PI offers two basic motorized long travel XY stage designs and one manual XY stage. Both the U-780 XY stage (up to 135x95mm) and U-760 XY (25x25mm) are based on low profile, self-clamping, direct-drive ceramic motors that use ultrasonic piezo technology. This drive technology achieves a very wide, vibration-free dynamic range from micrometers/second to 100mm/second. At rest the motors are self-clamping, providing exceptional stability for long term imaging.
The U-780 stage is available for the Nikon Eclipse Ti / Ti2, the Leica DMI6000 / DMI8 microscope and the IX, IX2, and IX3 microscope from Olympus (here with 100x75mm travel).
The smaller U-760 stage (25x25mm travel) is compatible to the above mentioned inverted microscopes from Nikon and Olympus. Both stages (U-780 and U-760) are offered with a suitable controller (C-867.2U2) and a USB joystick.
