positioning actuator PX 500 - piezo based flexure stage
piezosystem jena, provider of piezo electrical stages for micro- and nanopositioning, designed the PX 500 piezo positioning stage as an ideal solution for positioning applications that require fast, accurate opening and closing.
With the dimensions 48x20x8 (lxwxh) mm³ the PX 500 is capable of generating a travel range of more than 500 µm. The integrated pre-load is applied by the use of a special steel spring. Therefore, this system is suitable for dynamic applications with a very short response time. The unloaded resonant frequency is 418Hz.
The maximum driving voltage of the piezo electrical ceramic is 130 V DC.A flexible polyimide insulation material, used only by piezosystem jena, covers the ceramic. This coating is designed specifically for better reliability in high speed applications.Two apertures with a diameter of 2.2mm are located on both sides. This allows for easy installation into an existing system.
The voltage signal noise is the only limiting factor in the resolution of piezoelectrical positioning systems. This means the system is extremely well suited for high precision positioning with nanometer accuracy.
