Van Nuys, CA – — Motion Control – Four high resolution, high Load, high stability three axis gimbal mounts have been released by OES (Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc.). These four new AU270-YPR Three Axis (Yaw, Angular Pitch, and Roll) Gimbal Mounts were developed to be used with larger and heavier: Cameras, telescopes, directional antennas, optics, lasers, tracking and scanning systems. These new, larger, high stability, gimbal mounts are 400 mm wide x 480 mm high, weigh 50 kg and handle loads up to 10 kg and the Roll Axis features a large 90 mm thru hole for cables and optics.

The Yaw (Azimuth), Pitch (Angular Elevation), and Roll Stages of the AU270-YPR all feature high precision 200 mm diameter rotary stages. The Roll Stage has a precision pattern of threaded holes for mounting tooling, cameras, lasers, etc., and a 90 mm through hole. Devices up to 260 mm wide can be mounted on the Roll stage. Each stage features V-groove and crossed roller bearings, is capable of 360 degrees of continuous rotation and is driven by a 180:1 worm gear. Motor options to power each stage include: Two Phase-Stepper Motors (AU270-YPR-01), Three Phase Brushless Servo Motors with Quadrature Incremental Optical Encoders (AU270-YPR-02), DC Servo Motors with Quadrature Incremental Optical Encoders (AU270-YPR-03), or Two-Phase Stepper Motors with Quadrature Incremental Optical Encoders for position verification (AU270-YPR-04). Electrical connections are made using 9 pin DB-9 connectors.

The resolution of each stage is 0.001 degree or 3.6 arcsec with 10 micro-steps per Step Motor Driver in use. Higher resolutions and travel speeds to 45 degrees per second are possible with the servo motor options.

An optional 450 mm x 450 mm aluminum plate with four handles and mounting holes for increased stability is available and these Three-axis Gimbal Mounts can be ordered as a complete plug-and-play system with a multi-axis motion controller, joystick, trackball, or keypad.
