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.
In order to reduce the absolute angular deviation, it is possible to replace the standard goniometer 408 with the version 410. Due to its larger dimensions, however, the area in shadow is increased.
For sample adjustment an optical microscope or an optional CCD-camera is integrated (see Accessories MiniVID).
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.
