The ER-15 rotary piezo motor coupled to a leadscrew provides a silent drive mechansim for target acquisition. The mechancial advantage of the screw provides resistance to shock, with a rotary piezo motor that eliminates a gearbox and optimizes SWaP.
Motion Solutions for: Defense Optronics
Nanomotion’s motors and motion modules have been designed to optimize a wide range of optronic applications. The use of Nanomotion’s piezo technology optimizes SWaP, (Size, weight, and Power) and provides silent operation for the most challenging environments. Nanomotion’s products are used in a wide range of flight, ground/water vehicle and weapon mounted applications that are subjected to a wide range of temperature, shock and vibration. All of Nanomotion’s motion modules are designed and tested to comply with defense and environmental requirements.
The ER family of piezo motors eliminates the need for a gearbox and provides exceptional high holding torque without power consumption. These motors operate silently at a significantly reduced weight than permanent magnet motors.
The rotary piezo shutter is an external shutter operating silently for thermal weapon sights and applications that are noise sensitive. The tubular shutter body includes all of the drive circutry along with a position sensor to eliminate the traditional "banging".
Nanomotion's NUC Shutter uses the Edge motor and integral position sensor and bearing structure to provide the most compact package for IR imaging. The linear NUC shutter sits directly over an FPA, maintaining the closest back working distance parallelism of the shutter blade for optimum calibration.
