RYP3000 Roll Yaw Pitch Rotational Positioner
Features
  • Coincident rotation center.

  • Patented Inline actuators provide ease of access.

  • Patent pending All - Flexure Drive™ system affords superior resolution for far less cost.

  • Small footprint allows multiple unit workstations.

  • Onboard controller for actuators avoids high cost of separate motion controllers.

  • Damped exterior shell design provides superior vibration and touch insensitivity.

  • Lightweight aluminum construction allows system to be moved easily by other motion equipment.

  • High mechanical stiffness affords rugged and stable base system.

  • Dual flexure Yaw and Pitch stages provide extreme resolution without arc error.

  • Can be added to the I3000 XYZ stage to provide a 6-axis system

Overview
Precision Angular Alignment

If you want the most extreme resolution in 3-axis rotational system for positioning that is rugged and repeatable, easy to use, with superior resolution - the Luminos RYP3000 is the most advanced 3-axis manual positioning / alignment system on the market. This 3-axis Roll Yaw Pitch positioner is flexure based with no frictional bearings. Each axis provides a total travel of 3 degrees. The patented Ratio Drive™ allows an incredible by hand resolution of 0.2 arc second Roll and 0.4 arc second Yaw and Pitch resolution without touch sensitivity. The coincident rotation point is projected one inch in front of the unit and 12.7 mm (0.5") above for unobstructed access.

Automation

With this advanced design, upgrading to automation is easy and inexpensive.  The standard stepper motor option provides 0.1 arc second resolution on the roll axis and 0.2 arc second resolution on the pitch and yaw axes.

For more information on the actuators used for automation of Luminos positioners go to Actuator / Stepper Motor Specifications.
