Miniature Motorized Linear Stages : LSM Series Specifications
What You Really Need to Know:
- This device is designed to use our A-MCA controller , or you can use your own controller.
- The powerful A-MCA external controller means that the unit can go faster than the T-LSM, with more thrust.
- Very small size allows you to fit this stage into restricted spaces.
- Innovative and long-lasting bearing design lets you put up to 10 kg load on the stage and run up to 58 mm/s.
- Stage can be used in any orientation.
- Easily mounts into an XY or XYZ system.
1. Locking D-sub 15 connector plugs directly into A-MCA controller.
2. 200 step/revolution stepper motor, microstepped up to 256x (with A-MCA) to provide smooth and precise motion.
3. Hall-effect home sensor integrated into the stage.
4. Stage top: supports M3 and M6 threaded holes with M4 center mount; removable for lower XY profile.
5. 0.024in and 0.096in pitch lead-screws with anti-backlash nut allow the smallest incremental moves and faster motion.
6. Available in travel lengths from 25 to 200 mm, with user customized options available.
7. Multiple T-LSM stages can be assembled in XY or XYZ configuration without additional hardware.
8. Only 21 mm high and designed to fit into the smallest spaces.
With the A-MCA controller, Zaber's intuitive windows software makes it easy to control the speed and position of the unit, change the device settings and write custom scripts. For Labview users, we offer a free Labview certified driver. After completing a move command, the slide will report its position through the RS-232 link. For a detailed list of available commands see the A-MCA User's Manual .
The A-MCA’s indexed knob provides convenient manual control via user-selectable modes. In velocity mode, each increment of the knob increases or decreases the speed by a fixed amount. In displacement mode, each increment of the knob moves the device by a user-configurable distance. You can also issue a stop command by depressing the knob during any operation. During manual moves, our controllers constantly transmit motor or actuator position to the computer, so it can be displayed by the software.
