UHV Series

The standard gimbal geometry consists of three parallel and equidistant aluminium plates interconnected in a universal joint geometry. The top and bottom plates are equally spaced from the centre plate and held in a parallel and neutral position with eight coil springs. Top and bottom plates are fitted with precision micrometers used to produce a 15° tilt about the centre plates X and Y axis respectively. When all adjustment mechanisms are disengaged the springs force the plates back to a neutral and parallel position. Economical screw type adjustments are also available in place of micrometers.

Standard gimbals are designed for use with Caburn-MDC formed bellows flexible adaptors with 50.8 and 31 .8mm bore diameters. Flexible bellows adaptors are not included with standard gimbal assemblies and must be purchased separately./p>
