New 3-Channel Servo Controller for Miniature Piezo Stick-Slip Drives and Linear Ratchet Actuators, by PI

Nanometer precision motion control for piezo inertia drives.

PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P., known industry-wide for nanometer precision motion components, systems, and solutions, announces the newest digital servo controller with 3-channels, offering greater flexibility for miniaturized precision positioning and handling tasks. Applications include precision alignment and automation, semiconductor technology, photonics, bio-nano-technology, metrology, microscopy, micro-manipulation.

The new E-873.3QTU 3-axis controller compliments the size of the ultra-compact positioners it controls, has integrated power amplifiers and interpolator, and is macro programmable for stand-alone functionality of each channel.
Data Recorder, Auto-Calibration ID Chip, Quick Start Up, Comprehensive Software Package
The E-873.3QTU is equipped with a data recorder for high speed tracing, ID chip compatibility for quick start-up and on-the-fly parameter changes, and exchange of system components without recalibration. The controllers are delivered with extensive software packages, including drivers for LabVIEW, as well as dynamic libraries for Windows and Linux. In addition, a powerful macro programming language is available, for automation tasks and stand-alone operation. Communication with a host PC is via modern interfaces, such as TCP/IP and USB. An optional joystick is available for manual operation.
