The complete versatility of elevated or ground-level testing on a single test range can be achieved by incorporating the vertical slides. This flexibility is made possible through extended vertical carriage travel and ease of installation and adjustment of equipment on the tower. Payload weights to 453.5 kg (1,000 lb) can be elevated to approximately 7 m (23 ft) above the ground.
- Two tracks on the narrow tower-face guide the carriage, which can be remotely raised or lowered as desired by a cable/winch drive system.
- Adjustable electrical limit switches at the top and bottom of the tower prevent over travel and possible equipment damage.
- Digital position readout.
- Hand pendant.
