2103C Series Three Axis Position and Rate Table System


The 2103C Series consists of Ideal Aerosmith’s smallest three axis table systems. They are designed to provide position, rate and acceleration stimuli for the development and/or production testing of inertial sensors or systems, or for small antenna/optics stabilization systems.

Accurate and reliable motion control of the 2103C Series test table is achieved with a servo-controlled system consisting of direct-drive DC torque motors, precision optical encoders, and the Ideal Aerosmith AERO 3500 Commander Controller. Positions, rates, and accelerations are commanded locally from the front panel keypad or remotely through the computer interface. 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 three axis table systems. Almost every system that Ideal Aerosmith manufactures can be customized to meet a customer’s specific requirements.
