PI, world renowned for its piezo-actuated fast laser beam steering mirror mounts, provides a very compact motorized kinematic mirror mount, the N-480 product family for laser applications with larger angular and lower-dynamic requirements. Driven by high resolution piezo motorized micrometer screws, angular steps as small as 0.3µrad in θXθY are feasible.
High Angular Stability
Due to the self-locking capabilities of the piezo motor actuators, the motorized kinematic mirror mounts provide excellent long-term angular stability, even when powered down. This is critical when optical paths need to be aligned and kept drift-free over long periods of time.
Tip/Tilt Angles and Aperture Sizes
The kinematic motorized mounts provide tip/tilt angles up to 16 degrees θX θY. They are available for mirrors and optics diameters of ½ inch, 1 inch, and 2 inches.
Standard and Vacuum Versions
The N-480 precision mirror mounts are available for ambient conditions and vacuum to 10-6 hPa available
The precision motorized kinematic mounts can be operated with the compact E-872.401 piezo motor controller.
