An Action Reversible Mechanism with Piezoelectric Actuator
At present, the explosion isolator of the fuze safety system using stepping motor or based on the slider continuation move realized safe state restorability, but the former is restricted by the volume of stepping motor, however, the stepping motor is vulnerable to electromagnetic interference; the latter structure is complex, with several independent components, not compact and irreversible. In view of this, an action reversible mechanism based on piezoelectric actuator is proposed, realizing the fuze safety system reversibility. The principle of the piezoelectric actuator is described and the drive mechanism is designed. The feasibility is analysed. The study shows that the mechanism has the certain practical value for compact structure, small volume and reliable actuation.
