PI Launches Low Profile, High Speed Piezomotor Rotary Stage @ Photonics West Jan 22, 2010

PI introduces a new ultra-low profile (0.6”), direct-driven, high-speed rotary stage based on its proprietary PILine® piezomotor drive technology at this year’s SPIE Photonics West conference.

Fast, Self-Locking, Direct Drive, Direct Encoder
The M-660 stage reaches top speeds of 720 degrees/sec. and resolution to 40 µrad (8 arcsec). Its self-locking ceramic drive holds the position steady at rest, with no energy consumption and heat generation. A directly coupled precision optical encoder provides phase lag-free, backlash-free feedback to the servo controller.

Ceramic Drive Used in the Latest Generation Optical Instruments
The M-660 outperforms the stability, acceleration and settling speed of traditional servo motor direct drives and gear-driven mechanisms.
