Abstract : An active lag angular device is provided in which an electric torque motor is mounted and has a rotary shaft that is connected to a reference surface structure for rotating the reference surface structure about an axis of rotation that coincides with the axis of the rotator of the motor. The reference surface structure has pulleys mounted thereon so that an optical fiber can approach the active lag angle device at a guide pulley along an axis that coincides with the axis of the rotator shaft of the motor and be turned by the pulleys and directed along a substantially constant position relative to the reference surface structure.
