Eccentricity control device

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4365324.

Eccentricity control apparatus is provided in a system for optically recording and reading information on a rotating disc medium. The information may be recorded on concentric or spiral tracks. The eccentricity control apparatus includes a detector for detecting track crossings as an optical scanning head scans the disc surface. The detector provides pulses representative of track crossings. The number of pulses in a once-around is representative of the amplitude of an eccentricity control signal. The angle measured between a once-around pulse and a minimum pulse rate of the track crossings indicates the phase of the error. An eccentricity error signal which is generated by suitable circuitry is applied to affect the manner in which the optical scanning head scans the disc surface such that number of track crossings is reduced.
