Once again, Photonics West 2017 in San Francisco was the gathering point of the worldwide optics and photonics industry. piezosystem jena was showcasing a variety of innovations to the audience at the show floor.
With PID auto-tuning we introduced a new software for users of piezo actuators. The program allows for auto-optimizing the settings of digital piezo controllers – once a big hassle, with this auto-tuning software effortless and fast. Another benefit is that the users can optimize performance by themselves and in their own application setups.
A lot of attention grabbed our vibration excitation and damping demonstration at the booth: A NanoX 200 was mounted onto a glass filled with liquid, making it vibrate at a high frequency. Another actuator – a PA/T – countered this vibration, so the liquid in the glass became calm once again. Our digital piezo amplifier d-Drivepro synchronized the amplitudes of both actuators in such a way that they cancelled each other out. A simple demonstration but very effective in illustrating the high frequency applications piezo actuators are used in and the high performance our piezo controllers can achieve. Vibrations damping is an application, piezo actuators are ideal for.
We would like to thank all visitors at our booth and hope to see you again next year. You do not want to wait that long? Just contact us. You can reach us via info(at)piezojena.com or call +49(0)364166880.
