Following a very successful DSEI Show appearance in 2015, Heason Technology – the leading UK motion control supplier and systems integrator - will once again demonstrate its capability for the design and build of customised motion systems through working demos and a selection of individual motion components from its distribution partners.
Heason Technology’s technical team will be on stand S3-102 to discuss and demonstrate component level motion solutions or complete multi –axis motion systems from a product range that spans components and systems from a select group of globally recognised distribution partners. These products blend with Heason’s unique in-house capability for motion system design, integration and build.
New for 2017 is a production example of a high-performance pan & tilt positioner which is custom-designed for applications such as line of sight/beyond line of sight secure communications, but could be adapted for positioning other types of loads such as required for range finding or target tracking. The highly accurate azimuth/elevation positioner was developed for a leading UK global security and military communications sector system integrator.
This 270 Nm peak-torque capacity assembly, housed in a robust IP67- rated cast aluminium enclosure for harsh environment installation, will suit both fixed and mobile use. A compact dual-axis micro-stepping/zero backlash gearbox drive arrangement includes rotary joints that allows RF and other electrical services to pass through the complete assembly, with full 360° rotary travel for the azimuth axis and +/- 95° for elevation. Closed-loop position control through absolute encoders and high bandwidth communication, ensures arc-second repeatability and high speed angular positioning performance with instant power-on, so there is no need for set-up or datum routines. Heason’s application engineers at the show will be pleased to discuss how the modular design of the platform is adaptable and scalable for smaller/larger payloads.
