Large Optic Gimbal


Design Features

  • High acceleration, high precision two-axis gimbal for precise optic positioning
  • High load capacity bearings allow for large payloads
  • Direct-drive rotary motors provide smooth acceleration and positioning accuracies as low as 2 arc-seconds peak-to-peak
  • This particular design is meant for 300 mm diameter payloads, but larger apertures can be accommodated
  • High-precision axis alignment is performed during system assembly
  • Example applications including tracking, calibrating, and positioning of optics and electro-optic devices
