Large Aperture Nanopositioning Stage

PI’s digital nanopositioning controllers can be quickly switched between focus tracking and closed-loop positioning, and also accommodate fast focus and freeze applications.

Auburn, MA (PRWEB) February 26, 2014

PI’s new P-736.ZR Large Aperture piezo nanopositioning stages are optimized for high resolution and very fast step and settle. They are designed for easy integration into high-resolution imaging and microscopy applications. The stages feature a very low profile a large aperture, and travel ranges of up to 220 µm with sub-nanometer closed-loop resolution–ideal for leading-edge surface metrology, microscopy and imaging applications.

The nanopositioning stages can be mounted on inverted microscopes from Nikon and Olympus. The large aperture easily accommodates accessories such as micro well plates and incubation chambers.

Included in the delivery is a compact digital servo piezo controller of the latest generation. A variety of fast user interfaces such as USB, SPI, RS-233 and even real time analog provide programmers with the flexibility they need in their integration process. The extensive, well-documented, interface-independent software support includes Windows .dll, Linux .so, and LabVIEW .llbs. PI’s digital piezo controllers can be quickly switched between focus tracking and closed-loop positioning, and also accommodate fast focus and freeze applications.

System Features:
-Large aperture for well plates and low profile for easy integration
-Fast step & settle
-Travel range 220 µm
-Outstanding lifetime due to PICMA® piezo ceramic stacks
-Piezoresistive sensors for lower cost
-Capacitive sensors for higher stability
-Digital controller with input for autofocus signals and fast focus and freeze
