Description

Voice coil motor test device

The present invention relates to the field of voice coil motors, and more particularly to a test apparatus for life testing of a voice coil motor.

The voice coil motor has the advantages of small size, low power consumption and low price, and is suitable as an actuator in electronic products (such as digital cameras, mobile phones, digital video cameras, etc.) (see Design of a voice coil motor used in the focusing). System of a digital video camera, Magnetics, IEEE Transactions on Volume 41, Issue 10, Oct. 2005 Page(s): 3979-3981).

A common voice coil motor mainly includes a fixing frame and a loading tube and at least one elastic piece movably mounted in the fixing frame. The cartridge is used to mount a lens barrel or a focusing lens group or a zoom lens group, and the elastic piece is used to protect the voice coil motor. When energized, the voice coil motor drives the cartridge to change the distance between the lens barrel or the focus lens group or the zoom lens group and the image sensor, thereby achieving focus or zoom.

When the number of reciprocating movements of the loading cylinder relative to the fixing frame reaches a certain limit value, the voice coil is aging due to the glue in the voice coil motor, or the friction damage of the components in the voice coil motor caused by the vibration is loose, and the like. The motor will fail and stop moving to reach its ultimate life. However, if the assembly is not standardized or the design is wrong, the number of reciprocating movements of the cartridge relative to the holder cannot reach a preset number, which is far below the preset limit life, which is a non-conforming product. Therefore, a life test of the voice coil motor is required to determine whether the batch assembled voice coil motor can reach a preset exercise life. If you can't, you can find the cause and make improvements. However, the existing voice coil motor generally uses an electrode that connects a power source to the voice coil motor to test the voice coil motor one by one. Since the life test of the voice coil motor lasts for a long time, when the number of samples is large, the means of testing one by one seriously affects the test progress and extends the development and production cycle. In addition, the power supply wire is connected to the voice coil motor one by one, and the wire needs to be repeatedly disconnected, which is cumbersome to operate and wastes time and manpower.
