Microscope Stage
Our stages have been attached to most microscopes. Optional with each stage system is a microscope specfic Z-Focus Motor Mount.

       The stage STR75xxx is a low cost rack and pinion, stepper motor driven, microscope stage that offers 7" x 5" of travel in a thin (19mm thick) X, Y stage. While controlled in open loop, The stepper motors provide for no servo jitter while still maintaining a positive return force at position. The stage has a maximum speed of 100mm/sec. The speed can be controlled via the USB (COM Port). The unit has a standard circular dovetail mount that allows it to easily attach to most microscopes. As always, we can add your custom design hole or bolt patterns (top or bottom) for you specific application. The X, Y stage provides 20um (5um unidir) repeatability with a submicron resolution. The unit also offers control of the Z-axis. The Motor mount is not included at the base price, but is an option. The Z-axis drive easily attaches to most microscopes and provides up to 0.05um resolution. The stage system comes with our standard XYZ controller. There are two configurations of the controller. A desk top unit with built in joystick and an under the desk unit with remote joystick. Either controller provides precise control of the X, Y axis speed through an exceptionally smooth joystick. The speed is proportional to joystick deflection with velocities from as slow as single steps to full traverse speed. Remote focus of the z-axis is provided via a focusing knob on the controller. The unit also provides three user selectable sensitivities for the joystick and Z-encoder for added control. The unit can be controlled manually or through USB (COM Port) serial commands. The controller provides a display of X, Y and Z coordinates locally on an LED display. These coordinates are also available via USB (COM Port). Each stage axis has a built in unique serial number and EEProm for various stage parameters. The stage STR44xxx is an economical unit that works well in a number of applications. It comes standard with a solid top.
