Building a Magnetic Track Guided AGV

Posted by on in Featured Comments

An automated guided vehicle (AGV) can be built with as little as two Roboteq components: An MGS1600 magnetic guide sensor, and one of the many dual channel motor controllers available in Roboteq’s catalog. This application note will use a Roboteq MDC2230 dual channel controller, however the techniques described are identical for all other controller models.

Drive-by-wire or teleoperated systems feel very unnatural to use because they lack the natural feedback the operator receives when turning a steering, presuring an object in his or her hands, or pressing on a pedal. This lack of feedback is uncomfortable in many situations, to outright dangerous in others. Yet force feedback is reasonably simple to implement. Theory of Operation Force feedba...

Introduction Using a simple tension sensor - such as a spring and potentiometer - Roboteq controllers can be used to create electromechanical systems that produce constant pulling or pushing force. These techniques depart from traditional motion control and enable a whole array of innovative force amplification and stabilization applications. Theory of Operation The proposed technique uses the ...

Understanding Regeneration

Posted by on in Featured Comments

Motors become generators when forced to turn while no or reduced power is applied. This phenomenon brings interesting benefits in terms of energy efficiency but it also introduces challenges in system design. Understanding the physics and implications of regeneration is critical in many applications.
