The 1281 Single Axis Position and Rate Table System is designed to provide precise position, rate and acceleration motion for development or production testing of inertial sensors. The 1281 was specifically designed for testing today’s considerably smaller inertial sensors and systems.
Accurate and reliable motion control of the 1281 test table is achieved with a servo-controlled system consisting of a direct drive brushless torque motor, a precision absolute encoder, and an internal microprocessor-based motion control system. Position, rate and acceleration are commanded from a host PC (not provided) via the RS-232 or Ethernet communication interfaces. The user can utilize an Ideal-provided LabVIEW™ Application Program or their own communication software package with Ideal’s software (ATL command set) to control the 1281.
