Simplifying Motion Control

X-BLQ-E Series: Closed-loop, belt-driven linear stages with built-in stepper motors, motor encoders, and controllers

We recently released the X-BLQ-E, a new and improved closed-loop, belt-driven motorized linear stage with built-in motor encoder and controller. If you are looking for the A-BLQ-E, please see the A-BLQ-E page.

  • 70, 145, 295, 445, 595, 1045, 1495, 2095, 3000 mm travel
  • Up to 2.0 m/s speed, 20 N thrust, and 20 kg load capacity
  • Encoder position feedback with slip/stall detection and automatic recovery
  • Built-in controller; daisy-chains with any other Zaber products

Zaberís X-BLQ-E Series products are computer controlled, belt-driven linear stages with integrated stepper motors and controllers. A built-in motor encoder allows closed-loop operation with slip/stall recovery features. They are stand-alone devices requiring only a standard 48 V power supply for operation.

An indexed knob provides convenient manual control for versatile operation even without a computer. The stages connect to the USB 2.0 and RS-232 port of any computer and can be daisy-chained with up to 254 Zaber products per chain. Convenient locking, 4-pin, M8 connectors on the unit allow for secure connection between units. The chain also shares power, so multiple X-Series products can use a single power supply.

With travel lengths up to 3 m, 10 Ķm repeatability, and a maximum speed of 2.0 m/s, X-BLQ-E stages are perfect for rapid positioning over large distances.

Zaber's positioners with built-in controllers, stand-alone controllers, and joysticks are divided into three series: the T-Series, the A-Series, and the X-Series. Please refer to our Series Reference Table for more information.
