Nanopositioning controller line-up with the new 24-Bit USB interface (top to bottom): E-621 card, E-625 (bench-top), E-665 display controller and 12 x E-621 in an E-500 chassis

Auburn, MA, Piezo system specialist PI is switching to a new generation of 24-bit resolution, nanopositioning stage controllers. The new controllers will enable better than 100 picometers command resolution for even the latest generation, long-travel, piezo nanopositioning systems (1 mm and up), such as the PIHera™ series closed-loop flexure stages. The use of 24-bit converters represents more than 2 orders of magnitude improvement over the still widely used 16-bit converters.

USB Interface, 1 to 12 Channels, Many Variations
The new controllers feature a high speed USB interface and come in a variety of bench-top, rack-mount and OEM card versions from single-channel units for simple linear actuator applications, to multi-axis system controllers with 12 channels per rack.

Features and Advantages
 Integrated USB Interface, 24 bit converters for higher position resolution.
 Additional RS-232 interface for compatibility with industrial controllers
 Extensive software libraries & GUIs; support for LabView, Matlab, text-based programming languages
 Analog interface for compatibility with NI cards and analog control signals
 Network capability with up to 12 channels for multiaxis positioning applications
 Choice of position feedback sensors: capacitive for highest precision and piezoresistive / strain gauges for cost sensitive applications
 Integrated servo controller with notch filter for higher bandwidth
 User programmable data tables for random waveform generation

Extensive Software Support, Hardware-Independent Command Set
The new piezo controllers come with Windows installation software, DLLs and LabVIEW drivers. The extensive command set is based on the hardware-independent General Command Set (GCS), common to all PI micro & nanopositioning systems. GCS reduces the programming effort in the face of complex multi-axis positioning tasks or when upgrading a system with a different PI controller.
