PI presents the new V-52X family of compact high-speed, voice-coil linear motor stages as part of its PIMag series. These stages are equipped with a linear encoder for direct position measurement and choice of cable exit direction, and achieve significantly higher dynamics than stepper or servo motor-driven positioners. They are ideal for industry and research scanning applications such as biotechnology, laser beam control, optics scanning, lens testing, and fiber optics.
With travel ranges of 5mm, 10mm, 20mm, and a maximum velocity of 250mm/s, the frictionless drive of the V-52x series ensures high accuracy and long life. Scanning frequencies up to 10 Hz can be achieved, depending on the load and scanning range. The stages also feature an integrated optical linear encoder and precision crossed roller bearings with anti-creep cage assist, very low moving mass, and no moving cables.
Additional features and advantages include:
