M-686 XY linear stages for microscopy are mainly designed for automated positioning applications. The form factor of the M-686 stage is optimized for a low profile height of 27 mm, footprint and mounting pattern fit directly together with many PI standard nanopositioning systems.
- Very high Stability
- Integrated Closed-Loop PILine® Ultrasonic Piezomotor Drives Provide High Speed to 100 mm/s
- Integrated Linear Encoders with 0.1 µm Resolution
- 25 x 25 mm Travel Ranges
- Low Profile
- Large Clear Aperture
- Self-Locking at Rest
- Compatible with PI Piezo Nanopositioning / Scanning Stages
Space Saving Piezo Linear Motors
Compared to conventional motorized linear translation stages, the M-686 provides a lower profile and smaller footprint. The compact PILine® piezoelectric linear motors and high-resolution linear encoders make both, the lead screw duct and the flanged, bulky stepper motor employed in traditional stages obsolete. In addition, the piezomotors are self-locking at rest and hold the stage in a stable position without heating up.
