Digital Movement Controller with Quick Focus and Freeze, Automated Scans

The closed-loop digital servo piezo controller provides the benefit of upper linearity, and easy accessibility to superior options compared to typical analog servo piezo movement controllers. It supplies responsive real-time monitoring, and it helps PI’s distinctive Quick Focus & Freeze functionality, the place the nanopositioning stage will be switched from an exterior loop (focus sensor) to inside loop (place measuring sensor), and not using a place leap, permitting ultra-stable motions with respect to the focal aircraft.

Options & Benefits

  • 1 nanometer decision
  • 200µm journey ranges in XY and XYZ
  • Low-cost piezoresistive and high-end capacitive sensor variations obtainable
  • Extremely-high-speed model for particle monitoring
  • Millisecond step & settle
  • Low profile for straightforward integration: 20mm (0.8″)
  • Made within the USA

Software program Bundle

An intensive software program package deal is included: dynamic libraries for Home windows and Linux, MATLAB, and, in fact, LabVIEW drivers. The system can also be appropriate with main picture acquisition packages, equivalent to µManager, MetaMorph, Andor iQ. Interfaces embody USB, RS-232, and high-resolution analog (4 inputs, ±5V or ±10V, 18-bit A/D converters). Supported features embody information recorder, auto zero, wave generator, and set off I/O.

200 Micrometer Journey per Axis with Millisecond Responsiveness

​​​​​​​The straightforward-to-integrate, low-profile (20mm/0.8”) microscopy nanopositioning phases present 1 nanometer decision or higher with lengthy journey ranges of 200µm and millisecond step time – preferrred stipulations for high-resolution microscopy and imaging purposes. Microscope slides and Petri dishes are simply accommodated within the massive clear aperture.

Direct-Drive for Extremely-Excessive-Pace Particle Monitoring

A high-force, high-speed variant with direct-drive and a high-output piezo controller / amplifier can also be obtainable for the quickest purposes together with particle monitoring.
