Zaber's XY stages are made up of 2 linear stages. They come packaged with all the accessories you will need to operate them in XY configuration. The XY stages are powered by a standard power supply and connect to the RS-232 port of any computer.
For more details on the specific stages used in each XY stage, visit the following pages:
To control stage position, simply transmit on the RS-232 port the unit number of the axis that you want to move, a simple move command and the position desired. After the move, the axis will report its position through the RS-232 link. Click here for the XY 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 the maximum speed. During a manual move the slide constantly transmits its position so the controlling computer can track it.
