Motion control covered [DSEI17D2]

13 September 2017

Heason Technology (Stand S3-102) is showcasing its newest motion control systems, including a production example of a new pan and tilt positioner that is custom-designed for secure communications.

The positioner could also be adapted for positioning for other roles, such as range and target tracking, according to the company, and the azimuth/elevation positioner was developed for a UK security and military communication system integrator.

Heason added that the 270Nm peak-torque capacity assembly, housed in a robust IP67-rated cast aluminium enclosure for harsh environment installation, will suit both fixed and mobile use.

Distribution partner of Heason, Nanomotion, is also displaying its direct-drive piezo-ceramic motor technology, which is built into positioning stages and has the ability to be used for target acquisition or in aperture control devices in military systems.

Elmo Motion Control,meanwhile, has its ultracompact servo drives on the stand, while Spinea’s high precision, zero-backlash reduction gear units are also on display, as are the Zettlex Inc inductive sensor technology, Thomson linear actuators and precision mechanics, and Servotecnica slip ring assemblies and rotary joints.
