The invention relates to the field of measurements, in particular for controlling the position of crane tracks in terms mainly of bridge cranes.

It is known device [1] for measuring linear dimensions, containing a measuring element mounted on one end of the clamping element and the tensioning device mounted on the other end of the measuring element made in the form of the slide and cooperating spring along the axis of the sleeve, provided with clamping elements.

The disadvantage of this device is that it does not provide an accurate determination of distances, mainly controlling the position of crane tracks cranes in the plan. This is due to the fact that the measuring element is made of a hard and when determining distances over long spans of its deflection will result in significant measurement errors. In addition, the known device does not allow measurement while moving the crane.

The closest in technical essence to salve points, containing at least one flexible string of a certain length, the clamping elements attached to the ends of the yarn and the reference node.

The disadvantage of this device is the low control accuracy, the inconvenience of operation, the impossibility of writing reading reading site. This is due to the complexity of the visual readings of the reference node when using the unit at high altitudes, and lack of equipment for recording the results of measurements when moving the crane.

Comparative analysis of the prototype shows that the inventive device further comprises elastic elements for connection of the ends of the flexible strands with the corresponding clamping elements, one of which has a readout node, made in the form of an optoelectronic transducer on the housing, which is rigidly mounted rack with swivel hanging on the reflector, optically associated with the optoelectronic transducer and connected by means of thrust with one of the elastic elements.

In addition, the optoelectronic Converter comprises a directional radiation and optically connected through the system focus to the first input of the processing unit is on, the reflector is made in the form of an isosceles mirror prism of optical glass having a transparent base, which is facing the optoelectronic Converter and the mirror face is inclined to the base at an angle of 45oC.

In addition, the processing unit contains connected in series camera, the preprocessing block information block input computing unit and output unit, and output unit output connected to the input of the unit recording information.

Thus, the proposed device meets the criterion of "novelty".

A comparison of the proposed device with other technical solutions shows that all the elements of the device are widely known. However, their use in this respect to determine the distance between the two located on the same level points, mainly for controlling the position of crane tracks cranes in the plan, leads to increased accuracy and reduced time control.

Increasing the accuracy of determining the distance between two located on the same level points, mainly for controlling the position of crane tracks cranes in the plan is provided PR is edenia reflected from isosceles mirror reflector of the beam, when using cameras with an accuracy equal to its resolution. In addition, the improved accuracy is achieved by combining optoelectronic transducer directional radiation and optically linked via the focusing system to the first input of the processing unit information screen, and the output processing unit connected to the input of the recording unit information that allows the use of a reflector made in the form of an isosceles mirror prism of optical glass having a transparent base, which is facing the optoelectronic Converter and the mirror face is inclined to the base at an angle of 45oC.

The reduction of the process time of the control distance in plan is provided as a consequence of the use in optoelectronic Converter of the processing unit, which contains connected in series camera, the preprocessing block information block input computing unit and output unit, and output unit output connected to the input of the recording unit information that allows you to combine process control the distance and record the results with the movement of the clamping elements of the device. In addition, Aline.

All the above allows to conclude that the technical solutions according to the criterion of "significant differences".

In Fig. 1 shows a diagram of the device for determining the distance between two located on the same level points, mainly for controlling the position of crane tracks cranes in plan; Fig.2 is a diagram illustrating the operation of the device using prismatic mirror reflector of Fig. 3 is a diagram of an optoelectronic transducer; Fig. 4 is a block circuit pre-processing of Fig. 5 is a wiring diagram of thrust to the optical reflector and the elastic element of Fig. 6 is a variant of the attachment of the elastic elements to the clamping.

The device (Fig. 1) consists of two clamping members 1 and 2, the elastic elements 5 and 6 in the form of a cylindrical tension springs, which are connected with the ends of the flexible strands 7 of a certain length and through the brackets 3 and 4 with the corresponding clamping elements. On the clamping element 1 is the reference node in the form of optoelectronic Converter 8, the rack 9 which is hinged reflector 10 in the form of an isosceles mirror prism, which, in turn, is connected by a thrust 11 with the spring 5. Opticheskie axis of the radiation detector intersects the plane 13 of the second mirror faces of the prism.

The device during its use for control of crane tracks cranes operates as follows. Mark crane path control points. The clamping members 1 and 2 mounted on a rail crane path 14 in the place in which the distance between the vertical axes of the rails is known, and with tie rods 15 and 16 are connected to a bridge crane 17. By means of a spring 6 nut 18 to produce the tension of the flexible strands 7 so that the beam 19 (Fig. 3) directional radiation 20 passed through the plane 12 of the prism 10 and reflected from the vertical edge 13 of the beam 21 from shining onto the screen 22. The final configuration produced by an adjusting screw 23 (Fig. 5) so that the spot position of the reflected beam was closest to the center of the screen. After you configure the device before the movement in the processing unit records the position of the spot of the reflected beam (zero counts). When the movement of the crane on the crane track in the deviations of the latter from the base position in the plane is a compression or tension spring 5, which is converted by means of thrust 11 in angular displacement prismatic reflector hinged to the rack 9. Displacement of one or the other, or is the motor 10 relative to the suspension point on the angle Q, that, in turn, leads to the deviation of the reflected beam 21 at the same angle Q, i.e., the deviation H, the reflected beam will be proportional to the amount of displacement H, and can be determined from the relation

H = RK/H (1) ,

where

R is the distance between the vertical end surface of the optoelectronic transducer and a vertical axis passing through the suspension point of the reflector; K is the size of the prism holder.

