The Eulerian cradle is a full-circle cradle with an assymetrical design. The Phi- and Chi-circle planes are at right angles to one another.
The motor and signal currents are transmitted via slip rings. This enables an unrestricted rotation around both axes.
A manual Z-adjustment 5104.A05 is integrated in the Phi-circle, enabling the mounting of goniometer heads of the series 1000.
For sample adjustment an optical microscope or an optional CCD-camera is integrated (see Accessories MiniVD).
Both circles are equipped with zero-point controls and step motors. A range of different motor types and specifications is available according to customer requirements.
It is possible to equip the Eulerian cradle with a cryostat mount and/or counter bearings for mounting individually required equipment.
