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 motorised XYZ-stage with an operational range of 150 x 150 x 25 mm is integrated in the Phi-circle.
For sample adjustment an optical microscope or an optional CCD-camera is integrated (see Accessories MiniVID).
All movements are equipped with zero-point controls, limit switches and step motors.
