The AERO 4000 controller is the most advanced and capable digital servo controller on the market today. Ideal’s 4th generation digital motion controller was introduced to the market in 2006. Ideal was assigned US Patent # 7,702,400 in 2010 covering some of the key functional building blocks.
The AERO 4000 is designed for Ideal’s next generation of precision Hardware-in-the-Loop Flight Motion Systems, rate table systems, and precision centrifuges. Of equal importance, the AERO 4000 controller brings significant benefits to users of older flight motion systems and rate tables. By retrofitting a system controlled by an older analog and first-generation digital controllers with the new AERO 4000, users can gain accuracy, reliability, and service life with a new generation controller that has a well-defined future support path built on PC-based components. Even for systems controlled by newer generation digital controllers, upgrading to the AERO 4000 improves reliability while extending the support life.
In the AERO 4000, Ideal Aerosmith continues to adhere to its long-standing philosophy of using COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) technology so that all of its motion-based test systems will benefit customers with the lowest life-cycle cost of ownership.
