Zaber's X-DMQ-DE Series devices are computer-controlled, voice coil driven, linear stages with high acceleration and precision capabilities in a compact size. They are stand-alone units requiring only a standard 24 V or 48 V power supply.
At only 30 mm high, these miniature stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-DMQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 1400 mm/s and loads up to 1 kg. Like all of Zaber's products, the X-DMQ-DE Series is designed to be 'plug and play' and very easy to set up and operate.
The built-in linear encoder with 200 nm resolution allows closed-loop servo control of position and velocity. Zaber's controller comes pre-tuned out of the box, while still allowing easy access to settings for users to fine tune the servo control to their application if desired. The DMQ's direct-drive actuator also allows it to operate in force-control mode with very high bandwidth. The innovative moving-coil actuator design has a very flat force-vs-position profile, a minimal moving mass for high acceleration, and no exposed moving cables.
An optional indexed knob provides convenient manual control for versatile operation even without a computer. These stages connect to the RS-232 port or USB port of any computer, and they can be daisy-chained with any other Zaber products. The daisy-chain also shares power, making it possible for multiple X-Series products to share a single power supply. Convenient locking, 4-pin, M8 connectors on the unit allow for secure connection between units.
