The AMG-GR series of gear-driven motorised gimbals provide economical, high-accuracy elevation-over-azimuth positioning. These gimbals are built using the primary positioning elements of the robust and economical AGR-series rotary stage. The AMG-GR is available in a variety of standard travel ranges. Due to the flexibility of the design, customised travels are easily accommodated. A variety of accuracy grades, motor types, and cell designs make this the ideal stage series for applications ranging from sensor calibration to laser beam steering.
- Economical, high-accuracy, two-axis gimbal design
- Travels from 90 degrees to continuous rotation available
- Circular (100 to 300mm) and custom cells available
- Front surface reflecting and centered cell options
- Direct encoder option for increased accuracy/repeatability
- Servo and stepper motors available
Cell Design Versatility
The AMG-GR comes standard with circular cells ranging from 100mm to 300mm diameter. Cell mounting options include a centered (balanced) cell or a front-surface reflection option where the front of the optic is located on the axes of rotation. Special configurations are available to accommodate non-circular optics, cameras, sensors, and round optics larger than 300mm in diameter. Due to a modular-design approach, each gimbal mirror cell can be easily modified or replaced with different shaped cells to accommodate sensors or other asymmetrically-shaped payloads.
The AMG-GR can be outfitted with brushless servo or stepper motors. A full range of matching drives and controls are available for a complete single-source solution.
For applications that require high-accuracy and repeatability, a direct-encoder mounted to the cell and yoke is available. Vacuum-compatible versions are also available.
