Economical Fast Focus Scanning Systems for Microscopy and Metrology Applications

Packages with controller, software, and nano-focus scanner offer an excellent price-performance ratio - new from PI.

Auburn, MA - PI, a global leader in nanopositioning instrumentation, has extended its PIFOC series of microscopy products by two new economical nano-focus scanner packages for applications including surface metrology, super-resolution microscopy, light sheet microscopy, digital slide scanning, etc.

Two scanning ranges are currently available, the P-725.1CDE1S offers 100µm and the P-725.4CDE1S offers 400µm. The fast scanners are based on a closed-loop piezo flexure design with capacitive position feedback for high linearity, stability, and repeatability. A compact digital controller with software is included.

• Travel range: 100 or 400μm
• Settling time: ≤ 19 or ≤ 35ms
• Point repeatability, 10% step, 1 sigma: ≤ 20nm
• Large clear aperture with Ø 29mm
• Outstanding lifetime thanks to PICMA® piezo actuators
• Nanometer resolution due to capacitive sensors
• High guide accuracy due to zero-play flexure guides
• Controller included
Industries Served

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
