M-231 is an ultra-high resolution closed-loop servo motor linear actuator providing linear motion up to 17 mm with sub-micron resolution in a compact package. It consists of a lead screw driven by a closed-loop DC motor/gearhead combination with motor shaft mounted high resolution encoder (2048 counts/rev).
The M-231 compact closed-loop linear actuator was especially designed to fit compact translation stages (such as the M-105) and F-110 piezoelectric fiber alignment stages as a direct replacement for a manual micrometer. See this overview for additional miniature precision linear stages.
M-231 high precision linear actuators provide a cost effective solution for industrial and OEM environments. They feature a low stiction/friction construction allowing for minimum incremental motion of 100 nanometers at speeds up to 2.5 mm/sec.
