How to install the photoelectric switch of Linear modules,Timing Belt Actuator ？
Photoelectric switch is used in many automatic production, and linear module including Timing Belt Actuator must be used for linear motion control of linear module. Many customers buy linear modules but don’t know how to use photoelectric switch. Today, linear module manufacturers tell you how to use photoelectric switch.
First of all, we should know that the photoelectric switch in linear module is actually a sensor, also known as the limit switch. It can install three sensors into the groove on the side of module body and place them in the direction of the demand test. Of course, only two sensors can be used according to the demand.
The installation of photoelectric switch is very simple.
First of all, let’s ensure that the combination of single axis module or multi axis module device,including hydraulic timing belt actuator is completed, then install the servo motor and pay attention to the arrangement of wiring, and then install photoelectric switch on the side of the module (pay attention to the orientation of the detection piece). At least there is a limit switch at both ends of the module. Use the equipped nut to fix the photoelectric switch and sort out the wiring. Linear modules, including hydraulic timing belt actuator are divided into semi closed series and fully closed series. The models of photoelectric switches used in the two series are different. Please consult the sales staff for details.
If you need a drag chain device, you can carry out the corresponding orientation device according to the requirements of the drag chain device. Be careful not to mix with the cable of the sensor motor. After ensuring that there is no problem with the motor and module body device or hydraulic timing belt actuator, power on for work test to check whether there is abnormal noise and poor working conditions. After there is no problem, you can choose whether to carry out accuracy test.
Finally, we need to pay attention to the wiring fault or overvoltage burning out of the photoelectric switch of the linear module. If the positive and negative poles of the photoelectric switch are reversed, the photoelectric switch will be damaged. Other photoelectric switches cannot share the power supply with the motor driver or other rational loads. Otherwise, the reverse electromotive force generated by the motor or rational loads will greatly shake the voltage and burn out the photoelectric switch.
In the field of linear drive motor, there is a kind of Maglev linear motor, which has always been at the forefront of professional application. In recent years, it has been used more and more in major high-precision occupations. The linear motor module is beginning to emerge with its characteristics of low noise, low friction, high speed and high precision.
Maglev linear motor uses the most cutting-edge skills of direct drive profession and often appears in high-tech fine electromechanical products such as fine direct drive motion platform and high-end automation equipment. It is widely used in different fields such as electronic and semiconductor equipment, medical devices, fine detection instruments, laser profession, semi conductor profession, panel profession, lithium battery profession and so on. The series of linear motor modules developed and produced by focusing on the linear motion control system have stable quality, high precision, small cogging force, stable speed in the trekking process (± 0.5% speed shaking), and the selection is also different in different occupations.
The following is an analysis of the application of fine laser cutting equipment and medical equipment:
First, fine laser cutting equipment
First of all, we can understand that linear motor has been used in many high-precision laser cutting occupations, but there are still small problems. For example, there are iron core linear motor modules in the process of high-end laser cutting. Due to the existence of cogging force, the trekking speed is unstable, resulting in fine tooth marks or wavy marks visible to the naked eye in the process of circular arc interpolation or linear interpolation. Of course, if we can choose coreless linear motor, but in this way, the cost will be greatly increased, and it is often unbearable for enterprises.
The iron core linear motor can be used in high-end laser cutting equipment without increasing the application cost of general enterprise modules. Among them, TML series is specially used in the laser cutting industry. It has ultra-low cogging force, which is almost comparable to the American coreless linear motor module, and the speed change rate in the process of trekking is within ± 0.5%. When used in laser cutting equipment, the arc part has a good and neat arc transition, and there is no tooth shape trace visible to the naked eye.
Second, fine medical equipment occupation
Recently, the application of fine linear motor is the first example of medical linear motor in China. First of all, the outer diameter of the mandrel of the guide wire is generally between 0.05-0.20mm, and the spring distance between the guide wires is about 0.08-0.15mm, so the accuracy control requirements in the whole process of wire feeding trek are very high. In the process of wire guide winding, the linear module shall serve as the wire guide spring winding positioning and wire feeding head.
Obviously, the use of ordinary linear modules can not meet the requirements, and the developed DML175 linear modules have been successfully used in the project (length 4000mm), with positioning accuracy of 0.005mm and speed shaking of ± 0.05mm/s. The coated guide wire can be wound with good uniformity without damaging the coating, and the spring distance and density of guide wire can be adjusted, which is very successful in the application field of high-precision linear drive
