The Haydon™ line of dual motion actuators provides independent linear and rotary motion from a compact package. The actuators are based on unique, patent pending designs and incorporate Haydon Kerk Motion Solutions proven motor technology. These units simplify product development by replacing what would otherwise be far more bulky and complex mechanisms. Another feature of this design is to provide an electric motor in which linear and rotary motions are controllable independently of one another.
A limitless number of operating parameters are offered allowing each device to be custom manufactured according to customer specific application requirements. For a rotary/linear motor, it is desirable that the linear and rotary motions be controllable independently of one another. These devices can be run using a standard two axis stepper motor driver. Performance can be enhanced using chopper and/or microstepping drives.
Results: Rotary Function - Bipolar - 100% Duty Cycle
Ramping can increase the performance of a motor either by increasing the top speed or getting a heavier load accelerated up to speed faster. Also, deceleration can be used to stop the motor without overshoot.
Note: All chopper drive curves were created with a 5 volt motor and a 40 volt power supply.
