Aerotech ARMS200 Single Axis Rotary Motion Simulator

The Aerotech ARMS200, available from the CMC Equipment Rentals, is a direct-drive, single-axis rotary motion simulator ideal for testing a variety of MEMS devices such as gyroscopes and accelerometers. The ARMS simulator comes with a Soloist HLe Controller and Linear Digital Drive unit. This combination of tools provides excellent velocity stability, high position resolution and accuracy, and superior angular rate and acceleration. The system is programmed and controlled from the host computer using Aerotech software (provided with the instruments when renting). Custom applications can be developed using NI Labview, C, and .NET.
