The 2455H-ER extends the capabilities of Ideal’s three-axis FMS systems for hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) seeker/guidance testing, to include target motion simulation. The inner target axis can accommodate an infra-red scene projector. Extremely efficient hydraulic actuators allow high system utilization – such as Monte Carlo-type test scenarios – on a time-continuous basis.
As with our three-axis FMS systems, Ideal’s flexible AERO 4000 Controller affords real-time motion control via several industry-standard high-speed interfaces.
The 2455H-ER features a direct-drive DC brushless motor for the innermost (Roll) axis, highperformance hydraulic vane actuators on the remaining four axes, and precision optical encoders on all axes. The AERO 4000 digital signal processor-based (DSP) controller provides accurate and reliable motion control.
The user can operate the FMS from the AERO 4000 Graphic User Interface for local control, or remotely via a computer interface. It affords easy operation, and can accommodate the Ideal Aerosmith Table Language (ATL) for remote operation. The AERO 4000 controller comes standard with IEEE-488, RS-232, and Ethernet communication interfaces.
