In this chapter the code interpreter will be addressed. This is responsible for converting the part program and machine instructions into internal commands for NC. In order to understand the code interpreter the first thing is to understand the part program that is the input to the interpreter. After this, the structure and the functions of the code interpreter will be addressed in detail.
Unlike an encoder that generates an output signal in digital format, a resolver generates an output in analog format. A resolver consists of a stator, a rotor, and a rotation transformer. The coils of the stator and rotor are arranged to make the distribution of magnetic flux a sine wave with respect to the angle. A resolver has a similar structure to a motor and is insensitive to vibration and mechanical shock. 3 CNC Driving System Components 15 of signals and the miniaturization of the device are possible.
