"Rugged and precise sensor manipulation"
Nodder HD articulates large sensors on user-defined motion profiles; outputs time-tagged sensor and position data.
- Real-time user adjustable motion including continuous rotation
- Sensor data and nodding angle measurement are synchronized
- For laser payloads, outputs raw laser data appended with nodding angle and timestamp
- Internal time base synchronized to user PPS
- Diagnostics and fault reporting
- Dedicated FPGA logic for time critical operations

|Housing||Aluminum with powdercoat finish|
|Voltage (nominal)||10-36 VDC|
|Voltage (maximum)||50 V for < 100 ms|
|Power (Nodder w/payload)||150 W continuous capable (Power consumption varies with sensor payload and commanded motion.)|
|Power (Avail for Payload)||80 W at 24 V (Other options possible, please inquire.)|
|External Connector A||Deutsch DT Series (DT 15-08PA)(Power, enable, input PPS.)|
|External Connector B||Molex Heavy Duty M12 (130303-5100)(CAT5 Ethernet.)|
|Motion Axis Encoder Resolution||0.03º|
|Rotation Range||360º continuous via internal slip ring|
