The Model 2103C Three-Axis Positioning and Rate Table System is designed to provide precise position, rate, and acceleration motion for the development and/or production testing of military and/or commercial antenna stabilization systems and/or heading sensors.

The 2103C test table achieves accurate and reliable motion control with a servo-controlled system consisting of direct-drive brushless torque motors, precision absolute optical encoders and the Ideal Aerosmith AERO 3500 Commander microprocessor based three-axis motion controller.

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