Overview

The EVO-20 Series is a full range of high-performance and modular two-axis positioning and rate tables which feature all required performance parameters for test and calibration of all grades of inertial sensors, from mass production of commercial grade MEMS to Navigation Grade, unaided 6 DOF Inertial Navigation Systems (INS).

The EVO-20 Series is designed with key components chosen for having the best quality.  Brushless motors, optical encoders and slip-ring capsules are critical to the performance of the complete system.  Every EVO-20 comes with iXblue nGine controller and ProaXe Graphical User Interface, which are the most advanced control electronics in terms of performance, efficiency and safety. Smart innovations help reduce customers’ integration time and non-recurring costs.

SCALABILITY: The EVO-20 Series can evolve with your process. A climatic chamber may be installed onto the EVO-20 outer axis to enhance the environmental simulation, custom slip-rings and tabletops for your Unit Under Test can also be designed.
