Micro Motion System Claims Lowest Power Consumption

Self trumpeted as being the industry’s smallest and exhibiting the lowest power consumption, the SQUIGGLE RV linear drive system consists of a SQL-RV-1.8-6-12 piezo motor and NSD-2101 drive chip. Allegedly, the combo delivers performance comparable to larger systems at 40% less power and under one-fourth the size. Also, the system is reportedly the industry’s first miniature piezo motor drive system with a driver chip that is smaller than the motor and driven directly from battery power as low as 2.3V. The motor measures 2.8 mm x 2.8 mm x 6 mm while the driver measures 1.8 mm x 1.8 mm. In terms of support, DK-RV-1.8 series developer kits include all hardware as well as Pathway development software with scripting capabilities. Open-loop kits contain an SQL-RV-1.8 micro motor and NSD-2101 driver and closed-loop kits add a TRACKER NSE-5310 linear encoder. Developer kits are available starting from $495.
