Synchro Transmitter-receiver SCL 110A
A synchro also known as selsyn and by other brand names is, in effect, a transformer whose primary-to-secondary coupling may be varied by physically changing the relative orientation of the two windings. Synchros are often used for measuring the angle of a rotating machine such as an antenna platform. In its general physical construction, it is much like an electric motor. The primary winding of the transformer, fixed to the rotor , is excited by an alternating current , which by electromagnetic induction , causes voltages to appear between the Y-connected secondary windings fixed at degrees to each other on the stator.
The voltages are measured and used to determine the angle of the rotor relative to the stator. Synchro systems were first used in the control system of the Panama Canal in the early s to transmit lock gate and valve stem positions, and water levels, to the control desks. Fire-control system designs developed during World War II used synchros extensively, to transmit angular information from guns and sights to an analog fire control computer , and to transmit the desired gun position back to the gun location.
Early systems just moved indicator dials, but with the advent of the amplidyne , as well as motor-driven high-powered hydraulic servos, the fire control system could directly control the positions of heavy guns. Smaller synchros are still used to remotely drive indicator gauges and as rotary position sensors for aircraft control surfaces, where the reliability of these rugged devices is needed.
Digital devices such as the rotary encoder have replaced synchros in most other applications. Selsyn motors were widely used in motion picture equipment to synchronize movie cameras and sound recording equipment, before the advent of crystal oscillators and microelectronics.
Large synchros were used on naval warships, such as destroyers, to operate the steering gear from the wheel on the bridge. In a torque system, a synchro will provide a low-power mechanical output sufficient to position an indicating device, actuate a sensitive switch or move light loads without power amplification. In simpler terms, a torque synchro system is a system in which the transmitted signal does the usable work.
In such a system, accuracy on the order of one degree is attainable. In a control system, a synchro will provide a voltage for conversion to torque through an amplifier and a servomotor. Control type synchros are used in applications that require large torques or high accuracy such as follow-up links and error detectors in servo, automatic control systems such as an autopilot system. In simpler terms, a control synchro system is a system in which the transmitted signal controls a source of power which does the usable work.
Quite often, one system will perform both torque and control functions. Individual units are designed for use in either torque or control systems. Some torque units can be used as control units, but control units cannot replace torque units. A synchro will fall into one of eight functional categories. They are as follows: .
On a practical level, synchros resemble motors, in that there is a rotor, stator, and a shaft. Ordinarily, slip rings and brushes connect the rotor to external power. A synchro transmitter's shaft is rotated by the mechanism that sends information, while the synchro receiver's shaft rotates a dial, or operates a light mechanical load.
Single and three-phase units are common in use, and will follow the other's rotation when connected properly. One transmitter can turn several receivers; if torque is a factor, the transmitter must be physically larger to source the additional current. In a motion picture interlock system, a large motor-driven distributor can drive as many as 20 machines, sound dubbers, footage counters, and projectors.
Synchros designed for terrestrial use tend to be driven at 50 or 60 hertz the mains frequency in most countries , while those for marine or aeronautical use tend to operate at hertz the frequency of the on-board electrical generator driven by the engines. These three are bussed to the other synchros in the system, and provide the power and information to align the shafts of all the receivers. Synchro transmitters and receivers must be powered by the same branch circuit, so to speak; the mains excitation voltage sources must match in voltage and phase.
The safest approach is to bus the five or six lines from transmitters and receivers at a common point. Different makes of selsyns, used in interlock systems, have different output voltages. In all cases, three-phase systems will handle more power and operate a bit more smoothly. Many synchros operate on 30 to 60 V AC also. Synchro transmitters are as described, but 50 and Hz synchro receivers require rotary dampers to keep their shafts from oscillating when not loaded as with dials or lightly loaded in high-accuracy applications.
A different type of receiver, called a control transformer CT , is part of a position servo that includes a servo amplifier and servo motor.
The motor is geared to the CT rotor, and when the transmitter's rotor moves, the servo motor turns the CT's rotor and the mechanical load to match the new position. CTs have high-impedance stators and draw much less current than ordinary synchro receivers when not correctly positioned.
Synchro transmitters can also feed synchro to digital converters, which provide a digital representation of the shaft angle. So called 'brushless synchros' use rotary transformers that have no magnetic interaction with the usual rotor and stator to feed power to the rotor. These transformers have stationary primaries, and rotating secondaries.
The secondary is somewhat like a spool wound with magnet wire, the axis of the spool concentric with the rotor's axis. The "spool" is the secondary winding's core, its flanges are the poles, and its coupling does not vary significantly with rotor position. The primary winding is similar, surrounded by its magnetic core, and its end pieces are like thick washers. The holes in those end pieces align with the rotating secondary poles.
For high accuracy in gun fire control and aerospace work, so called multi-speed synchro data links were used. For instance, a two-speed link had two transmitters, one rotating for one turn over the full range such as a gun's bearing , while the other rotated one turn for every 10 degrees of bearing.
The latter was called a speed synchro. Of course, the gear trains were made accordingly. At the receiver, the magnitude of the 1X channel's error determined whether the "fast" channel was to be used instead.
A small 1X error meant that the 36x channel's data was unambiguous. Once the receiver servo settled, the fine channel normally retained control. So called multispeed synchros have stators with many poles, so that their output voltages go through several cycles for one physical revolution. For two-speed systems, these do not require gearing between the shafts. Differential synchros are another category.
They have three-lead rotors and stators like the stator described above, and can be transmitters or receivers. A differential transmitter is connected between a synchro transmitter and a receiver, and its shaft's position adds to or subtracts from, depending upon definition the angle defined by the transmitter.
A differential receiver is connected between two transmitters, and shows the sum or difference, again as defined between the shaft positions of the two transmitters. There are synchro-like devices called transolvers, somewhat like differential synchros, but with three-lead rotors and four-lead stators. A resolver is similar to a synchro, but has a stator with four leads, the windings being 90 degrees apart physically instead of degrees.
Its rotor might be synchro-like, or have two sets of windings 90 degrees apart. Although a pair of resolvers could theoretically operate like a pair of synchros, resolvers are used for computation.
A special T-connected transformer arrangement invented by Scott "Scott T" interfaces between resolver and synchro data formats; it was invented to interconnect two-phase AC power with three-phase power, but can also be used for precision applications.

