## 一般說明

The Scotch Yoke Mechanism, "MYE", designed by EDIBON, is an example of slider-crank mechanism for converting the linear motion ofa slider into rotational motion or vice versa.

It is made of aluminum and consists of a rotary element, called crank, with a graduated disc. This element and a piston are linked to avertical pivot. The rotating motion of the crank generates the alternative linear motion of the piston.

It is a reversible system, if the piston generates the input motion (for example, a piston in a car's engine), the crank rotates.

The input angle is set on the ball bearing mounted crank disc and it is read on an angle measuring scale. A millimeter scale is fitted tomeasure the linear motion of the connecting rod.
