Designed for Cost-Sensitive ApplicationsAUBURN, Mass., Dec. 8 -- Nanopositioning manufacturer PI (Physik Instrumente) has introduced the new P-714 for high-speed XY-nanopositioning and scanning. The company says these ultracompact, piezo-driven stages were designed for cost-sensitive applications. They feature a very high-resonant frequency of 2.2 kHz for submillisecond response.
Integrated high-resolution position sensors and piezoelectric drives provide sub-nanometer resolution, important for high-resolution scanning, alignment and positioning applications. The tiny package of only 45 x 45 x 6 mm allows for easy integration into instrumentation. Transmitted-light applications such as microscopy benefit from the clear aperture.
The P-714 can be used in applications including scanning, alignment, imaging/resolution enhancement, microscopy and nanopositioning. Parallel kinematics direct drive with 2.2 kHz resonant frequency for faster settling and higher scanning rates, and the company says it features award-winning ceramic-encapsulated piezo drives for longer lifetime. A variety of standard and low-cost OEM controllers is available to drive these stages, according to PI.
