Nanopositioner PZ700 with increased life time and freedom from

After more than one year in long–term test the nanopositioner PZ700 from piezosystem jena do not show any abrasion or breakdown. The nanopositioner PZ700 is designed for dynamic, single axis positioning tasks of objects of all kind with a mass up to 300 g (0.7 lbs). Because of the quadratic, central aperture, the nanopositioner PZ700 is suited for positioning tasks, where the transmission of light is required or for fibers and wires.

During the long–term test, the nanopositioner PZ700 accomplished more than 100 million cycles at the maximum stroke of 700 µm and a load of 270 g (0.6 lbs). The actuator is driven by a rectangular input signal. Meanwhile, the mechanic components neither show wear nor signs of fatigue. The stroke does not change over the testing period, tilt is on a constant low level.

The nanopositioner PZ700 is characterized by a high number of cycles with constant parameters like tilt, low axial offset, stroke, repeatability etc. Other assets are the freedom of maintenance of the mechanical and electronical components. Therefore a long–term usage without any downtime is possible and the operating time is not disrupted.

Objective Positioners Adapted To Meet Your Needs For Industrial Applications
piezosystem jena has extended the objective positioner series MIPOS with two new industry products. Typically objective positioners are firmly mounted directly onto a microscope. Piezosystem also introduces two new systems, which can be screwed on a machine or rail. MIPOS 140: Most installed lens positioners require an undesired extension to the optical axis. The distance between the lens and the sample is shortened. This can lead to collisions between the optics and the
Incremental Trigger Function
Trigger signals dependent on the position of the stage Digital piezo-controllers from piezosystem jena (d-Drive and d-Drivepro) offer flexible control for customized systems such as cameras, illumination systems, optical shutters or external measuring systems. Now, piezosystem jena can offer a comfortable trigger function. Trigger signals can be generated dependent on the position of the stage: • Rising edge • Falling edge • On both edges in the direction of movement An additional function sends out a trigger

To offer you complete systems for your needs, piezosystem jena has engineered and produced a NEW series of Motion Control Stages and High-Power Piezo-Composite Actuators. The new catalog does not only show our proven, ultra-precise nanopositioning piezo stages for positioning with sub-nanometer accuracy and their appropriate controllers; it also incorporates our powerful Piezo-Composite Actuators and their
Beam Tracking with Mirror Tip- and Tilting Piezostage PKS1
In biology applications a laser beam is used for cell stimulation. First the laser beam is redirected onto 2 mirrors then directed to the cells. An important requirement, to hold the laser beam onto the cell is very difficult to achieve due to thermal effects or external vibration. The position of the laser beam needs to be controlled in real-time to track the motion of the cell. For this task a
