PaleBlue motion simulators are light-weight optimized solutions allowing for experiencing full motion. In PaleBlue simulators, the movement is synchronised with a visual display of the outside world. Motion platforms can provide movement using a number of degrees of freedom (DOF). These are the three rotational degrees of freedom (roll, pitch, yaw) and three translational or linear degrees of freedom (surge, heave, sway).
This type is also called "Two degrees of freedom". It is an entry-level motion platform for simple industry or entertainment simulators. 2-DoF is the right choice for applications when vertical movements or accelerations are not critically important: excavator simulator, truck, loader, train and others vehicles. But it can be used as simplified flight and racing simulators. Here we use AC or DC motors with reducers depending on max-load requirements.
These types of platforms have 3 levers which are capable of translating pitch, roll and heave motions to a real life and it is medium price solution for your simulator. Compared to the 2-DoF platforms 3-DoF has higher performance to price ratio and better fidelity of vertical accelerations. It can used as full-equipped racing installation or advanced bus/trolleybus training system.
This type is known as full motion and provides outstanding experience with extremely high payload capabilities. In addition to described above pitch, roll and heave axes is supports yaw, sway, surge. It can be used for most challenging projects or situations when it is required high precision motion. This types of platforms are perfect solution for professional vessel/flight simulators. Here we use complete 3-fase AC reducer-motors with VFD in case of usual ranges or linear DC actuators to provide extended range of translations.
As well as the traditional types we develop various custom motion platforms. 2-DoF and 3-DoF can be upgraded with additional rotation axis or we can design and produce platform for 360 degrees rotation for all three main axes (upside-down revolution).
