Zaber's T-LSR series products are computer controlled motorized linear stages with a variety of lead screw pitches and travels. They are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 15V power supply. A potentiometer knob at the end of the unit permits smooth manual control; turn it fully to get maximum speed. The stages connect to the RS-232 port of any computer and can be chained with up to 254 units per chain. They can also be chained with any other T-Series products. Convenient 6-pin mini din cables on the unit allow for direct interconnection between units in close proximity. For longer distances, standard cable extension can be used.
To control slide position, simply transmit on the RS-232 port the unit number of the slide you want to move, a simple move command and the position desired. After the move, the slide will report its position through the RS-232 link. For a detailed list of available commands see the T-LSR User's Manual .
An optional knob at the end of the unit permits smooth manual control. Turn the knob a little and the unit will move at microns per second. Turn it fully to get a maximum speed of 20 mm/s. During a manual move the slide constantly transmits its position so the controlling computer can track it.
