MS-2000 Small XY Stage

About the MS-2000 Small Stage

The MS-2000 XY stage has been specifically designed to provide a high resolution, and highly repeatable, means of controlling the X and Y position of a microscope stage. All axes derive their precise control through the use of closed-loop DC servomotors employing high-resolution rotary encoders for positioning feedback. By using closed-loop control of the stage position, there is no chance that the stage will become lost, as can occur with open-loop micro-stepped stages after a number of moves and direction changes. The MS-2000 XY stage utilizes crossed-roller slides, a high-precision lead screw, and zero-backlash miniature geared DC servomotors for smooth and accurate motion. The microprocessor-controlled MS-2000 control unit provides for RS-232 and USB communication with a host computer.
