Aerotech's ARMS series direct-drive rotary motion simulators provide superior angular rates, accelerations, and positioning for the testing of inertial components and systems such as MEMS, gyroscopes, inertial measurement units, avionics, and accelerometers.
Accurate Velocity and Positioning
The ARMS family of stages provides excellent velocity and positioning control. When coupled with Aerotech's advanced controls, resolution can be as fine as 0.02 arc second, with accuracy to ±2.5 arc second and repeatability to ±0.5 arc second. The motor and high-performance rotary encoder are directly coupled to a common shaft. The absence of gear trains and mechanical couplings means no position errors caused by hysteresis, windup, or backlash. The ARMS has rate resolution down to 0.001 deg/s and rate stability to 0.0001%.
