The 2001P Series Automatic Positioning 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 2001P 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.
