High Precision Motorised Optical Mounts
Dec 20 2005 Read 1117 Times
Offering high resolution (to 0.1 arc second) and uni-directional repeatability (0.5 arc second) the new range of motorised optical mounts are designed for positioning large precision optics such as off-axis paraboloids & spherical or flat mirrors in applications where stability of pointing is important. The new range comprises four standard models covering optical apertures from 305 mm (12 inches) to 550 mm (21.6 inches). The 305mm motorised optical mounts offers plus or minus 7 degree rotation in the elevation and azimuth axes.
Robustly built for long trouble-free operation, even with heavier loads, the motorised optical mounts are available with stepper motor or where the highest resolution positioning is required a DC brush servo motor. Remotely controllable via easy to use PC software the motorised optical mounts are particularly suitable for applications in hostile environments, within a vacuum or where limited space makes manual adjustment difficult.
