12V40 Controller – Description
The 12V40 controller is designed for piezoelectric actuators used in nano-positioning tasks for industrial applications. Different types of casing, with and without screw slots, and a 19″ rack mount version are available.
The 12V40 requires a main supply voltage of 12 V DC. The piezo controller offers the user the choice to control a piezoelectric element manually or via analog modulation input with a signal of 0 to 10 V DC – with a nearly unlimited step resolution. To support industrial use, all operational elements from the front panel are also available on the rear panel. All sockets are also available on the back so that the amplifiers can be easily integrated into an OEM product line. The output voltage can be supervised on the monitor output. Special circuits are integrated to protect the piezo element from voltage spikes and excessive voltages.
These amplifiers are well suited for sub-nm positioning tasks due to a very low voltage noise of only 0.3 mV rms.
|Output Voltage||V||-10 … 150||-10 … 150|
|Output Current (continuous)||mA||40 mA||40 mA|
|Voltage Noise||mVrms||< 0.3 at 500 Hz||< 0.3 at 500 Hz|
