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.  This innovative approach is covered by US Patents 10,374,530 and 10,367,436.

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.
