piezo-nanopositioner: nanoMIPOS 400 CAP with digital performance
piezosystem jena has expanded the MIPOS series with the introduction of the nanoMIPOS 400 CAP. For the first time ever, this large range of outstanding micro-objective focusing devices will be available in a digital version. The nano positioner provides a travel of 450 microns with nanometer resolution.
The special bidirectional nanoX flexure design allows for a highly dynamic and extremely accurate guidance. The integrated positioning sensors guarantee long-term stable positioning, free of drift and hysteresis. The digital micro objective nanopositioner is operated with digital electronics which offer the excellent advantages of the ASI- and ASC-function. The ASI-function (Automatic Sensor Identification) allows piezo actuators with positioning sensors to be completely interchangeable with control electronics of the same type. Recalibration of the system is no longer necessary.
The ASC-function (Automatic System Calibration) enables an identification of the nanoMIPOS 400 CAP and its calibration information. This data is stored in the positioner itself and is immediately activated after the electronics have been changed.
With an integrated function generator, which contains standard values for frequency, amplitude, offset and so on, functions such as sine and triangle can be implemented. Depending on the application, the digital controller allows in-situ adjustment of the PID parameter, notch filter parameter, and rise limitation. This means that the nanoMIPOS 400 CAP can be easily optimized in different "trial and error" scenarios.
With these outstanding features, the system satisfies the high precision demands in biology, medicine, and laser technology. Due to the excellent mechanical features, the nanoMIPOS 400 CAP can be easily adapted in upright and inverse microscopes. As with all MIPOS systems from piezosystem jena, the nanoMIPOS can be used with any thread types from W0.8x1/36, to M25x0.75, and even M32x0.75 with the use of a thread-flex-adapter. This feature emphasizes the universal applications of the MIPOS-systems.
