Mounting

You can mount the RSW series rotary stages by the three M6 or 1/4"x20 mounting holes on the bottom flange of the stage. There are also two M6 threaded holes on the sides of the stage available for mounting purposes. See the RSW web page for dimensions, technical specifications and other details.

Grounding

To prevent damage to the device due to static buildup, the device should be properly grounded.

Failure to ground the unit may result in the unit shutting down unexpectedly or ceasing to communicate with the computer. This problem can be minimized by not touching the unit during operation. If the unit fails due to static discharge, unplugging it and plugging it back in or sending a Restore Settings command will usually fix the problem.

Most Zaber devices are grounded via the shield wire of the data cables. This should normally provide a path to ground via the computer. For units which are being used without a computer, a ground lead should be connected to the shield of one of the data cables.
