PT-0701 Elevation over Azimuth Pedestal

Used for test and instrumentation, this video-tracking Elevation over Azimuth Sensor Positioning Pedestal/Gimbal is of an open yoke design, allowing customer-supplied devices to be mounted both inside and outside of the center section. The pedestal has a unique alternate mirror configuration that allows for mounting of a mirror to a third axis in the center section that rotates at one half the main payload elevation angle.

The pedestal is mounted to a wheeled platform with leveling feet for lab or field transport. The controller is mounted to the pedestal base, enabling a compact design and minimizing external cabling.
