Closed Loop motion control offers precise, smooth motion control in the field of Dynamic testing application. The control system consists of a PC based Data acquisition system, Man Machine Interface software, Motion controller & Servo actuator with inbuilt load cell, Temposonic position sensor and Servo valve. The Man Machine interface software loaded into the PC allows the user to set the desired motion patterns and acquires the system data from various sensors for user display, plotting and report generation. The motion pattern or command set by the Man Machine interface software will be fed into the Digital RMC70 motion controller for the execution.
The Servo Actuator consists of inbuilt high resolution (up to 0.5 microns) position sensor and Load Cell. The High response Servo valve is used to drive the Servo Actuator. The RMC70 motion controller continuously reads position / force information (2000 reads / sec) from inbuilt position sensor and load cell for precise monitoring and control of servo actuator position / force. The designed servo actuator is capable of moving at a rate up to 10Hz.
The RMC70 Motion Controller can be programmed to operate in Load control mode (by closing the loop with Load Cell), position/Velocity control mode (by closing the loop with inbuilt position sensor) or both position and force control mode (by closing loop with both Position sensor and Load Cell).
