Arduino Firmware to Control Galvanometer Drivers

Join me after the break for a survey of piezo, magnetostrictive, magnetorheological, voice coils, galvonometers, and other devices. Magnetostriction is the tendency of a material to change shape under a magnetic field.

When extending slowing a jaw rotates a screw, but if the piezo stack is compressed quickly the gzlvo will not return.

Before clean electrical amplification became possible, this was the best means of measuring tiny differences in current. However they do have niche applications. When we’d drive galvo motors from the DAC-audio-ports of the Duet, would talvo need a stereo amplifier? Writing code to adduino a raster scan to make a rudimentary TV style screen Making an oscilloscope or ECG Using stepper motors rather than servos.

You’ll be limited in resolution, but with microstepping, it just might work!

Description UV laser pens leave a luminescent trail when shone on glow-in-the-dark material. What “step” galco do the galvo axes need to be driven at? Its chemistry produces a voltage stable enough to be used for meter calibration.

In any case, their mechanisms are interesting in their own right! Electrostatic motors While magnetic motors operate through the attraction and repulsion of magnetic fields, electrostatic motors exploit the attraction and repulsion of electric change to galvoo motion.

Oh, and did we mention the motor is from a floppy disk drive? Mirror galvanometers were originally developed in the 17th century to precisely measure very small changes in current. Piezo stacks are ideal here though hackers have also used cheap buzzers! The SAM4 processors used in the Duets have 2 on-chip DACs, so I have been wondering whether they could be used to drive galvos via a couple of op amps.

I don’t think any of them are particularly laser-cutter specific though. I’ll have a go with he stepper motors next as they are here on my bench but ultimately I’d like galbo try galvos. These days ammeters are far more sensitive of course, but the mirror galvanometer has found more entertaining applications:.

I went with servos because of their easy availability. For some applications however resolution arvuino of primary interest rather than range of travel. The viewer is invited to consider the importance of measurement to civilization, most notably those fundamental measurements of length, mass, and time. By inverting the process extending quickly, then compressing slowly the process is reversed and the screw is turned in the opposite direction. Click here to login. First, let me say that using mirrors is a step in the right direction compared to some projects we see here!

Maaan, char is hard. VDX, is 11 and a half bits 1 arduinp in sufficient resolution for the galvo? Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum. Modern systems can position a laser beam at kilohertz speeds, rendering startling images. The screw can therefore be made to rotate. With two of them, a laser beam may be steered in X and Y to form patterns.
