- 13 and 28 mm travel
- 10 kg load capacity
- Up to 6.5 mm/s speed and up to 15 N thrust
- Built-in controller; daisy-chains data and power with other T-Series products
An XY configuration makes an excellent microscope stage, especially when combined with our X-JOY3 joystick controller allowing manual control of both X and Y or XYZ axes from a single interface as well as allowing microscope stage positions to be saved and recalled at the touch of a button. T-LS stages are also commonly used in micromanipulator applications.
The T-LS stage is great for a lot of applications, but it has some limitations:
- The stage top can deflect up to 0.5 mm away from the motor under a force of 15 N. When the load is released, the stage top springs back to its original position. Consider this when pulling forces such as lifting a weight in a vertical configuration with the motor end facing upward. This isn't a factor in most horizontal applications.
- It is more delicate, less accurate, and has lower performance specifications than the X-LSM.
If either of these issues are of concern to you, consider purchasing a X-LSM Series stage instead.
Note: For applications with lighter loads, you can get up to 60 mm of travel by using the T-LA linear actuators with TSB translation stages. For even longer travel and heavier loads, we recommend using the X-LSM motorized linear slides.
Specification Charts and Notes
Thrust or torque is a function of speed. The values given above are maximums. These values cannot both be achieved simultaneously (i.e. at maximum speed, the unit will not produce maximum thrust).
When powering multiple units from an unregulated power supply, the voltage and thus the available thrust will be reduced. To achieve the thrust specified above, each unit should have its own power supply.
