TRAINING FACILITY LOADING CONTROL BY MRF DAMPER
Keywords:magnetorheological fluid, mechatronics, subpixels, tensometric, computerise
AbstractFrom the scientific and technical point of view it is very important to develop training equipment which would allow us to exercise and perform tests individually according to the needs of each user and control, and manage the entire training process. The paper analyses the possibilities to stabilize the inertial load in the simulator of the weight stack machine and control it by means of the MRF damper. The test bench was designed allowing measurement of the resistance forces and kinematic parameters of various parts of the system (weights, stabiliser, handle). The preliminary results of experimental investigations proved the effectiveness of the developed MRF damper.
