New NPXY200-401 Nanopositioner from nPoint

Published on March 26, 2014 at 7:41 AM

The NPXY200-401 nanopositioning stage from nPoint is a piezo driven, flexure guided stage, designed for high speed and nanometer precision. The stage has a large aperture (68mm X 68mm) yet is very thin (17mm). With a position noise of 0.7nm the NPXY200-401 provides the accuracy necessary for today’s advanced applications. When paired with the LC.402 DSP controller, the system provides closed-loop capability via capacitive sensors.

The NPXY200-401 has travel of 200µm in both the X and Y axis and with the large aperture, creates a great deal of flexibility for incorporation in optics and nanotechnology systems. A resonant frequency of 500Hz allows for fast scanning and settling times less than 8ms.
