21.1. - Constitution and Key Features
. Are formed by DC motors, and a speed reducer, together with a position sensor, and a feed back control system.
. In other words, motors are controlled in position (angular or linear).
. Are small and have a wide range of torques.
21.2. - Principle of Operation
. The positioning mechanism adjusts the angular position by means of a coded signal that is sent to it. While this signal is present at its input it retains its angular position.
. Typically the command signal is in the form PWM (Pulse Width Modulation), ie the angular position will depend on the pulse width sent / received.
Note: If you want to deepen their knowledge about the Pulse Width Modulation, Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) in English, see this article in 4 parts:
22. - Engine Step-by-Step
22.1. Key Features
. They are used in applications that require little strength;
. Can rotate clockwise and counterclockwise;
. Admit incremental variations of angular accuracy;
. Have repeated moves fairly accurate (high repeatability);
. Have low torque;
. Allow a torque support at zero speed;
. Your control can be digital.
In either case, power supplies are continuous and require a digital circuit that produces the sequence of control signals for the motor to function as intended.
. The way in which the engine will work depends largely on the specific application.
. There are cases in which the most important is the torque in other precision, still other speed.
. To be able to work with a motor step-by-step, we need to know their operating characteristics, such as the supply voltage, the maximum current (supported by the coils), degree (accuracy), the torque.
. These engines have various ways of being driven, the most common being the half-step and full step.
22.3.1. Full Step
. In the full step mode can actuate one or two coils in each step, and in the case of a coil consumption and torque will be lower.
. In the following table we can see the sequence of steps in a clockwise direction and the drive coils of a motor driven in full step, with only a coil fed.
. In the case of the full mode fed with two coils, has higher torque and a higher consumption. The speed is also usually higher in this case, but an engine step-by-step, the maximum speed is highly dependent on electronics and control strategy that is being used.
22.3.2. - Half Step
. In half-step mode operation, we combine the two previous strategies, thereby obtaining an effect of each half-step change in the drive coils.
. This mode consumes more power, but how can we work with smaller steps, the accuracy is higher. Torque is similar to the previous method, but the speed is often low.
Note: To change the direction of motor rotation, reverse the sequence of steps.
24. - Pneumatic Actuators
24.1. Features and General
. Are similar to hydraulic, with the difference of using air instead of oil.
. The air is highly compressible so that these actuators have low precision and strength, but instead, a high speed.
. The linear pneumatic actuators (cylinders) require complex systems for controlling the position of the points along its course, and therefore can not be applied to uses which require accuracy.
. However, many tasks in industrial processes exist which require only linear actuators which work between these two extreme positions (cylinder fully retracted or fully extended), in which they have a good repeatability.
. Are simple tasks, like material handling, workholding and separating objects, operations, known generically as "catch-and-sets."
. Its low cost and the creation of compressed air makes them very attractive for these simple tasks.
. You can use the pneumatic actuator for rotary joints directly (rotary actuators) or reducing (pneumatic motors lobes or vanes).
. These applications are very specific and only displayed when there are restrictions on the use of electric or hydraulic actuators.
. The programming of these actuators can be done via PLC or even just switches distributors or end-of-course. This type of programming allows some flexibility in the sequence of the drives, but it is quite limited when it comes to changes in the shape and task to be performed.
. We can conclude that pneumatic systems are closer to a Fixed automation than the programmable automation.
