Zaber's X-G-RST-DE series products are motorized two-axis rotation stage devices with built-in controllers and direct reading encoders for high accuracy motion. Rated for up to 15 kg load capacity centered about the elevation axis and 10 N⋅m of torque, they are ideal for high-load, high-precision, angular positioning in optics, telecom, scanning, and tracking applications.

These gimbals ship assembled, making them 'plug and play'. They are easy to set up and operate. A variety of standard crossmembers for both metric and imperial mounting are available: AP193M, AP193E, AP194M & AP194E; custom versions are also available. The adjustable height of the elevation assembly provides a versatile solution for centering different size payloads.
