Abstract

A device for processing rotation-dependent measured values includes a data converter, a sequencing control, and an output interface. Series of measured values, which are a function of the rotation of a shaft and of which at least one is an angle value that indicates the angular position of the shaft, are conveyable to the data converter at constant time intervals of a measuring interval. The data converter is adapted to subdivide a rotation of the shaft into sectors and, using one of the angle values as a reference angle value, to allocate received measured values to a sector, and per rotation of the shaft, to ascertain for each series of measured values precisely one result value for each sector. The result values are able to be output to the output interface.

Abstract

The invention relates to a measuring device which comprises a first assembly (1) and a second assembly (2), wherein the assemblies (1, 2) are arranged so as to be rotatable relative to one another about an axis (R). The first assembly (1) comprises a scanning component (1.1; 1.1') which has a first substrate (1.11), and the second assembly (2) comprises a dial component (2.1) which has a second substrate (2.11) and an angular scale (2.13), and therefore a relative angular position between the first assembly (1) and the second assembly (2) can be determined by the measuring device. The measuring device also comprises a passive sensor assembly (1.12; 2.12) which has conductor-track structures (1.121, 1.122, 1.123, 1.124; 2.121, 2.122, 2.123, 2.124). The conductor-track structures (1.121, 1.122, 1.123, 1.124; 2.121) are attached to the scanning component (1.1; 1.1') by additive construction on the first substrate (1.11), and so a torsional load of the first substrate (1.11) about the axis (R) can be determined by the sensor assembly (1.12). Alternatively, the conductor-track structures (2.121, 2.122, 2.123, 2.124) are attached to the dial component (2.1) by additive construction on the second substrate (2.11), and so a torsional load of the second substrate (2.11) about the axis (R) can be determined by the sensor assembly (2.12).

Abstract

The present invention relates to a device (30) for synchronous serial data transmission over a differential data channel (62) and a differential clock channel (60). The device has an interface controller (40) having a clock generator (44) and a data controller (42), and a clock transmitting component (50) and a data receiving component (54), wherein a transmitting clock signal (CLK_S) can be generated by the clock generator (44), which transmitting clock signal comprises a clock pulse sequence (TP) having a period duration (T) during a data transmission cycle; the transmitting clock signal (CLK_S) is supplied to the clock transmitting component (50), which converts it to a differential clock signal (C+, C-) for output via the clock channel (60); a differential data signal (D+, D-) arriving via the differential data channel (62) is supplied to the data receiver component (54), which converts it to a data signal (DT) and supplies it to the data controller (42); and the transmitting clock signal (CLK_S) is supplied to the data controller (42) for synchronization of the reading of the data signal (DT). The clock generator (44) is suitably designed, in the case of data transmission cycles in a dynamic operating state (DYN), to adjust the duration of the first clock phase (TH1) of the first clock period (T1) of the clock pulse sequence (TP) to be longer than the first clock phase (TH) of the following clock periods and to be shorter than a duration required for reaching the maximum differential voltage (UDmax) of the clock transmitting component (50). The invention furthermore relates to a method for synchronous serial data transmission.

Abstract

In an optical position-measuring device for acquiring the rotational angle between two objects that are rotationally moveable relative to each other, a grating measuring standard rotating about an axis of rotation is arranged as a reflection grating. Position information both about an azimuthal rotary movement about the axis of rotation and about a radial displacement of the grating measuring standard is able to be obtained. At least one detection unit is used for scanning the rotating grating measuring standard in order to determine the azimuthal rotational angle as well as a radial displacement of the grating measuring standard. The neutral pivot points of the scanning of the grating measuring standard for the determination of the rotational angle and the displacement are situated in the same plane, with this plane being situated in parallel with the grating measuring standard. The neutral pivot point denotes the particular location about which the grating measuring standard or the detection unit is able to be tilted without a position offset.

Abstract

An optical position-measuring device for sensing a relative position of two objects, each object being connected to a grating. The optical position-measuring device is configured such that, at one of the gratings, an illumination beam emitted from a light source is split into two sub-beams which, in respective scanning beam paths following the splitting, experience different polarization-optical effects and recombine at one of the gratings. After the differently polarized sub-beams are recombined, a plurality of phase-shifted, displacement-dependent scanning signals are generatable from a resulting signal beam in a detection unit. No separate polarization-optical components are disposed in the scanning beam paths of the sub-beams between splitting and recombination. At least one of the gratings is configured as a polarization grating configured to produce the different polarization-optical effects and such that diffraction orders with different polarization states are produced at each point of incidence on the polarization grating.
