Abstract : In the patent a test fixture is provided with selective movement capability along any one of three mutually orthogonal axes. An adjustable support means is configured to support any of a plurality of devices to be tested on the fixture such as to position the center of gravity above the intersection of the axis of movement. A lock mechanism prevents movement of the support fixture about nonselected axes. An interlock is provided for the lock mechanism to prevent movement along the undesired ones of the mutually perpendicular orthogonal axes and to permit movement along the selected axis in dependence on the interlock position.
