Advantages of Using Linear Actuators, Linear Slides and Linear Cylinders. When automated equipment is designed, various factors must be taken into consideration including the production line layout, installation environment, ease of maintenance, configuration of electrical wiring and control system, and so on. In this paper, the design, analysis, and test of a low cost, linear proof mass actuator for vibration control is presented. The actuator is based on a linear induction coil from a large computer disk drive. Such disk drives are readily available and provide the linear actuator, current feedback amplifier, and power supply for a highly effective, yet inexpensive, experimental laboratory actuator.

A typical PJM linear actuator consists of an electric motor, a gear (worm, spur or planetary), and a screw assembly. All these high-quality components make it easy to adjust, tilt, lift or pull an object using just the control units of the equipment. Although you can find cheap linear actuators anywhere in the world, buying a Power Jack Motion. Proof mass dampers are currently used in aircraft structures, but are not active, which introduce performance limitations. Proof Mass Actuators based on spring-mass structures are an interesting technique for active vibration control, but it is difficult to design them for operation below Hz, especially if high dynamic forces are required.

Linear actuators for direct current. Linear actuators for direct current with dynamic force up to N. These actuators include a range with supply voltages between V and can, depending on the type, be supplied with encoder, potentiomenter and adjustable limit Missing: Linear proof. A linear actuator is an actuator that creates motion in a straight line, in contrast to the circular motion of a conventional electric motor. Linear actuators are used in machine tools and industrial machinery, in computer peripherals such as disk drives and printers, in valves and dampers, and in many other places where linear motion is required.

The linear proof mass actuator (LPMA) was designed to attach to both a large space structure and a ground test model without modification. Previous designs lacked the power to perform in a terrestrial environment while other designs failed to produce the desired accelerations or frequency range for spaceflight applications.

In this paper, the design, analysis, and test of a low cost, linear proof mass actuator for vibration control is presented. The actuator is based on a linear induction coil from a large computer disk drive.

Such disk drives are readily available and. Proof Mass Actuator Configuration The proof mass actuator is part of an active dam-per encapsulated in an aluminum housing. The force generated by the proof mass actuator is co-axial to the housing. In Fig.4 a configuration of six active dampers attached to the steel frame is depicted.

Active Vibration Control Using Proof Mass (Inertial) Actuators Proof mass actuators (PMAs) are used to add tuned damping and tuned dynamic absorption to a test structure as well as the rear sub-frame of an all-wheel drive vehicle.

The choice of active vibration control strategy, with a PMAs as the actuator, depends on. Vibration Control Strategies for Proof-mass Actuators Article in Journal of Vibration and Control 13(12) December with 55 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Let a linear system given by A, B, and let gi, i = 1;;n, a set of complex elements (i.e. the desired poles of the closed-loop system). There exists a state feedback control u = Fx such that the poles of the closed-loop system are gi, i = 1;;nif and only if the pair (A;B) is controllable.

The linear behaviour of a proof-mass actuator can be closely described as a linear third-order model (Reynolds et al., ). That is, a low-pass element is added to a linear second-order system in order to account for the low-pass property exhibited by these : Iván M.

Díaz. OPTIMAL SIZING OF A PROOF-MASS ACTUATOR Jeffrey Scruggs* and Douglas K. Lindner† Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Virginia Tech Blacksburg, VA Abstract A proof-mass actuator is a linear machine which is mounted to a structure for the purpose of acting as a linear force actuator to damp out vibrations.

This book deals with LEAs that convert electric energy into controlled mechanical motion of limited travel and LEGs that transform mechanical energy into electric energy. Examples range from loudspeakers and microphones to magnetically levitated material transfer in ultraclean rooms. Much of the literature on linear actuators and generators covers the principles of operation and performance.

Actuator Sizing There are a few terms associated with electric actuators that require definition. Actuator Start-up Torqueis the amount of torque initially produced by an actuator when starting from rest.

Use start-up torque when sizing an electric actuator for a ball valve that is used for either on/off or throttling Size: KB. This lecture explains about: Proof Mass Actuator Application of Active DVA. Linear Actuator Sizing of a HIWIN Linear Actuator Step 1: Determine the load and speed Consider the operating environment, compare the specifications of various types of Hiwin Linear Actuators and select the most appropriate model.

Step 2: Stroke and retracted length sizing Consider the dimensions of the operating area and select the. A proof-mass actuator is an actuator for structural control that accelerates a proof-mass in linear motion imparting an equal and opposite force to the structure. A continuous motion of the proof-mass in one direction will eventually lead to a collision of the proof-mass with its stops, imparting shocks to the.

The use of linear proof-mass actuators for control has long been recognized as a useful technique for implementing this type of control scheme.

In addition to action as a control actuator, an alternate application of this device is as a force producer, where it acts essentially as a mechanical shaker.

A proof-mass actuator is a linear machine which is mounted to a structure for the purpose of acting as a linear force actuator to damp out vibrations in the structure, brought on by impulsive. EIM is known for its innovative electric valve actuators built for harsh industrial applications.
