M3 Micro Motion Modules for Product Developers

Linear microstage M3-LS with embedded controller

M3-LS Linear Micro Stages

Linear piezoelectric “smart stages” have embedded drive electronics for smallest size and fast integration into handheld and portable instruments.

M3-LS Linear Stages

Autofocus module M3-FS with embedded controller

M3-FS, M3-F Focus Modules

Tiny, precision focus modules enable smaller instruments. Piezo motors and 3 VDC controllers are integrated into compact lens holders.

M3-F Focus Modules

M3-L Linear Actuators

Smart linear actuators have integrated piezo motors and closed-loop controllers to push or pull light objects.

Smart modules with built-in controllers

Smallest Size. Fastest Integration.

M3 smart modules have built-in controllers. No separate control board is needed! They are ready to plug-and-play directly with your system processor and 3-6 VDC power supply.

You achieve the smallest system size, fastest time to market, and lowest total cost.

How can we help you with embedded motion?

New Scale helps customers transform their large, expensive, complicated-to-use systems into small, affordable, easy-to-use instruments and devices. Our customers use M3 smart modules to adjust micro optics or mechanical components within handheld, portable and mobile systems.

M3 modules have micrometer precision, work on battery power, perform at any orientation and resist shock, vibration and temperature extremes. With all controls built in, they are the smallest, easiest-to-integrate solution for product designers creating miniaturized systems for a range of markets.

Products for Neuroscience Researchers

Multi-Probe MicroManipulator

Multiple silicon neural probes.

One simple manipulator system.

M3-LS Linear Smart Stages enabled rapid development of the MPM Multi-Probe Micromanipulator System: The first micromanipulator optimized for use with silicon probes. The compact MPM System provides convenient, automated positioning of multiple neural probes for acute in-vivo recording.
