Weve incorporated our Picomotor actuators with our gothic-arch-bearing translation stages to achieve the ultimate in stability and rigidity along with remote-control operation. When ordering specify which axis or axes you wish motorized with a P in the model number for Picomotor actuator, and N for manual micrometer. For instance, Model 9062-XY-PN is for a motorized X-axis and a manual Y-axis. All necessary clamps, brackets and base plates are included so that the stage can be used right out of the box. These motorized stages offer stainless-steel construction, thumbscrew locks, and 13-mm travel ranges. They are ideal for demanding applications in the laboratory, OEM, or on the manufacturing ﬂoor. Gothic-arch bearings offer the smooth motion of ball bearings but high stiffness and repeatability. The unique gothic proﬁle provides increased contact area so that the load and momentum are more evenly distributed.To drive and control the Picomotor actuators, we offer driver kits which are sold separately. For example, the Model 8763-KIT three-axis iPico driver kit is equipped with a network controller and a driver for controlling up to three individual Picomotor actuators (and can be expanded by adding up to 30 Model 8753 iPico driver modules). It includes a Model 8752 Ethernet controller, a Model 8755 power supply, and one Model 8753 iPico driver. Note that for applications requiring simultaneous independent control of each Picomotor actuator, it would be necessary to have one independent Model 8753 iPico driver module dedicated for driving of each individual Picomotor actuator. The kit also includes all required mounting and interface cables to make installation easy. It is ready for computer control by using an Ethernet cable or, for RS-232 control, a null modem cable. The six-axis version of this driver kit is the Model 8766-KIT . Related products include the Model 8757 iPico handpad terminal and Model 8754 multi-function two-axis joystick.
Example Model Number: 9062-XYZ-PPN9062-XYZ stage with Picomotor actuators integrated on X and Y axes and manual micrometer on Z axis.
