Motion control forms an important aspect of measurement systems specifically when dealing with high frequency measurements where accuracy is of paramount importance. ASYSOL has steered away from the classical approach of utilising large positioners, bulky cables and connectors and has instead embraced technology from the consolidated robotic and automotive industry.
There are a number of significant advantages for sourcing motors and control equipment from the above mentioned sectors, namely:
- Cost effective solutions
- Integrated sealed units
- Built in absolute encoders
- Modular approach
- Low maintenace
- Lubricated for life
- Integrated CAN-BUS communication protocol
ASYSOL's engineering department has been heavily involved in developing a new family of azimuth, elevation and polarisation positioners making use of the above components.
