Auburn, MA (PRWEB) July 07, 2014

Precision Motion specialist Physik Instrumente (PI) has introduced two new, vacuum compatible versions of its miniaturized N-470 PiezoMike precision screw-type actuators for opto-mechanical adjustments.

Providing a positional resolution of 20 nanometers and travel ranges between ¼ inch and 1 inch, the new actuators are available in high vacuum (HV, 10-6 Torr) and ultra-high vacuum (UHV, 10-9 Torr) configurations.

Both can be computer-controlled to simplifiy the automated adjustment of lasers, mechanical and optomechanical components. The PiezoMike actuator can be integrated into conventional mirror mounts or positioning stages for precisely aligning the beam path of optical assemblies.

When at rest, the drive is self-locking, requires no electric power and generates no heat. The high holding force of >100N (22 lbs) and its self-clamping design make it vibration-proof and shock-resistant.

Controllers
Several OEM and bench top controllers for up to 4 channels are available. Versions with USB interface include host software and LabVIEW drivers.
