In research labs around the world, palm-sized motorized gimbals are used to align optical fibers, steer lasers, and adjust the angle of lenses and mirrors for optical systems. It can be easy to set up the exact gimbal required when using off-the-shelf modular hardware with well-integrated software and electronics. This combination streamlines the configuration process and achieves optimal performance. In this article, we explain how to take advantage of Zaber’s modular, off-the-shelf rotary and tilt stages, brackets, and built-in controllers to build an astounding variety of 2 and 3-axis gimbal systems.
