The 1300 series Manual Tilt & Turn Tables from Ideal Aerosmith are designed for precision calibration of gyroscopic instruments or any devices requiring a tilt input in one or two axes. The table provides a portable, stable and precise positioning platform with lasting durability.
The table consists of two axes of motion, one for tilting and the other for rotating the table. It 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, and there are engraved marks at 0.5° increments on the tilt axis. The tabletop rotates continuously through 360° in a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction. Engraved marks are provided at 45° increments on the tabletop; engraved marks at 1° increments are optional. A spring-loaded steel ball engages detents in the bottom of the tabletop, locking it into position for quick setup. The detents 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 tabletop 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) may be purchased separately.
