2003HP Series Three-Axis Position and Rate Table System

The 2003HP Series Three-Axis Precision Positioning and Rate Table Systems provide precise angular position, rate and acceleration motion stimuli generally used for the development, production and/or qualification testing of precision inertial packages such as Inertial Measurement Units (IMU), Inertial Navigation Systems (INS), and Attitude Heading Reference Systems (AHRS) or seeker/tracker/stabilization devices for applications in the Aviation, Aerospace, Defense, Space, and Marine industries.

These tables are servo controlled and feature direct-drive DC brushless motors, precision optical encoders and a microprocessor-based controller that provides accurate and reliable motion control.

The table can be operated from the Aero 4000 Controller, front panel keypad or keyboard for local control or through a computer interface for remote control. This test table system is designed for ease of operation, yet allows for the performance of complex motion profiles.

The 2003HP Series Table Systems may be configured for limited rotation or with slip rings for unlimited axis rotation based on specific customer requirements. For limited rotation applications, these tables have wire wrap allowance that provides a cost effective alternative to slip rings. Wire wrap test tables are designed for high reliability, minimal electrical noise, and low maintenance.

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