Mechatronics Soutions Radome and antenna measurement positioners range is specifically designed to complete all types of antenna and radome measurements.
Three positioner families are available according to the antenna and radome diameters and loads. The measurement positioners are composed of two positioners articulated by a mechanical structure.
The radome positioner is located in the lower part of the structure with its 2 axes, roll over azimuth. The antenna positioner is situated in the upper part with its 3 axes, roll over azimuth over elevation. (Figure 1). The positioners are also equipped with horizontal displacement offset axes used to adjust both the converging azimuth axes, the radome and the antenna. These axes can be rotated manualy or motorized according to requirement.
The antenna positioner is in the radome roll but completely independent. Indeed during the radome rotation, the antenna positioner remains fixed, only the axes are coaxial.
All the motorized axes are driven by servo-amplifiers either independently or simultaneously, whereas the azimuth axes of the two positioners are actuated by a master-slave servo-control.
As an option, an elevation axis can be implemented to allow the displacement of the radome.
