PITTSBURGH, April 29, 2015 — For applications from sensor calibration to laser beam steering, gimbals from Aerotech Inc. provide elevation-over-azimuth positioning in a variety of standard travel ranges. The AMG-GR two-axis, gear-driven motorized gimbals feature standard circular cells ranging from 100 to 300 mm in diameter. Cell mounting options include a centered (balanced) cell or a front-surface reflection option, where the front of the optic is located on the axes of rotation. Special configurations are available to accommodate noncircular optics, cameras, sensors and round optics larger than 300 mm in diameter. The modular design permits each gimbal mirror cell to be modified or replaced with differently shaped cells to accommodate sensors or other asymmetrically shaped payloads. The gimbals can be outfitted with brushless servo or stepper motors. A full range of matching drives and controls are available. For applications that require high accuracy and repeatability, a direct encoder mounted to the cell and yoke is available. Vacuum-compatible versions are also offered.
