IPZ-3000 Series Piezo Z-Axis Top Plate Insert
About the IPZ-3000 Series
The IPZ-3000 series piezo inserts will fit in most microscope stages with the standard 110 mm x 160 mm (K-size) stage insert opening. The piezo insert uses the same proven technology as ASI’s PZ-2000 series piezo top plate stages but allows for a simpler retrofit to obtain piezo-Z focus control on systems where there is already an existing XY stage. Several sample holders are available that fit the IPZ-3000 inserts for holding small dishes, slides or chambers. The piezo insert can be controlled with the MS-2000 closed loop controller, providing both USB and RS-232 communication to a host computer. Users with an ASI XY stage can upgrade their existing MS-2000 controller to run the IPZ-3000.
