PI has launched the P-630 range of linear nanopositioning systems with large clear aperture, high control dynamics and compact dimensions.
With travel ranges up to 80 µm and a direct piezo actuator drive, the compact positioning stages reach high scanning frequencies and settling times of only a few milliseconds.
At a width of only 50 mm, its clear aperture is relatively large with a diameter of 30 mm.
The drive technology of the highly dynamic piezo nanopositioning systems is based on all-ceramic insulated PICMA piezo actuators.
They have a proven longer lifetime and higher reliability than conventional polymer-insulated actuators.
The P-630 stages achieve nanometer-precise positioning accuracy and stability is using an integrated capacitive position sensor.
Optimum control properties are ensured via the high performance single-channel E-709.CHG Motion Controller.
Its digital technology allows for refined linearisation algorithms to improve accuracy; the operating parameters can easily be optimised via software.
