Information about control of Actuator LACT2P-12V-20


I need to control the location of the LACT2P actuator with the H bridge (VNH2SP30 MD01B) and with an external controller.
The question is if can I use for this purpose the PID constants from the settings for jrk12V3 controller? If it isn’t good idea, so where can I get the transfer function of the actuator or some another information about it that will help me to build the simulation model and to tune the PID constants?

Thanks ahead,


The settings for our jrk controllers are fully documented, so you could certainly convert them for use in another system. However, the LACT actuators are very easy to control - they move slowly and do not have a lot of inertia - so it should be very easy for you to work out a good control system from scratch with just a little bit of fine tuning.
