Synchronous Controllers (Electronic Shaft or Gearbox) for Synchronization of Speed, Events, Positions, Print Marks Control
All synchronization controllers shown on this site operate according to the Master- Slave principle. Where the Master can freely move with any motion profile under control of any remote speed reference, the synchronizer will control one or several Slaves to exactly follow the Master motion in terms of position and speed.
The control is based on incremental position feedback by means of encoders on both sides. Many applications just use a measuring wheel with encoder instead of a Master drive. It is possible to preset every speed or gear ratio by means of adjustable impulse scaling factors.
All units can accept marker pulses from the encoders and from remote proximity switches or photocells, to automatically produce the correct position with pitch or cycle related applications. motrona synchronous controllers can operate with any kind of speed variable drives (AC inverter, DC, Servo or hydraulic type) that follow to a ±10 V speed reference signal. The extremely fast position control loop provides excellent performance even with highly dynamic applications.
