Vacuum Compatible Motorised Linear Stage 8MT30V-50 is a newly developed stage, which incorporates all the improvements and modifications implemented since its predecessor 8MT173V-20-50 was launched. 8MT30V-50 replaces older stage 8MT173V-20-50. It boasts possibility to operate in any orientation, which means that the stage can be hung upside-down or be operated vertically with motor facing upward or downward. Durability of stage was taken seriously into consideration, vertical load capacity is increased to 1 kg. Stage is spring preloaded to eliminate backslash. Design of 8MT30V-50 ensures more stable and precise motion over full translation range. For vertical (Z axis) mounting we offer angle bracket 2AB173V-20-50. Angle brackets of custom design can be manufactured on request. Two mechanical limit switches built into each translation stage used for emergency stop at ends of travel range or to establish a reference position with accuracy of several motor steps (use E3 option for more accurate zero position setting, see Sensors). Motor position can be visually determined with accuracy of one step by reading a scale engraved on dial knob fitted on motor shaft (use Encoder for monitoring exact position using PC, see Sensors).Body and platform of 8MT30V are made of aluminum. Functional parts are made of steel.
Stage is equipped with 10-6 Torr vacuum compatible stepper motor, all mechanical parts are lubricated with High vacuum compatible grease. Aluminum parts are not anodized. Stages are cleaned in vacuum chamber and packed before dispatch, so that it can be immediately placed in vacuum chamber after purchase without spoiling the vacuum. Cleaning and packing not included in price.
High vacuum compatible Sub-D, male or female, 9 or 15 pin connectors can be ordered separately. The connectors are made of glass filled polymer with a stainless steel outer and suitable for High Vacuum (10-6 mbar) and temperatures up to 110°C.
