I have an actuator setup with a dual coil servo valve that i want to be able to control both coils individually for fault tolerance and monitoring. What would the best way to setup the axis to run off both coils? I thought about using gearing to run both axis off a single master, but i was confused that it might be easier to use programs to command two separate axis simultaneously? I’d also like to be able to setup some logic to detect and correct for coil failures.
I know that this is much simpler by setting up the coils to be wired in parallel, but unfortunately my requirements wont allow for that.
Has anybody done this before?
