  • If you get stuck and need some advice, feel free to contact us.
  • This device daisy-chains power with T-Series devices and data with any Zaber devices.
1. A knob provides smooth manual control at variable speeds in both directions.
2. Control all units in the daisy-chain via serial port (with a T-DSUB9 adaptor) or USB (with a T-USBDC cable)
3. Daisy-chain additional units without additional cables. Power can also be shared in the chain.
4. All of Zaber's T-Series products have integrated stepper motor controller and motor driver.
5. 200 step per revolution stepper motor, microstepped up to 128x to provide smooth and precise motion.
6. Stage top supports Metric M6 threaded holes and Imperial 8-32 threaded holes.
7. T-LSR slides are available in a variety of travel lengths and lead screw pitches
8. T-LSR stages can be assembled in XY or XYZ configuration without additional hardware

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.

Zaber's T-Series devices have an optional knob that provides smooth manual control at variable speeds in both directions for versatile operation even without a computer. The movement speed increases as the knob is turned further, allowing a range from micrometers per second to the device's full speed. Return the knob to the center detent to bring it back to a stop. During a manual move, the device's position is constantly transmitted, allowing you to track its motion with software.
