  • Controller


    The Piezoconcept controller includes ultra low noise and highly linear electronics, closed-loop control (PID) leading to a movement free of positioning errors.
    Our controller offers three different ways of control that can be used simultaneaously :
    • Voltage control : an analogue input (BNC) located on the front panel of the controller allows to control the position of the stage by using voltage. Different ranges are possible : (0-10V, -5V/+5V, or -10V/+10V)
    • As an option, the USB interface allows to control the position of the stage by using a computer. The USB connector is located on the front panel of the 1-axis controller or on the back panel of the 2/3 axis controller. It comes with 4 TTL outputs ( that can be configured also as inputs)
    • As an option, it is also possible to control the position manually by using a 10-turns potentiometer located on the front panel. This option comes as standard on the 1-axis controller.
    1 axis Contoller
    1 Axis Controller
    2 axis Controller2 Axis Controller
    3 axis Controller PRIO3 Axis Controller

    Main characteristics of the USB interface :

    - Four channels DAC : depending on the number of axis, one, two or three channels are used. Upon request, the remaining DAC(s) can be used to send a command voltage (through a BNC) to an external device.

    - Four channels  ADC : depending on the number of axis, one, two or three channels are used. Upon request, the remaining ADC(s) can be used to acquire a signal between 0 and 10V (through a BNC) from an external device.

    - Four TTL outputs (through BNC). Upon request, those can be also configured as inputs

    - Computer waveform generation and position data logging with internal memory for up to 65000 positions

    Advanced scanning mode 

    Our USB interface offers full scanning functionnalities  :

    - SWIFT mode : 1D Line scan, 2D Image scan, 3D Volume scan

    - FRAP mode : With this mode, you can get the system to scan over the area of a polygon. As an example, in Micromanager, you can draw regions of interest on an image. You can then control the piezostage through the MM device adapter.

    - Arbitrary 3D laser writing mode : This mode is ideal to scribe a photoreactive material.

      Software compatibility 

    Our controller is supported by almost any softwares on the market :
    • Labview
    • Micromanager
    • C/C++ (DLL are provided)
    • NIS Element
    • Visiview
    • Metamorph
    • Matlab
    • Python
     

    Compatible operating systems : 

    • Windows
    • LINUX
    • Mac OS X
      All of our piezostages are also compatible with all the controllers of ASI Imaging  :
    - The MS2000 (can support only 1-axis stage)
    - The Tiger Controller (can support any multi-axis stages)
  • Manual stage


    The manual Microstage we offer has been designed to be a very stable base for our nanopositioners. It offers 25mm travel along X and Y and it is proposed for any inverted microscopes (ZEISS, OLYMPUS, NIKON, LEICA). A blocking force of 20N has been implemented into this system so that it doesn't move at the nanometer level even if an high-speed piezostage oscillates on top of it. Standard Microstage are often not able to reach that performance (presence of oscillations or drifts).

    Optional wings or an optional breadboard (with threaded M6 holes on a 25mm pattern or 1/4-20 holes on a 1 inch pattern) can be also provided.

  • Customized products & OEM


    At very low extra cost, we can customize most of our products to give the best solution for your application.

    For example, it is possible to change the range of motion of one or more axis and/or change dimensions of the central aperture. Indeed, we can provide nanopositioning stage with 10 to 500 microns range of motion on X, Y, Z. For the central aperture, all dimensions (up to 160X110mm) are possible

    To start with, we will ask information regarding your exact requirements such as :

    – Number of axis

    – Travel range on each axis

    – Size of the aperture

    – Space restriction

    – Speed requirement (type of signal, frequency)

    – Mass of the sample to be moved

    – Environment (vacuum, humidity, temperature, magnetic field, etc, )

    – USB interface or analogue controller needed (OEM electronics are also available)

    In a second step, based on  this information, we will design your system by using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) method in order to find the best compromise to match your needs.

    Finally, we will send you the specifications of the customized product, an image and a drawing.

    For large quantity OEM, we generally send a prototype stage in order to validate the design which we offer.
