【0005】 [0005]

【作用】本発明によれば、設計試作を繰り返さなくても電磁駆動部材の可動部を実際の操作部材の操作部とみなしたシミュレータで、求めている操作感触が得られるかどうかをテストすることができ、そして試作品については、電磁駆動部材の可動部の位置と電磁駆動部材の駆動電流とから、操作部の位置と力との相関特性を知ることができるために、その試作品が設計時に要求したものと一致するかどうかの確認を簡便に行うことができる。 According to the present invention, in simulator regarded as the operation portion of the actual operating member movable portion of the electromagnetically driven member without repeating the design prototype, to test whether the operation feeling seeking to obtain can be, and for prototype, and a drive current position and the electromagnetic drive member of the movable portion of the electromagnetically driven member, in order to be able to know the correlation characteristics between the position and force of the operation unit, the prototype design the confirmation of whether or not to match those that requested at the time can be easily performed.

【0006】 [0006]

【実施例】以下本発明を図示の実施例に基づいて詳述すると、本発明においては、図1に示すように、要求仕様に基づいて設計を行い、この設計に基づくものがどのような操作感触を呈するかどうかをシミュレータでシミュレートする。 EXAMPLES In detail based on the illustrated embodiment of the present invention following, in the present invention, as shown in FIG. 1, to design based on the required specifications, any operation is based on this design to simulate whether or not exhibit a feeling in the simulator. この設計と感触シミュレーションとを繰り返すことで、要求仕様を満足するものを得られたならば、その時点の設計に基づいて試作品を製作し、次にこの試作品が設計段階で求めたものを満足しているかどうかのテストを行う。 By repeating the this design and feel simulation, if the resulting thereby satisfying the required specifications, to manufacture a prototype based on the design of the time, then the prototype ones determined in the design phase It made as to whether the test are satisfied. この時、試作品はシミュレート時において良好な操作感触となることが予め約束されていることから、このテストは実際上、設計通りのものができているかどうかの確認であり、このテスト結果がOKとなれば、試作は1度行うだけで量産に移ることができる。 At this time, since the prototype has been promised to be a good operation feeling at the time of the simulated in advance, this test in practice, is a confirmation of whether or not it is intended as designed, the test results if the OK, the prototype can be transferred to mass production only do once.

【0007】図2は上記シミュレートのためのシミュレータ1の一例を示している。 [0007] Figure 2 shows an example of a simulator 1 for the simulation. このシミュレータ1は、押し釦スイッチの押し釦をシミュレートするもので、永久磁石21とコイル20及び鉄心22からなるボイスコイルモータ型の電磁駆動部材2におけるコイル枠が、ベース10に設けた空気軸受11によって浮上支持されている可動部12に連結されており、可動部12の一端には位置センサー3が対向配置され、可動部12の他端には作用部13が設けられている。 The simulator 1 simulates the push button of the push button switch, the coil form in the electromagnetic driving member 2 of the voice coil motor type comprising a permanent magnet 21 and the coil 20 and the iron core 22, the air bearing provided on the base 10 11 is connected to the movable portion 12 which is floatingly supported by, at one end of the movable portion 12 is a position sensor 3 is disposed opposite, on the other end of the movable portion 12 is provided with the action portion 13. ここにおける電磁駆動部材2は、予め設定した図に示すようなストローク−力特性が得られるように電流駆動されるもので、位置センサー3による可動部12の位置情報は、この電磁駆動部材2の制御部にフィードバックされる。 Electromagnetically driven member 2 in this case, the stroke as shown in FIG previously set - those that force characteristic is a current driven so as to obtain the position information of the movable portion 12 by the position sensor 3, the electromagnetic driving member 2 It is fed back to the control unit.

