Debuting as the newest member of the CONEX integrated stage and controller family, the CONEX-AGP is preconfigured with an Agilis AG-LS25-27P linear stage that integrates a direct-read linear encoder. The CONEX-AG-LS25-27P combines a piezo motor linear stage with the low-cost architecture of the CONEX controller family. The controller delivers sub-micron, bi-directional repeatability of 0.3 µm. The linear stage is capable of 27-mm travel and the controller’s deadband function allows modification of the closed-loop parameters to program the acceptable deviation from a position and to hold that position steady.
