What makes a SmartStage Linear Positioner unique?
A typical linear stage requires a bulky expensive external controller, motor drive circuit, feedback interpolation, limit and home input circuits, as well as multiple cables per axis. With a SmartStage positioner, the high performance controller and all hardware to position the stage are built-in. A SmartStage Linear Positioner delivers all this capability in an ultra-compact package.
What about the performance?
Dover Motion’s unique, patented stage architecture which embeds the encoder feedback circuit, limit and home sensors, digital I/O, 3 phase PWM drive, and high-performance controller inside the stage. By embedding what used to be multiple cables and external electronics, the control is seamless, and performance-optimized for low noise. The result is ultra-high stage performance with 5nm resolution and no backlash.
What else do I need to get started?
Just a power supply and computer! Dover Motion provides a user interface, software libraries, manuals, and code examples. Each stage is factory configured and tested to ensure the highest quality out-of-box performance.