In the marked points of the crane path record of the measurement results. When recording the deviation of H from the center of the screen spot of the reflected beam when there is a displacement of the crane path from the basic provisions in the plan.

The processing unit calculates the distance of the crane path plan based

L = aH (2)

where a is the known distance in the initial measurement.

The calculated values are recorded in the memory unit recording information.

The processing unit consists of a camera 24, block 25 pre-processing unit 26 digital input unit 29 of the recording information, and the first, second and third outputs of the cameras are connected to first, second and third whadda information the output of which is connected to the input of the computing unit, and its output to the input block output data, the output unit to output information from the input unit recording information.

The processing unit operates as follows. The position of the light spot on the screen 22 is read by the camera and the optical axis of the camera is always perpendicular to the plane of the screen and passes through its center. At the outputs of the camera signals are formed on the first fk - framing on the second fc - horizontal sync and on the third fs - values of the video signal. These signals are fed to first, second and third inputs of the block preprocessing information. In the block, the video signal is converted into digital signals X0, X1, X2,..., Xn, each of which consists of one-bit code signal read from the line X0, and a multi-bit code address lines X1, X2,..., Xn. The signal X0 is set to "0" if the line was not of high value, and "1" if it was.

At the input of the preprocessing block information code is formed of Ajthe sum of line numbers within which was the output signal fs, which is consistent with the level of logical units, and code Bjthe number of rows in the pre is the time, appropriate personnel sync fk. These codes through the block input is entered into the computing device, where the calculated coordinate of Xjcenter of the light spot on the screen within the frame:

Xj= Aj/Bj< / BR>
These values of Xjequal to H, in the data block is converted into values of H and distance dependency (1) and (2) and through the output unit 28 are recorded in the memory unit 29 writes the cue point of the crane track.

The preprocessing block information (Fig. 4) consists of a counter 30, a threshold element 31, the trigger 32, the first block diagrams And 33, a second counter 34 which is accumulating adder 35 and second 36 and third blocks 37 And schemes, and the first output - output frame synchronization unit 24 (camera) is connected to the outputs of the installation in the "0" of the first and second counters, accumulating adder and common inputs of the second and third inputs of the circuits And the second input - output horizontal synchronization unit 24 is connected to the even-numbered input of the first counter and the first input of the trigger, the output of which is connected to the even-numbered input of the second counter, the parallel outputs of the second counter connected to inputs of the second unit circuits And parallel outputs what about the adder, and its outputs with the inputs of the second unit circuits And the outputs of the second and third blocks of circuits And connected to the first input block input.

The unit works as follows. The vertical synchronizing signal sets the counters 30 and 34 in the zero state, the signal line synchronization submitted to the counting input of the counter 30 will generate for each row number in binary code and sets the trigger is in state "0". The video signal from the third output of the camera unit 24, is quantized to eight levels is input to the threshold element, the threshold is chosen so that weak signals caused by lateral illumination of the lens was not passed to the input of the trigger. Then in the presence of the lit area within row (scan line) at the output of the threshold element is formed by a logical signal "1", this signal is fed to the counting input of the counter 34, which will be formed code the number of rows, within which was the light spot from the screen.

Simultaneously, the signal of logic "1" trigger is fed to the common input of the first unit circuits And, on the second inputs of the first input circuits And whose output will be successively formed codes line numbers, soot on "0" signal frame synchronization. In the adder within the frame will be generated code amount line numbers corresponding to the illuminated area of the screen (Ajand the counter 34 - code the number of rows of Bjcorresponding to the illuminated area of the screen.

Moreover, depending on the conditions of propagation of radiation quantum generator values Ajand Bjmay be different. But their ratio, calculated in block 27 will correspond to the center of the field of illumination of the screen. The signal from the accumulating adder of the second counter through the second and third block diagrams And signal the vertical scan is read at the first input block input.

The entire device is implemented on standard elements. A source of monochromatic directional radiation - quantum generator LH - 72-1, the input block is a standard device 15 KA - 60/8-0/0, computing unit 15 W-16-012, the output device "-2" 15 KC-180-032, the unit recording information - chip non-volatile memory 16-01 PP1 or 573 PN 10.

SUBSTANCE: method involves generation of laser radiation which is directed onto the measured object. Radiation reflected from the surface of the object is "collected" by a condenser, one focus of which lies on the surface of the object, and the other lies on the sensitive area of a photodiode. The time scale for measuring time instants is created by oscillations of a main generator. The laser is launched periodically, in multiples of the period of the main generator. The response signal of the photodiode is used to measure its position on the time scale in a selected period for launching the laser. For this purpose, the control voltage of a vernier generator is measured, as a result of which the vernier generator changes generation frequency. Consequently, the slope of the linear function of mutual phase shift of two generators. The time instant for changing the frequency of the vernier generator is determined analytically as the projection on the time axis of the point of intersection of linear functions of mutual phase shift of two generators, calculated before and after changing the control voltage. Each of the two parametres of the linear functions is calculated through accumulation and analysis of whole numbers of periods of the main generator, which are noted by changing the phase difference of the shift function, the period of the main generator which is noted by changing the phase difference. This period is "spanned" by the period of the vernier generator if it exceeds the period of the main generator, or the period of the vernier generator "fits" inside the period of the main generator if it less than the period of the latter. Processing of the formed array of numbers in order to obtain both parametres of the linear function of mutual phase shift of two generators is carried out using the theory of non-Euclidean continued fraction difference.

EFFECT: wider field of use.
