THE CONTROL OF FRICTION CLUTCHES UNDER MANOEUVERING CONDITIONS
The friction clutch, a very simple and compact device, has suffered in the past from a 'lack of control' when considered for use in speed-sensitive applications. Electronic instrumentation techniques, used to remedy this deficiency, have resulted in compact, robust, non-contact, easily adjusted sensor packages which can be fitted to virtually any make of clutch and provide firm, prescribed control. This paper discusses some typical applications and design methods used to quantify the control parameters required.
