Micropositioning stage with embedded controller has 0.5 µm resolution, absolute position encoding
The M3-LS-3.4 Linear Smart Stage has a 15 mm travel range and moves loads of 200 grams (horizontal orientation) or 100 grams (vertical orientation). This is more than 2x longer travel and 10x greater force than our original M3-LS-1.8 micro positioning stage.
As with all M3 modules, the piezoelectric micro motor and all drive electronics are completely integrated in the tiny stage housing. There is no external control board, making it fast and easy to integrate into OEM instruments.
