Agilis optical mounts feature Newports proven, proprietary, non-resonant piezo motors. These highly integrated motors are directly coupled to the moving optics holder for robust and predictable performance. When idle, the motor spring force locks the mirror in place, providing true set and forget stability. Agilis mounts also have a faster adjustment speed than alternative screw driven designs and are free of the problems associated with backlash or hysteresis. In contrast to ultrasonic motors, the Agilis non-resonant motors makes small adjustments more predictable. With 50 nm minimum incremental motion capability on each motor, Agilis mounts are ideal for sensitive alignment and optical adjustments.
CONEX-Agilis mirror mounts have been designed with an integrated strain gauge to provide absolute positioning performance. Delivered with a compact, preconfigured CONEX controller, the CONEX-AG-M100D delivers repeatable positioning and is ideal for applications that require a return to a saved position. The CONEX-AG-M100D can also be power cycled without a loss to posiiton feedback. This means that the position of the mount can be used as a diagnostic tool for alignment, while never requiring a reset of position. The integrated controller, also provides a full command set and only requires USB for power. CONEX-Agilis motorized mirror mounts are ideal for systems integration and remote adjustment of optics.
