E-712 modular digital controller for nanopositioning systems with up to 6 axes

E-712 modular digital controller for nanopositioning systems with up to 6 axes

The use of real-time operating systems on the host PC allows it to communicate with other system components, e.g. a vision system, without time delays with discrete temporal behavior and high system clock rate. Physik Instrumente (PI), the leading manufacturer of piezoceramic drives and positioning systems, offers a real-time module as an upgrade option for the host PC and also the connection of the GCS (PI General Command Set) software drivers. The module is based on Knoppix-Linux in conjunction with a pre-configured Linux real-time extension (RTAI).
- A library which is 100% compatible with all other PI GCS libraries is used for the communication with the real-time system. All PI GCS host software available for Linux can be run on this system.
- The real-time system running in the real-time kernel can be used to integrate PI interfaces and additional data acquisition boards for control. Open functions to enable you to implement your own control algorithms are provided. Data, such as positions and voltages, is recorded in real time, and pre-defined tables, with positions, for example, are output in real time to the PI interface and to additional data acquisition boards.
- You can program your own real-time functions in C/C++, MATLAB/SIMULINK and SCILAB.
- The system includes a PI GCS server, which allows the system to be operated as a blackbox using TCP/IP, via a Windows computer, for example.
- The system can be installed on a PC or booted directly as a live version from the data carrier.
- A free demo version with restricted functionality is available.

Well-known for its high quality, PI has been one of the leading players in the global market for precision positioning technology for many years. PI has been developing and manufacturing standard and OEM products with piezo or motor drives for 40 years now. In addition to its three German factories, PI has eight subsidiaries and a total of over 500 employees worldwide.

New piezo nanopositioning system: versatile, fast and compact with large clear a …
Large clear aperture, high control dynamics, fast settling times and compact dimensions: PI launches a new product line of linear nanopositioning systems for a broad range of applications. The P-630 stages are perfectly suited, e.g. for use in sensor heads or precision motion of objects in optical and tactile metrology as well as for microstructuring. With travel ranges up to 80 µm and a direct piezo actuator drive, the compact positioning
2 mm Travel Range - 20 Milliseconds Settling Time: New Objective Scanner with Pi …
New microscopy methods, such as two-photon microscopy, make it possible to record 3D stacks with up to 1 mm depth in biological samples. For this they require high-performance drives for positioning the objectives. PI (Physik Instrumente) now developed the new N-725 PIFOC® objective scanner with piezo stepping drives especially for position-ing microscopy objectives. The N-725 provides travel ranges of up to 2 mm along the optical axis. At the same time
New Version of M-663 Micropositioning Stage: Benefits of PILine® Drive Technolo …
Cost-effective with 2 µm step size. PI (Physik Instrumente) completes its product line of high-velocity M-663 micropositioning stages. The new linear stage version M-663.5U is especially suited for positioning tasks in automation where a resolution of 0.6 µm and a step size of 2 µm are sufficient. The integrated PILine® linear motor provides push forces to 5 N and a maximum velocity of up to 250 mm/s over a 18 mm
Small Size and High Resolution: New Miniature Stage is Only 24 mm Wide at a Reso …
Physik Instrumente (PI) has introduced the new LPS-24 series. At only 24 × 33 × 20 mm³, these new miniature positioning stages provide a travel range of 15 mm with nanometer-precision resolution. The LPS-24 stages fulfil important requirements for the positioning of optical or mechanical components or for the adjustment and manipulation of samples in application environments with a confined space. For the LPS-24 series, PI uses NEXACT® piezo stepping drives. These
