piezo actuator of the series HP

piezosystem jena, one of the leading providers of nano positioning systems has just expanded its product range, and can now offer even more solutions for customer applications. With immediate effect high power actuators are available, along with our standard long-lasting low voltage piezo elements.

This new series provides a travel of up to 260 microns. The major advantage of these actuators is the high load, which can be now easily handled. Positioning applications with a load of up to 70,000 N, a tensile force of maximum 6,000 N and the force generation up to 50,000 N can be accomplished. Obtaining a resolution of less than one nanometer the new systems combine power and precision. The resolution of the actuator is only limited by the stability (e.g. noise) of the electronics. The resonant frequency of up to 60 kHz, and extreme high accelerations of >100.000 m/sec² allow for the use in many highly dynamic applications.

The operating temperature range of -60°C to +120°C enables the system to work reliably at extreme temperatures. As an option we can also deliver a low temperature or high vacuum design.

For positioning tasks which require the highest accuracy the actuators can be equipped with a feedback system (strain gauge).

All the characteristics of this new series allows piezosystem jena to offer now products to many other applications, e.g.

- active vibration cancellation
- sensor testing
- positioning
- stabilization
- shock wave generation
- test and acceleration damping
- fuel junction

as well as all the various applications that require positioning of high loads, and extreme accelerations respectively.

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
New Product-Catalog from piezosystem jena

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
