Product Spotlight April: The PENTOR
The PENTOR is a 5-axis piezo system for a large variety of nanopositioning purposes. This piezo stage offers motion of the X,Y and Z-axis as well as tilt along two orthogonal axis. The PENTOR was developed especially for complex optical applications and setups. Hence, the actuator is equipped with a central 17 millimeter aperture to direct light through it.
The movement range of the X, Y and Z-axis is 100 µm, the tilt of the two orthogonal axis ± 2 mrad. Solid state flexure hinges in the 3D-axis allow for highly parallel motion without mechanical play. The tilt system is temperature compensated thanks to the use of the NanoX construction method by piezosystem jena. Changes in the surrounding temperature have no influence on the tilt angle. Upon request, the PENTOR can be outfitted with a strain gauge measurement system to avoid negative effects of hysteresis and drift during closed loop operation.
The PENTOR is ideal for scanning and life science applications as well as beam steering. To control this piezo stage, the digital amplifiers d-Drive and d-Drivepro by piezosystem jena are recommended.
