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.
Incorporated in the Phi-circle is a motorised XY-stage with an operational range of 60x60mm. The Z-adjustment (15mm) is manual.
For sample adjustment an optical microscope or an optional CCD-camera is integrated (see Accessories MiniVID).
All movements (except Z-adjustment) are equipped with zero-point controls, limit switches and step motors.
