Picomotor™ Compatibility Guide with Manual Positioners

Many Newport manual positioning products can be motorized by using Newport motorized precision actuators. When very high precision, nano-scale linear positioning is required, a Piezo motor actuator should be considered. Once a manual positioner is chosen for an application, use the table below to select the appropriate Piezo actuator. To see Newport's full offering of Piezo actuators, start at the Piezo Linear Actuators page.

Compatibility Key

  Fully compatible
  Compatible but may require standard interface adaptor and/or include small performance limitation
  Call your local sales office or contact us online (877-835-9620 in the U.S.).2
  Not compatible or recommended3
  1. In some cases, one must limit the travel range of actuators and these are specified in the note when the green dot is clicked.
  2. 'Yellow' may require custom interface adaptor or may include significant performance limitations in terms of travel length, load capacity and etc. Please check out the corresponding technical notes for PZA12, TRA and TRB Series, and LTA Series
  3. For TRA Series Actuators (TRA6, TRA12, TRA25), only one TRA model is chosen as "Green" in most cases due to the travel length requirement. (eg. TRA6 or TRA25 can still be compatible with 460A-X but not recommended as TRA12 is an ideal choice with its 12mm travel range)
