Built-in stepper motor controller with iPP technology

Example of a multi-axis configuration. Note that FC-PS40 power supply and USB-RS422-1.8 adapter cable must be purchased separately.

The FCR's design brings together a rotary stage with a built-in controller and driver for easy integration. Not only is the controller pre-configured with intelligent stepper motor technology, iPP, but the stage is also ready for plug-and-play via USB connection. The built-in controller eliminates the need for an external controller and cables, thus saving work-space and cost.

Daisy-Chain up to 4 FC units

Example of a daisy-chaining configuration. Note that FC-PS40 power supply, FC-CB1 communication cable, and USB-RS422-1.8 adapter cable must be purchased separately.

With a RS-422 interface, the FC series is equipped to easily daisy-chain and synchronize communication with up to 4 stages.

Robust Design

The optimized aluminum body allows for extreme stiffness without compromising weight. The rigid body reduces deflection under load. Features of the FEM-Optimized FCR100 includes: robust construction of crossed roller bearing for high position accuracy and the stepper motor directly attached to the worm screw providing high output torque.

Metrology Report Included at No Additional Cost

Newport guarantees specification values which are measured and recorded following ASME B5.57 and ISO 230-2 standards. The typical performance values are two times better than the guaranteed specifications.
