The 1621C Series Automatic Position and Rate Table Systems are designed to provide precise position, rate and acceleration motion for the development and/or production testing of navigation sensor systems such as Fiber Optic Gyros (FOG), Ring Laser Gyros (RLG), Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) and accelerometers.

The 1621C test table is a servo-controlled system featuring a direct-drive brushless torque motor, precision absolute optical encoder and a microprocessor that provides accurate and reliable motion control.

The table can be operated from the AERO 3500 Commander Controller 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.
