Actuators, Rotation Stage
Dec 2011Newport CorporationRequest Info
Newport Corp.’s vacuum-compatible LTA series actuators and URS50B rotation stage are for research and industrial applications. Compatible with 10 x e—6 hPa (7 x 10 e—6 torr) vacuum, they are designed for integration into critical sample positioning or beam management processes in vacuum environments. The vacuum stage features a motor-mounted encoder that is useful in detecting the stall of a stepper motor because the stage is not accessible when installed inside a vacuum chamber. The encoder offers good position repeatability, a critical factor in many research and commercial applications in vacuum environments. With nonrotating tips, the LTAHSPPV6 and LTAHLPPV6 actuators are extensions of the LTA actuators and are rated at 10,000 h mean time between failures.
