P-725.xCDE2 PIFOC Focus Scanner For Microscope Objectives

P-725.xCDE2 PIFOC Focus Scanner For Microscope Objectives

The P-725.xCDE2 PIFOC Focus Scanner provides dynamic scanning with travel ranges of 100 µm, 400 µm, or 800 µm and significantly faster response and longer lifetime than motorized drives.

Outstanding lifetime due to PICMA® piezo actuators

The patented PICMA® piezo actuators are all-ceramic insulated. This protects them against humidity and failure resulting from an increase in leakage current. PICMA® actuators offer an up to ten times longer lifetime than conventional polymer-insulated actuators. 100 billion cycles without a single failure are proven.

Subnanometer resolution with capacitive sensors

Capacitive sensors measure with subnanometer resolution without contacting. They guarantee excellent linearity of motion, long-term stability, and a bandwidth in the kHz range.

High guiding accuracy due to zero-play flexure guides

Flexure guides are free of maintenance, friction, and wear, and do not require lubrication. Their stiffness allows high load capacity and they are insensitive to shock and vibration. They work in a wide temperature range.
