M-687 XY Motorized Microscope Stage with High Precision Closed Loop Piezo Motor from Physik Instrumente

The M-687 reference-class XY microscope stage includes a joystick and a controller. It also has a 160 x 110 mm clear aperture. It has a high-resolution piezo linear drive, which is self-locking at rest, has a low noise level, has high stability due to low thermal load and no need for lubricants. Large dynamics range of 10 µm/s to 100 mm/s and is suitable for operation via joystick and automated high-content methods. It has a direct-metrology linear encoder and high resolution and repeatability.
