Incremental Trigger Function

Trigger signals dependent on the position of the stage

Digital piezo-controllers from piezosystem jena (d-Drive and d-Drivepro) offer flexible control for customized systems such as cameras, illumination systems, optical shutters or external measuring systems.

Now, piezosystem jena can offer a comfortable trigger function. Trigger signals can be generated dependent on the position of the stage:

  • Rising edge
  • Falling edge
  • On both edges in the direction of the movement

An additional function sends out a trigger signal for a period of movement. This trigger-point can be shifted automatically as a free chosen and defined value. In connection with a camera or a controllable light source slow motion effects can be realized.

Application example

Pictures of an object should be recorded every 10 ms by using a MIPOS 500 micropositioning system. Totally 500 pictures should be generated. Total time for the task will be 5 sec. Single step of the MIPOS 500 system will be 100 nm (50 µm / 500 steps). Finally the piezo amplifier generates a trigger signal every 100 nm which operates the function of the camera.
