an actuator. When activated the normally open sensor closes the circuit and the current can flow but when the normally closed sensor is open no current flows. This small auxiliary device can be installed both on the moving part and on the rotating element of the actuator. By adjusting the limit switch both actuator stroke lengths can be limited to the desired range. Hall Effect Sensor: A contactless semiconductor magnetic sensor that can track the relative position of the actuator by measuring the size of the magnetic field. The level of the output signal depends on the change in the magnetic field between the stationary plate and the magnetic field when the stationary sensor and the movable plate move relative to each other. Position feedback can be performed with the help of the Hall sensor which gives you the flexibility to control the actuator.

Resistance potentiometers:- A three terminals which depends on the angle or linear movement between the mobile and fixed elements. The fixed contact is fixed at one end of the coil or resistance plate and a removable brush moves along it. When the resistance voltage is supplied to the potentiometer and the resistance changes the current output the measurement signal changes. The potentiometer is an analog sensor the resistance value varies with movement and is unique in each position. Reed switch sealed contacts: Non-contact electromechanical magnetic sensor. Inside the sealed glass bag of the reed switch is a reed contact that closes when a magnetic field is applied. The reed switch is simple durable no noise but fragile and of moderate speed. How to control the position of the linear actuator:- Linear motion sensors are widely used. Designed for use in machine tools and installations with adjustable feed shafts such as milling machines lathes and grinders machining centers and horizontal boring machines. The excellent dynamic characteristics of the linear motion sensor high speed movement and acceleration can be used with common very dynamic axes and linear motion actuators. The linear motion sensor detects the position of the linear axis without additional mechanical transmission elements. When performing the linear positioning of the actuator with a linear motion sensor the control loop covers the actuator mechanism. In this way linear motion sensors can identify the spread of the mechanics axial error and compensate in the control electronics. This method helps to rule out several errors of origin such as positioning errors due to the heating of the ball screw errors due to the presence of clearance in the ball screw kinematic errors due to errors in the passage of the ball screw. For machines with high demands for positioning accuracy and processing speed linear displacement sensors must be used. Mechanical structure:- It describes how to control the position of the linear actuator in a project that needs a smooth and stable performance. The closed sensor the scale and the reading elements of the sensor are protected by dust file and water in an aluminum case. The elastic seal covers the lower housing. The reading element moves along the scale with minimal friction. The coupling mechanism connects the reading element to the head of the reading housing thus compensating for the misalignment between the scale and the calibrating machine tool. Depending on the type of sensor used to improve the positional feedback of the linear actuator the lateral and height displacements allowed between the reading head and the scale are ± 0.2 to ± 0.3 mm. Linear actuator sensors with small profile sizes are designed for use with a limited installation space. The use of mounting brackets and special fasteners allows long measurement lengths and higher acceleration loads.

Additional method to control the position of the actuator:- Linear motion sensors use the physical phenomenon of magnetostriction. The heart of a linear displacement sensor is a ferromagnetic measuring element called a waveguide. Permanent moving positioning magnets induce a magnetic field in the waveguide. A current pulse that travels in the waveguide causes a second magnetic field that is radial to the waveguide to form a direction. At some point two opposite magnetic fields cause the appearance of a torsion pulse. This pulse in the form of material sound waves travels at a constant ultrasonic speed from the measuring point to the end of the measuring element. Here is the receiver head of the linear actuator sensor with the position indicator of the linear displacement sensor. With this head the received signal becomes a proportional route. The use of controlled electric actuators in various fields is justified by the wide range of benefits they provide. This allows for a more flexible timely and economical production process and the use of self- regulating electric linear actuators is now widespread and continues to expand to provide the best indicators of production quality and greatly improve the implementation of energy consumption and other resources. It can be reduced. Sensor system: a special set of devices and tools to program technical processes and perform technical processes and individual technical tasks. Through the use of sensors several parameters are programmed to guarantee start-stop moments speed and displacement drive brakes drive torque characteristics and process execution
