  • This device daisy-chains power with X-Series devices and data with any Zaber devices.
1. Control all units in the daisy-chain via serial port (with a locking X-SDC cable) or USB (with an X-USBDC cable).
2. Daisy-chain additional units with a locking X-DC02 cable or X-DC06 cable. Power can also be shared in the chain.
3. Integrated controller and 200 step per revolution stepper motor, microstepped up to 256x to provide easy-to-use, smooth and precise motion.
4. Stage top has metric M6 threaded holes as well as UNC #8-32 holes; centre lens holder fits 1" and 25 mm optics.
5. Holes on bottom and two sides provide flexible mounting options; can be mounted directly on other Zaber stages.

Zaber's X-Series devices have an indexed knob that provides smooth manual control at variable speeds in both directions for versatile operation, even without a computer. In velocity mode, turning the knob starts the device moving at a constant speed, and every increment increases or decreases the speed by a configurable amount. In displacement mode, each increment of the knob moves the device by a configurable distance. Pushing in the knob for 1 second switches between the modes. You can also issue a stop command by depressing the knob during any operation.

To control by computer, simply transmit on the USB 2.0 or RS-232 port a move command. Coupled with Zaber's intuitive software, it is easy to control the speed and position of the unit, change the device settings and write custom scripts.
