Stage Motor Technical Information

Stage Motors

All motorized Newport stages are optimized for use with Newport’s motion controllers and motor drivers to ensure plug-and-play compatibility, reliability and the ability to meet stated stage performance specifications. Occasionally, however, our controllers may not be appropriate for your specific application. In cases like these, the specific motor specifications are included in the motorized stage manual to facilitate using non-Newport controllers and drivers.

In so doing, Newport cannot guarantee achieving the published performance specifications or reliability and cautions users to ensure that all motion requirements are well understood before proceeding. To avoid accidental damage to Newport stages and motors, we do not recommend using this information unless you are very familiar with motion controller electronics and motor driver design. Please consult our Applications Engineers for more information.
