Hi. I’d like to replace a pneumatic cylinder with force feedback control (from a load cell) with an all-electric machine. It looks like this component is perfect:
Glideforce LACT6-500APL Industrial-Duty Linear Actuator with Acme Drive and Feedback: 250kgf, 6" Stroke (5.5" Usable), 0.66"/s, 12V
The docs recommend a Jrk G2 motor controller to manage the feedback control. Sounds good.
Sorry if this sounds lazy, but is there a complete application of something similar that I can use as a starting point? I’ve been successful before starting with something complete and similar and modifying it; but I can’t design a system from scratch.
Do you know of a complete example project that I can use a starting point?
I just don’t know where to start with:
- Power supply, regulator, decoupling, fuses
- Mechanical mounting
- Control buttons and display
- Box for the controller and other electronics
- Safety design
