An ambient-Temperature Continuously Rotating Half-Wave Plate (CRHWP) modulates the input polarization signal thereby enabling removal of low-frequency (1/f) noise from polarized flux measurements. This 1/f noise arises from atmospheric turbulence as well as from effects intrinsic to certain detectors. Here, we describe the design and performance of the half wave plate rotator and achromatic half-wave plate for the the new imaging polarimeter, TolTEC. These components are mounted in front of the cryostat window and operate at ambient temperature. The Half-Wave Plate Rotator (HWPR) spins the half-wave plate at 2 revolutions per second. The rotation mechanism consists of nine air bearings to provide low-friction motion and a frameless torque motor to directly drive rotation. The orientation of the rotor and half-wave plate are recorded using a high-precision optical encoder. We review the experimental requirements and technical design of the rotator as well as the associated electronics, pneumatics, and software.
