Typical demagnetization results As delivered - back emf equals 9.2 Take out magnets and replace- back emf goes to 8.2 Take out magnets and press like poles together until they touch- back emf drops to 6.2 or so. So we see the potential torque loss due to dissassembly. Careful disassembly gives only a 157 torque loss, but fooling around results in up to 50% torque loss. A good test for fully charged globe motor magnets is to see if it cogs. If it does, then the magnets are at least 75% charged. If it doesnt, then you have weak magnets. Placing the poles of a globe motor between the poles of a large alnico magnet seems to properly recharge the magnets. As an example- recharging the motor above in this manner yeilded a back emf of 9.6. Higher than the original number- but no doubt, when put to use, the magnets can be expected to discharge a bit in the presence of demagentizing armature current induced fields. As a furthur note- testing the motor with the large charging magnet between the poles gives an emf of over 15. ARM PROGRAMS TO create a macro type DEFINE MACRONAME THEN THE INSTRUCTIONS TERMINATE WITH A BLANK LINE TO EXECUTE, TYPE MACRONAME DO TO SAVE A FILE TYPE BEGIN FILENAME MACRONAME MACROCNAME END TO EXECUTE A FILE TYPE DO FILENAME ARM SERVO PROGRAM DETAILS Lou's programs are under FAIL - Look under Arm Spacewar code- Line numbers 1554 to 1563 Here the trajectory coefficients are taken from the list, which contains 5 coefs. (a4 to a0 , the total trajectory time in microseconds, and an address of the next trajectory coef. list.) ELL1: MOVE AC,A4(I) Loads AC with A4 coef. of Ith joint MUL AC,MQ Multiplies A4 by time coef (<1), a 36 bit word) ADD AC,A3(I) Adds the A3 coef. to AC (18 bits long) MUL AC,MQ Multiplies AC by time coef. All of these operations are fixed point operations. ADD AC,A0(I) Adds last coef. to AC, so now we have (((A4)t)+A3)t+A2)t+A1)t+A0 which is a normal quartic. Lou says that most trajectories are now cubics which means that the A4 term is zero. This is a fixed point equation. XOR,AC,SC(1) Adjust the contents of the accumulator by the Sign Factor Which means change the sign if required. FSC AC,0 Convert contents of AC to floating point. The above sequence is done for each joint, each jiffy. All that changes is the joint number (I) and the time t, which is in microseconds, and counts down the trajectory length time stored in menory. Thus, this is how a typical expansion takes place. Gearing notes Joint 3 on M.I.T. arm. Motor pinion has 11 teeth and is enlarged to .1873 O.D. This is larger than the standard diameter of .180 but smalller than the normal enlarged pinion OD of .190 dia. Thus, if we use a stock idler gear, the center distances must be moved out by .0037 inches or so. These numbers are subject to correction. The contact ratio of a standard mesh is and that of this proposed mesh is . If we kept the gearing at 13 tooth pinion, the contact ratio would be .
