The 1571P Series High Speed Rate Table Systems are designed to provide a precision high velocity testing solution for the development and/or production testing of inertial packages or their components.

A typical application is for missile or projectile programs. The 1571P test table is a servo-controlled system featuring a direct-drive DC brushless motor, precision optical encoder and a microprocessor that provides accurate and reliable motion control.

The table can be operated from the AERO 4000 Controller front panel for local control or through a computer interface for remote control.