【0008】シミュレートにあたっては、まず押し釦スイッチの押し釦の押し込みストロークとその反力との相関が、最適な操作感触が得られると思われる状態となるように、コンピュータを用いて設定値を入力する。 [0008] In the simulated first correlation between the pushing stroke of the push button of a push button switch and its reaction force, so that the state of optimal operation feeling appears to be obtained, the set value using a computer input. この入力操作は、図2に示すストローク−力曲線をマウス等の入力手段を用いてグラフを描くようにして入力できるようにしておくと、簡便で且つわかりやすいものとなる。 The input operation, the stroke shown in FIG. 2 - If you leave to be entered in the draw a graph using the input means such as a mouse the force curve, and that convenient and easy to understand.

【0009】上記シミュレータ1における電磁駆動部材2は、位置センサー3による可動部12の位置情報がフィードバックされる状態で電流駆動されて、作用部13 [0009] electromagnetically driven member 2 in the simulator 1, it is current driven in a state where the positional information of the movable portion 12 by the position sensor 3 is fed back, the action part 13
を指で押し込む時の反力を上記設計値通りのものとする。 The reaction force when pushed with a finger and that of the designed value. 従って、押し釦スイッチを試作しなくとも、その操作感触を探ることができるものであり、これが良くなければ、上記押し込みストロークと反力との設定を変更して、再度試すことを繰り返せばよい。 Thus, without a prototype push button switch, which you can explore the operation feeling, if not good this is, by changing the settings of the push stroke and the reaction force may be repeated to try again.

【0010】このようにして、最適操作感触を得られると目されるストローク−力曲線を得たならば、これを元に設計して押し釦スイッチを試作する。 [0010] In this way, the stroke is used when the eyes get the best operation feeling - Once obtained the power curve, the prototype of the push button switch to design it to the original. 試作した押し釦スイッチSWは図3に示すテスト装置1'を用いてその特性をテストする。 Push button switch SW the prototype to test the characteristics using the test device 1 'shown in FIG. このテスト装置1'は、上記シミュレータ1と同じ構造であり、異なるのは、可動部12の作用部13を押し釦スイッチSWの押し釦4に当接させることと、位置センサー3による位置検出値を基に電磁駆動部材2に流す電流を制御するPD制御回路Cを設けていることである。 The test device 1 'has the same structure as the simulator 1, different from, and be brought into contact with the acting portion 13 of the movable portion 12 to the push button 4 of the push button switch SW, the position detection value by the position sensor 3 the it is that there is provided a PD control circuit C for controlling the current supplied to the electromagnetic drive member 2 based. 位置センサー3の出力からストロークZを、電磁駆動部材2に流す電流から操作部4の押し込みに必要な力Fを得ることができ、図に示すような力−ストローク曲線をグラフ化表示することができる。 Stroke Z from the output of the position sensor 3, it is possible to obtain the force F required to push the operating section 4 from the current applied to the electromagnetic drive member 2, a force as shown in Fig - to view graphs the stroke curve it can. 設計時に設定した力−ストローク曲線と、試作品のテストで得た力−ストローク曲線とから、試作品をより客観的にとらえたテストを行うことができる。 Power was set at the time of design - and the stroke curve, the force obtained in the test of the prototype - from a stroke curve, can be performed more objectively captured test the prototype.

【0011】 [0011]

【発明の効果】以上のように本発明においては、設計試作を繰り返さなくても電磁駆動部材の可動部を実際の操作部材の操作部とみなしたシミュレータで、求めている操作感触が得られるかどうかをテストすることができ、 In the present invention as described above, according to the present invention, either in simulator regarded as the operation portion of the actual operating member movable portion of the electromagnetically driven member without repeating the design prototype is obtained operation feeling seeking it is possible to test whether,
そして試作品については、電磁駆動部材の可動部の位置と電磁駆動部材の駆動電流とから、操作部の位置と力との相関特性を知ることができるために、その試作品が設計時に要求したものかどうかの確認を簡便に行うことができるものであり、このために最適操作感触を持つものの開発に要する手間と時間を大幅に削減することができるものである。 And for prototype, and a drive current position and the electromagnetic drive member of the movable portion of the electromagnetically driven member, in order to be able to know the correlation characteristics between the position and force of the operation unit, the prototype has requested in the design are those that can be easily performed to confirm whether the one in which this for labor and time required for the development of those with the optimum operation feeling to be able to significantly reduce.
