3-Dimensional Manipulator (3DM-01LD)

3-Dimensional Manipulator (3DM-01LD)

The TDK 3DM-01LD 3-D Manipulator is designed for remote three-dimensional positioning of test objects in EMC test environments.

The TDK RF Solutions 3DM-01LD is a three-dimensional manipulator used for remote positioning of antennas or equipment under test (EUT) in EMC test environments. The 3DM-01LD is used with a turntable to allow a complete three-dimensional pattern to be constructed. The turntable provides information for one axis and the 3DM-01LD provides accurate elevation rotation. This combination permits rotation of a test object in polar coordinates for three-dimension characterization of the test object. The test object can be rotated in and independently allowing positioning of the object in any particular plane about its axis.

Remote Control
The 3DM-01LD can be remotely controlled by the TDK RF Solutions SI-300 system interface unit. Remote control of the 3DM-01LD is achieved by use of fiber optic links, eliminating a potential interference source and distance limitations.

Custom Dimensions
The dimensions of the manipulator can be designed to your specifications. Dimensions are limited only by the maximum length of cable that is used.
