Mini “All-In-One” Beam Steering
New Scale Technologies Inc.Request Info
The easy, all-in-one solution for beam steering: this rotary micro stage features a built-in controller for smallest size and elegant simplicity.
With a familiar galvo form factor, the piezo smart stage is just 12 mm diameter INCLUDING the closed-loop controller. This is more than 25x smaller than traditional systems with external controllers.
It also greatly simplifies integration into your system: you simply provide direct input of high-level motion commands from your system processor via standard digital (I2C, SPI, UART) or analog servo interface. No other electronics are needed.
Each smart stage rotates a pre-mounted aluminum-coated mirror +/- 20 degrees at up to 1100 degrees/second with angular resolution of 0.05 degrees (1 mrad). Patented piezoelectric motors along with position sensors, bearings, drive electronics and embedded firmware are all integrated into the miniature rotary stage.
This miniature beam steering system is ideal for precise, point-to-point beam steering and dynamic scanning up to 100 Hz. Its small size, 3.3VDC input and ease of use make it ideal for integration into portable and handheld systems. Applications include medical lasers and imaging systems, industrial measurement and spectroscopy instruments, and laser printing and engraving.
One-axis and two-axis beam steering developers’ kits are available.
