The 1542C-12-TL Series Automatic Positioning and Rate Table System is designed to provide precise position, rate and acceleration motion for the development and/or production testing of inertial packages and their components.

The 1542C-12-TL Series test table is a servocontrolled systems featuring direct-drive brushless torque motors, precision absolute optical encoders and a microprocessor based controller that provides accurate and reliable motion control.

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