Newport Intros Compact Piezo Motor Linear Stage
Piezo motor linear stage and controller.
Irvine, CA — Newport Corporation has introduced the newest member of the CONEX integrated stage and controller product series. The compact CONEX-AGP controller is preconfigured with an Agilis AG-LS25-27P linear stage that includes an innovative, miniature, built-in, direct-read linear encoder. The CONEX-AG-LS25-27P, which integrates both products, offers quick setup and control with closed-loop positioning performance at an affordable price.

This is the first of two specialized stage products to be released that combine an advanced piezo motor linear stage with the low-cost architecture of the CONEX controller family. The ultra-compact controller delivers sub-micron, bi-directional repeatability of 0.3µm, making it suitable for applications in confined spaces that require integrated, single-axis control. The linear stage is also very compact, capable of 27mm travel and 0.2µm metal-insulator-metal (MIM).

The controller's versatile deadband function allows the user to modify the closed-loop parameters to program the acceptable deviation from a position, and to hold that position steady. The new controller uses the simple and intuitive CONEX GUI, accessible via USB. For added convenience, the USB interface also supplies power to the controller which eliminates the need for additional power supplies and/or cables.
