Press Release Summary:
Motorized Kinematic Mount offers kinematic movement with 10.5Â° of angular travel and 0.264Â° per motor revolution. Once mount moves to desired position, it reports position via RS-232 connection and will maintain that position even without power applied. Potentiometers, located on back, can be used to manually move mount at speeds from 1.5 Âµrad/sec to 60 mrad/sec. Each self-contained unit includes two stepper motors, 15 V universal power supply, and 6 ft data cable.

Motorized Kinematic Mount
The computer controlled Motorized Kinematic Mount offers high resolution kinematic movement with 10.5° of angular travel and 0.264° per motor revolution. Once the Motorized Kinematic Mount moves to a desired position, it reports the position through the RS-232 connection and will maintain that position even without power applied. The potentiometers located on the back of the mount provide a convenient way to manually control position. The potentiometers can be used to move the mount at a minimum speed of 1.5ìrad/s up to a maximum speed of 60mrad/s. During a manual move, the mount continually transmits its position and can be monitored via a computer, though no computer is required for manual operation.
Each self contained unit includes two stepper motors (one for each axis), built-in controller that connects directly to the RS-232 port of any computer, 15V universal power supply, and 6ft. data cable. Replacement accessories can be purchased separately. Mount can be daisy-chained up to 127 units (254 axes).
