A DYNAMIC AND COMPACT HEXAPOD

Notus hexapod is a compact and structurally robust motion generator. It is also more affordable than larger hexapods.

Notus P has a payload capacity of 200 kg (P for payload).

Notus V hexapod is a faster version (V for velocity) with a payload capacity limited to 100 kg. Speeds are given in the datasheet.

These hexapods are ideal for research laboratories or for applications in medical (neurology, kinesiology), naval (swell simulation, sloshing, wave basins), aerospace, automotive (sensors for autonomous vehicles, AdBlue tanks testing) or optronics (stabilization of electro-optics systems testing) fields.

A HIGH-PERFORMANCE CONTROL CENTER

Controlling a parallel kinematics mechanism such as a positioning or motion hexapod requires fast and numerous calculations to transform the position instructions into motor current set points while permanently securing the motions.

For this, all our motion hexapods come with a high-performance control rack interacting with either our Graphical User Interface (GUI) or optionally directly with your software environment through an Application Programming Interface (API).

A COMPLETE AND FLEXIBLE SOLUTION

Our racks are made with:

■ a powerful multi-axis OMRON / Delta Tau industrial controller
■ drivers sized to meet the needs of each application
■ input-output modules allowing various interactions with the hexapod environment.

Our robust and flexible controller solutions can be adapted to different types of motors (DC, brushless, stepper) coupled to various encoder technologies (absolute, incremental, linear, rotary).

Our controllers are compatible with our hand-held control unit in option.

You can learn more about the many applications of motion & positioning hexapods at our application page.
