Title (EN) ACTUATOR APPARATUS WITH CONTROL DEVICE
(FR) APPAREIL ACTIONNEUR ÉQUIPÉ D'UN DISPOSITIF DE COMMANDE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to an actuator apparatus (1) for generating the motion of a tool, in particular for the work on biological cell material, which provides at least one electrically controlled actuator element (3), a motion section (3a), at which a tool can be arranged and which is linked to the at least one actuator element, an electrical control device (11) for controlling the at least one actuator element, an electrical measurement device (12), which is configured to perform a measuring method for measuring at least one electrical capacitance quantity of the at least one actuator element, wherein the capacitance quantity is usable to provide information on the status of the actuator apparatus. Further, a corresponding method for obtaining and utilizing said information on the actuator apparatus is provided.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un appareil actionneur (1) destiné à produire le mouvement d'un outil, en particulier pour travailler sur une matière de cellule biologique, qui comprend au moins un élément d'actionneur (3) commandé électriquement, une section de mouvement (3a), à laquelle un outil peut être agencé et qui est reliée à l'élément actionneur ou aux éléments actionneurs, un dispositif de commande électrique (11) destiné à commander le ou les éléments actionneurs, un dispositif de mesure électrique (12) qui est conçu pour exécuter un processus de mesure pour mesurer au moins une quantité de capacité électrique du ou des éléments actionneurs, la quantité de capacité pouvant être utilisée pour fournir une information sur l'état de l'appareil actionneur. Par ailleurs, un procédé correspondant pour obtenir à utiliser ladite information sur l'appareil actionneur est décrit.
