Information

This information is part of the Modelica Standard Library maintained by the Modelica Association.

This basic sensor is aimed to be used within advanced sensors where the cut-force acting between the two frames is determined to which this model is connected. This cut-force is provided at the output signal connector force (= frame_a.f). If parameter positiveSign = false, the negative cut-force is provided (= frame_b.f).

Via parameter resolveInFrame it is defined in which frame the force vector is resolved:

resolveInFrame =
Types.ResolveInFrameA.
Meaning
world Resolve vector in world frame
frame_a Resolve vector in frame_a
frame_resolve Resolve vector in frame_resolve

In this basic sensor model, the connector frame_resolve is always enabled and must be connected. If resolveInFrame = Types.ResolveInFrameA.frame_resolve, the vector force is resolved in the frame to which frame_resolve is connected.

In the following figure the animation of a CutForce sensor is shown. The dark blue coordinate system is frame_b, and the green arrow is the cut force acting at frame_b and with negative sign at frame_a.
