1573P Series Three Axis Position and Rate Table System


A 1573P Three Axis Motion Simulation Table System is used to test multi axis inertial systems such as Inertial Navigation Systems (INS), Attitude Heading Reference Systems (AHRS), flight control systems, Inertial Measurement Units (IMU), and platform stabilization devices.

Accurate and reliable motion control of the 1573P Series test table is achieved with a servo-controlled system consisting of direct-drive DC brushless motors, precision optical encoders, and a microprocessor that provides accurate and reliable motion control. The table can be operated from the AERO 4000™ Controller front panel for local control or through a computer interface for remote control. This test table system is designed for ease of operation and is programmed with the Ideal Aerosmith Table Language (ATL) for remote operation.

The Three Axis Product Selection Matrix allows you to easily compare the primary specifications for each of the two axis table systems. Almost every system that Ideal Aerosmith manufactures can be customized to meet a customer’s specific requirements.