The synchros are extensively used in servomechanism for torque transmission, error detection and for adding and subtracting rotary angles. We will consider these applications one by one. The arrangement requires a control transmitter CX and a control receiver CR which acts as a torque receiver. As shown, the stator windings of the two synchros are connected together and their rotors are connected to the same single-phase ac supply. The rotor winding flux will induce an unbalanced set of three single-phase voltages in time phase with the rotor voltage in the CX stator phase windings which will circulate currents in the CR stator windings.
Explain what happens when the rotor leads on a synchro transmitter or receiver are reversed. State the purposes of differential synchros. Name the two.

These are also called as torque transmitter - receiver. The unit has one pair of transmitter - receiver synchro motors, powered by an isolated ac inbuilt supply. Complete unit is volt ac attenuated output on sockets for view of main operable.

В служебных помещениях ТРАНСТЕКСТА было черно как глубокой ночью. Минуту он наслаждался полной темнотой. Сверху хлестала вода, прямо как во время полночного шторма. Стратмор откинул голову назад, словно давая каплям возможность смыть с него вину. Я из тех, кто добивается своей цели.
Глаза ее не отрывались от экрана. Мозг лихорадочно искал какое-то другое объяснение, но не находил. Перед ее глазами было внезапно появившееся доказательство: Танкадо использовал меняющуюся последовательность для создания функции меняющегося открытого текста, а Хейл вступил с ним в сговор с целью свалить Агентство национальной безопасности. - Это н-не… - заикаясь, произнесла она вслух, - невероятно. И, словно возражая ей, в ее мозгу эхом прозвучали слова Хейла, сказанные чуть раньше: Танкадо не раз мне писал… Стратмор сильно рисковал, взяв меня в АНБ… Рано или поздно я отсюда слиняю.
Если бы я шутил… Я поставил его вчера в одиннадцать тридцать вечера.
