Summary

M3-LS micro stage developer’s kits provide easy evaluation and prototyping with M3-LS Linear Smart stages.  

Description:

The M3-LS Linear Smart Stage is a direct-drive, high-precision micro stage with built-in controller. It is designed for fast, simple integration into miniature OEM systems. This “smart stage” has all drive electronics integrated right into the compact stage housing – no external board needed! It offers unmatched precision, stability and ease of use.   

Two different developer kits are available for the M3-LS module, with two diffrerent travel ranges.

Kit includes:

  • One M3-LS-3.4-15 Linear Smart Stage
    – micro positioning stage with integrated controller
  • One M3-USB USB adapter
  • Breakout board
  • 6VDC power supply
  • New Scale Pathway software
  • Cables
  • Mounting hardware kit
  • Multi-axis brackets (only with multi-axis options - XY, XZ, XYZ)

Developer's Kit with 6 mm travel micro stage - DK-M3-LS1.8-6

Kit includes:

  • One M3-LS-1.8-6 Linear Smart Stage
    – micro stage with integrated controller
  • One M3-USB USB adapter
  • One M3-1.8-0-deg-250 straight flex cable, 250 mm length
  • One M3-1.8-90-deg-250 angled flex cable, 250 mm length
  • New Scale Pathway software
  • Mounting hardware kit
