Features

Compact Controller and Stage

In terms of size, the CONEX-CC controller is comparable to a deck of cards. Depending on the motor type, up to 3 CONEX-PP or 6 CONEX-CC can fit on a CONEX-BP baseplate. Both controller and stage are compact and ideal for space-confined or access-limited applications.

Actuator Variety

4 different actuators are available to choose from to address critical parameters that fit a variety of applications or simply to motorize manual devices. For example, the MIM differs from 50 to 200 nm. On the other hand, speed ranges from 0.4 mm/s to 5 mm/s and travel range varies from 6 mm to 50 mm.

Micromanager

CONEX-CC drivers are available for µManager. µManager is a software package for control of automated microscopes. Together with the image processing application ImageJ, µManager provides a comprehensive, freely available, imaging solution. For the micro-Manager software, please download their latest nightly build here.

Open source micro-Manager software is available for the CONEX-CC controller/driver.

Scalable Architecture

The CONEX-Actuator units can be connected via daisy chain to create either multi-axis DC systems or multi-axis PP systems. For added convenience, the power can be shared with up to 5 CONEX-CC modules using the optional CONEX-PS-CB power chain cable. This allows for a convenient low cost multi-axis system. Additionally, analog and digital inputs can be implemented into the controller through the CONEX-IOD.

Out-of-the-box Control

For out-of-the box control, the CONEX controller is preconfigured and delivered with the motion device. To start moving a sample or sensor, it simply requires plugging in the power supply, connecting the USB communication and starting the free motion GUI.

Linear Amplifier in DC Units

The low-noise linear amplifier of the CONEX-CC provides the optimum drive solution for low-power DC motors; delivering smoother motion, with less electrical noise and significantly less motor heating.

Simple Programming with Extensive Language Options

Advanced application programming is simplified by using mnemonic ASCII commands. Newport provides a free GUI that allows the user to access and execute over 60 intuitive ASCII commands. Alternatively, additional drivers are available for other languages including LabVIEW™ drivers and communication DLL’s.

USB Communication with PC

Communication with the CONEX controller and PC is achieved via the integrated USB interface, providing a fast ubiquitous communication protocol. For OEM's or security sensitive applications, RS-232 and RS-485 are embedded onto the controller.
