ARQUIMEA’s Gimbal powered by Phi Drive motor device is a two-axes positioner which function is to direct precisely a load. The gimbal is formed by two motors driven by piezoelectric stacks with electric redundancy. The gimbal includes two degrees of freedom: the rotation in roll and yaw axes.
The system design shows moderate torque capabilities, providing system simplification with a very high accuracy and very low backlash to the user avoiding the use of additional gearboxes.
Typical applications of Pre2Pos Gimbal include antennas, scientific instruments and reflectors pointing and positioning, as well as solar arrays, booms and masts deployments.
