1300 Manual Tilt and Turn Table

The 1300 Manual Tilt and Turn Table consists of two axes of motion, one for tilting and the other for rotating the table. The table can be tilted in either direction from 0° to 90°. To tilt the table, loosen the knob and rotate the tilt axis by hand to the desired position, then tighten the knob to hold in position. The tilt axis has detents every 15° for quick positioning, along with engraved marks at 0.5° increments.

 The table top rotates continuously through 360° in a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. The standard system comes with engraved marks at 45° increments on the table top, or you can choose the option of engraved marks at 1° increments. A spring-loaded steel ball engages detents in the bottom of the table top, locking it into position for quick setup. The detents locking the table top into position are located every 45°. Tables with optional engraved marks every 1° have detents every 15°. The tension is adjustable for the positioning detents on both the table top and the tilt axis.

A level platform is achieved by adjusting the leveling screws, which are mounted through the base plate. The leveling feet can compensate for as much as 5° of tilt.

The top surface of the table has six tapped holes for attaching the instrument package to be tested. Simply center the instrument package on the tabletop and secure it. Knurled mounting screws (1/4 - 20) are optional and may be purchased separately from Ideal Aerosmith.
