The Ideal Aerosmith Trip Guardian™1503-TSNM-A Series test table is a three-axis, nonmagnetic manual positioning table. This table can be used for the calibration of downhole directional instruments including magnetometers, gyroscopes, and accelerometers. The tables are constructed of aluminum, brass, and phenolic and have three orthogonal axes to enable the instrument to be placed in various orientations.
The 1503-TS-NM-A Series is similar to the 1503-TS-SPL version except the work surface is cylindrical and handles payloads up to 4 inches in diameter and 54 inches in length. Each of the three axes may be positioned manually by rotating the axis to the desired position and locking the axis clamp at a coarse axis position. A fine adjust mechanism, along with the inductosyn and display instrumentation, is then used to set the desired axis position.
Like the 1503-TS-SPL, a thermal chamber is provided so the device under test can be subjected to elevated temperature while being rotated.
