ALS30000 Custom Linear Positioner


Design Features

  • 5 g, 5 m/s in center 1 m of travel with 5 kg load
  • 2 m travel, 1.7 m travel at max acceleration and speed
  • ±1% velocity stability at 5 m/s
  • 150 kg max load
  • Accuracy ±5 µm calibrated, ±50 µm uncalibrated
  • Replaceable e-chain cables
The high speed, high force, linear motion simulator is used for research and aerospace testing applications that need exceptional velocity stability, very high accelerations, and long travel. The granite base provides excellent stiffness and thermal stability.

  1. Available with Aerotech controllers.
  2. Speed and acceleration based on 5 kg load.
  3. 10 ms sample rate.
  4. Maximum load based on bearing capability. Maximum application load may be limited by acceleration requirements.
  5. Specifications are for single-axis systems measured 25 mm above the tabletop. Performance of multi-axis systems is payload and work-point dependent. Consult factory for multi-axis or non-standard applications.

  6. Note: To ensure the achievement and repeatability of the specifications over an extended period of time, environmental temperature must be controlled to within 0.25°C/24 hours. If this is not possible, alternate products are available. Please consult Aerotech Sales Engineering for more information.
