M-041 - M-044 Tilt Stages

  • One & Two Axis Tilt Stages
  • Zero Backlash
  • Sub-µrad Resolution
  • Manual and DC Motor Drives
  • Optional PZT Drives for Tracking and Scanning

M-041 through M-044 are one and two axis tilt stages for small loads. They are spring preloaded for elimination of backlash and feature superior resolution and repeatability to goniometric cradles. Versions with PZT translators allow for ultra-high resolution dynamic scanning and tracking. (See "PZT Active Optics" section for fast, ultra-high resolution, tip/tilt platforms).

The basic versions (part number extension .00) are equipped with manual micrometer drives providing 65 and 80 µrad minimum incremental motion, respectively. The versions with extension .D0 are equipped with closed loop DC servo motor drives providing 15 and 12 µrad minimum incremental motion, respectively. A set of limit switches eliminates the possibility of overtravel.

For sub-µrad resolution and dynamic tracking or scanning, optional closed loop and open loop PZT drive upgrade kits are available (see "PZT Actuators" section for further details and recommended drivers). The PZT drives can also be ordered later to upgrade manual or motorized systems.
