The CONEX-AG-M100D is a piezo motor actuated absolute positioning mirror mount with a dedicated closed-loop controller/driver. For out-of-the box control, the CONEX-AGAP controller is preconfigured and delivered with an Agilis AG-M100D mirror mount with a built-in, 2 axis, absolute, angular position sensor.The CONEX-AGAP is a very compact and inexpensive dual axis motion controller with the same driver as the proven Agilis AG-UC2 2-axis driver. The controller comes with the familiar CONEX GUI / NSTRUCT, simple and intuitive to use and conveniently accessible via USB, which also supplies power to the controller.
The CONEX-AG-M100D mirror mount features an innovative miniature absolute position sensor. Within a footprint similar to the 1inch mirror mount of the Agilis family, it offers an angular positioning capability of 0.001°, even after a system reset.This position recovery capability is a key feature of this the CONEX-AGAP and the combination of the closed-loop algorithm with the absolute position sensor, it provides bi-directional repeatability of 0.01°.
Like its controller, the mirror mount is very compact, but is capable of +/- 0.75 deg travel on both axes with an angular opened loop adjustment sensitivity better than 2 µrad. For closed loop positioning, the MIM is 0.001°.
At the desired position, the angular stability of the AG-M100D absolute position mirror mount is the same as an ULTIMA mirror mount. Its thermal stability is in the range of 5 µradians / °C.
