May 29, 2019 - Motorized, Pan-Tilt Stages have been added to the line of OES (Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc.) motion control products. These motorized Pan-Tilt Stages are available in two sizes. The PT60-1 Pan-Tilt Stage is a combination of two 60 mm (2.362 in.) rotary stages and the PT100-1 is a combination of two 100 mm (3.937 in.) rotary stages, set at a 90O angle to each other. The rotary stages of each Pan-Tilt stage features a repeatability of 0.005O (18 arc-sec), a positional accuracy of 0.005O (18 arc-sec), and a resolution of 0.001O = 3.6'' (10 Micro-steps per Step Motor Driver in use). These Pan (horizontal table)-Tilt (vertical table) Stages are suitable for: Scanning, testing, inspection, assembly, positioning, laser and micro machining, pointing optics and cameras, and other applications.
The pan and tilt axes on both stages have precision V-grove and crossed roller travel guides and are driven by a worm gear with just of 0.005O (18 arc-sec) of backlash. These Pan-Tilt stages weigh just 2.0 kg (4.4 lbs) for the PT60-1 and 4.4 kg (9.75 lbs) for the PT100-1 and load capacities are 10 kg (22 lbs) and 20 kg (44 lbs) respectively).
Each axis is driven by a standard bi-directional stepper motor with a knob for manual adjustments and each rotary axis has a vernier scale for setup. The knob on each motor can be replaced with an optional encoder for position verification. Travel speed of each axis is 12O per second with a stepper motor or for higher speeds and closed loop operation, servo motors are available. Electrical connections are made using 9 pin DB-9 connectors.
The PT60-1 and the PT100-1 Pan-Tilt Stages can be ordered as complete plug-and-play systems with a multi-axis controller, joystick, trackball or keypad.
