Summary Box:


The M3-RS-U-360 Rotary Smart Stage offers precise, point-to-point positioning or dynamic scanning up to 100 Hz.The rotary microstage in this kit offers continuous 360 degree rotation at up to 1100 degrees per second with accuracy of 0.25 degrees.

The kit includes one M3-RS-U-360 Rotary Smart Stage Positioning Module with embedded controller and straight FPC, Breakout board, USB adapter, New Scale Pathway™ Software.

Please note that mirrors are not included in this kit, for this see the DK-M3-RS-U-1/2M-20 kits.
