2102C Series Two Axis Position and Rate Table System


The Model 2102C Two Axis Positioning and Rate Table System is designed to provide precise position, rate and acceleration motion for the development and/or production testing of military and/or commercial rate and position sensors. The Model 2102C test table is designed to be easily customized with a wide range of options to meet your specific requirements.

Accurate and reliable motion control of the 2102C Test Table is achieved with a servo-controlled system consisting of direct-drive brushless torque motors, precision absolute optical encoders, and the Ideal Aerosmith AERO 3500 Commander microprocessor based two axis motion controller.

The table can be operated from the AERO 3500 Commander Controller front panel for local control or remotely through a host PC via Ideal Aerosmith Table Language (ATL) over an RS-232, IEEE-488 or an Ethernet communication interface using .NET.

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