8MTF-200 - Motorized XY Microscope Stage
Motorized XY Microscope Stage
Zoom in
Printable version
View drawings
Designed for smooth and precise motion
200x200 mm travel range
205x205 mm central opening
Calibrated screw pair and guiding system
Very low-profile for its aperture and travel range
Custom adaptors are available upon request
Motorized XY microscope stage is ideal for transmissive and reflective imaging applications as well as processes which require access from above and below of the sample. Extremely low profile and compact design allow 8MTF-200 to be incorporated into many different types of scanning systems and easily mounted to most common microscope platforms.

1) With x4 evaluation; system can be delivered with standard analog SIN/COS encoder interface for personal interpolation.

2) Absolute Accuracy & Bi-Directional Repeatability measurements are processed with Zygo ZMI 501 Michelson laser interferometer.

3) Pitch & Yaw measurements are processed with 11D-ALI-COL electronic autocollimator. Resolution of 11D-ALI-COL: 1 µrad. Environment error: 1 µrad.

4) Maximum Velocity is electrically limited by encoder and driver CUT-OF frequency; maximum velocity is also limited by guiding system.

5) Maximum Acceleration is limited by Drivers` Peak Current, Motors` Peak Current and External Load (inertia). Please contact Standa for support.

6) Load Capacity is limited by position of load and integrated guiding system. Please contact Standa support for loading calculation.

7) Moving Mass is constant parameter of system which characterize m0 or inertia of unloaded system.

8) Recommended controllers & Recommended drivers can be optimized for a certain application. Please contact Standa support for recommendation.

9) Recommended power supply depends on required duty cycle and load. Please contact Standa support for recommendation.

10) Differential Outputs are available in passive (buffered) or active (modulated) way with LCMv2.

11) Stages can be assembled with better orthogonality by request.

12) Scalar Control can be implemented with USB / TCP-IP / RS-232 communication iterface; for vector control we recommend to use EtherCAT.

13) Protection of guiding system is limited and not supposed to be used in wet and dusty enviroment.
