The patented P-653 piezo motor linear slide manufactured by PI (Physik Instrumente) LP operates at 200 mm/s with millisecond responsiveness. Travel range is 2 mm, and force generation is to 0.15 N. The developer’s kit plugs into a USB port and is supplied with control software. The nonmagnetic miniature ceramic motor is a true linear motor slide and produces no rotary conversion losses. It is self-locking, preassembled and mounted on a printed circuit board running on 5 VDC. The piezo motor drive is 8 mm long and comprises only four parts.
