Angle (Arch) Movements – Overview
The Angles or Arches are the movements that pivot the blade motors to angle. That is done with a semi circular arch, 50-2 chain gearbox, motor and encoder. The gearbox for the angle movement is a hollow shaft gearbox with a shaft and sprocket to drive the number 50-2 chain around the arch. The other end of the shaft contains the encoder which tracks the position on the angle movement.
The angle movements have hard end stops which are the maximum and minimum of the movement. They have limits that can be used to get rough calibration. The maximum stop and minimum stop position are set from the factory and can be verified in the settings of each movement.
