NPS-XYZ-100A/15A Three Axis Stage

NPS-XYZ-100A/15A Three Axis Stage

The NPS-XYZ-100A/15A Three Axis Stage option incorporates an integrated Z axis stage to provide a solid XYZ arrangement. This arrangement offers over 100 microns of closed loop travel in x and y with over 15 microns of closed loop travel in the z axis.

The flexible modularity of the Queensgate NanoMechanisms result in a number of possible XYZ combinations, each with specific features that make them suitable for different types of high resolution microscopy. Each of the products has Ultra-low parasitic rotations and out of plane motion, superb repeatability and simple image calibration.

Coupled with a range of interfacing options to our closed loop digital controller, this system provides a sophisticated and easy to implement solution for new and existing users of high resolution microscopes.

The NPS-XYZ-100A/15A is made up from the NPS-XY-100A, NPS-Z-15A and interface bracket which allows selection of four different installation configurations each offering different sample placement.
