I've attached a drawing
Well, for the crankshaft it would be 60 pulses per revolution. I would guess we could just base the camshaft pulses off of the crank's and say 60 also for the camshaft?
Please post the drawing as a JPG or PNG file and make it visible in your Post so we don't have to download it. See this Simple Image Posting GuideI can't see you getting very far with "I would guess". If you want to emulate a real engine then you need to know what is required....R
Since the crankshaft is comprised of a total of 60 equal spaces, each camshaft rotation should also be divisible by the same number of pulses or sections.
Let's accept that for the moment.Next question, the graph shows 5 cam pulses between each double pulse but the cam double pulse does not always happen at the same point in the crank revolution. What is generating the cam pulses?...R
Hi there. I'm not sure what you're referring to as the "double pulse", sorry. Could you possibly mark the area you're speaking of if possible?
It seems very obvious to me and it was a real PITA to make this image...R
Anyway, thanks for marking that because I would've never been able to make that "double pulse" connection with that area.
I'm struggling to understand your confusion. I realize that what I called a double pulse you might call a double trough - but I can't see that that would have prevented you identifying it.I'm only focusing on this because I feel that sorting out our common understanding might make it easier for us to communicate effectively in the future.And you have not explained why the double is not always in the same position relative to the crankshaft pulses.Another question. There is a short gap between the groups of crankshaft pulses. How many pulses are there between each gap and what is the duration of the gap in terms of the number of missing pulses?...R
Alrighty, so the "double" is in the same position in relation to the crankshaft pulse teeth for every rotation
Are you asking about the short low gaps between the camshaft pulses?
It is different on the top row of your image.
No. I specifically said "crankshaft pulses"
In that case we can think of there being 120 total individual "gaps" since there are 60 high pulses.
Just considering the line of crankshaft pulses on its own ...I see a lot of pulses close together and then a short gap and then another run of pulses close together. It is the length of the short gap between the runs of pulses that I am interested in. How many pulses are there in the run of pulses and how many are missing during the short gap between runs?I am assuming that the gap between the runs of pulses signifies the completion of 1 revolution - is that correct?...R
Crankshaft has 57 small teeth and 1 wide tooth equivalent to the width of 3 small teeth for a total of spacing for 60 small teeth.
Thank you. That's what I wanted to know.Supposing that you treat the first tooth after the wide tooth as Number1 - then at what tooth positions does each rising camshaft pulse occur?...R
