I'm looking for what seems to be a basic element. I'm looking for a mechanical rotational to translational converter with two inputs on either side.
That is, I'm looking for a block that does not presume either input is referenced to ground.
There are some blocks that are close, but don't really do what I want.
- "Simscape/Foundation Library/Mechanical/Mechanisms/Lever" gives me the effect I want on the mechanical end, but has no rotational ports.
- "Simscape/Foundation Library/Mechanical/Mechanisms/Wheel and Axle" converts a single translational input to a single rotational input assuming both sides are referenced to ground. In my case both sides are not referenced to ground.
- "Simscape/Foundation Library/Electrical/Electrical Elements/Rotational Electromechanical Converter" does almost what I want, but is between mechanical rotational and electrical instead of mechanical translational.
I'm sure there is a way to "build" my own converter, but it seems like such a fundamental component that it should exist already.
