  • M3 Micromechantronic Module
Mar 2010
New Scale Technologies Inc.Request Info
VICTOR, N.Y., March 25, 2010 – New Scale Technologies Inc. has announced its M3 micro-mechatronic module design platform for rapid development of custom closed-loop microactuator modules.

Building on proprietary miniature Squiggle motor and Tracker position sensor technology, the platform yields a complete closed-loop actuator on a printed circuit board measuring =12 × 30 mm. Modules have low power consumption and 3.3-V input voltage for battery-powered operation. No external control board is necessary, and simple serial commands drive an onboard proportional integral derivative controller using a standard I2C, SPI or USART interface.

Modules based on the platform are suitable for high-resolution positioning in miniature optical instrumentation, lasers and photonics systems, aerospace controls and biomedical systems. It comprises a 1.8 reduced voltage Squiggle RV micromotor, a motor driver and a Tracker position sensor (encoder), all mounted on a miniature printed circuit board.

Features of a linear drive system based on the platform include 0.5-µm position resolution, up to 50-g force load, 10-mm/s speed and up to 20-mm travel range.
