The EAR-1010-SYS consists of the Elevation-over-Azimuth Positioner, controller (ACU-
3E-24) and cables required for power and control of the positioner.
The load capacity of the system is 1000 lbs with a 5g vertical shock rating. It is designed
to meet MIL-STD-810 and will provide reliable operation in outdoor environments. An
azimuth slip ring with a 4” ID is provided for a coaxial or waveguide rotary joint.
This system has been designed to work in high wind speeds, up to 100 mph. Utilizing
an advanced digital motion control system it provides accurate, simultaneous motion in
both axis using brushless servo motors with resolvers, 15 bit absolute encoders, high
quality gearing and precision mechanical components. This system is ideally suited for
communication, RADAR, tracking or EW applications in a high wind environment.
The EAR-1010 can be controlled locally using front panel controls or remotely via serial
Interface (RS-232, 422, 485 or Ethernet) using simple, well defined commands. The
controller is suitable for rack mounting and is designed to meet Mil-STD-810 for indoor
operation and MIL-STD-461E depending on the application.
