Summary

The M3-L is a miniature high-resolution positioning system. It is a “smart” actuator with integrated driver and closed-loop controller inside the actuator.  

Description:

The M3-L is a linear actuator and requires careful attention to loading under static and dynamic conditions. More information including integration guide and CAD file are available for download (registration required). If you are developing or buying a translation stage to use with the M3-L actuator, consider the M3-LS Linear Smart Stage instead. This precision microstage has very high lateral stability, very low and uniform friction, and built-in absolute encoding. The actuator and controller are built into the stage for smallest size and optimal performance. For push/pull actuator nodes please see the DK-M3-L developer kit.
